“This band was my stones!”.

Then, official account of Aerosmith has posted the screenshot of Nikki Sixx’s share on Instagram stories. See the post below.

In another interview, Nikki Sixx talked about Aerosmith and said:

Aerosmith was probably my biggest musical influence. I have lifted little pieces of Aerosmith all along, and probably always will. In my eyes that band can just do no wrong.

When I was 14, I listened to Aerosmith… I was a typical rock ‘n’ roll kid in the ’70’s. Classic rock stems from the blues. Being a modern-day band, all of us didn’t have a chance to grow up with the Yardbirds and stuff like that. Aerosmith and Led Zeppelin, we grew up on that.”
