  1. Hi! Greetings from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
    Recently discovered your site, really great and thorough insight and info on demo tapes and sound quality!
    Have you got them and or/trade them?
    I’d love to have a listen to the 1992/93/96/97 outtakes.

    Best regards


    1. Hey Agustin, I don’t think it was ever played live… that sounds like it was coming from an in-studio band rehearsal from 1996 and it was only those 2 seconds that leaked years ago, no full recording available or live performance that we know of. As for other outtakes, we are looking to promote fan interest and discussion about the Aerosmith outtakes, but we don’t have any full recordings, you can find more info on them an the sources of information in a few articles published 😉
