Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry
wrote this song and also shared lead vocals with Steven Tyler - Perry's first lead vocal on an Aerosmith recording. He says the song is about "heroin, cocaine and me." With money coming in thanks to the band's newfound success, Perry could afford luxuries like designer suits, and could also take as many drugs as he could handle, which was quite dangerous. The band was still going strong despite their addictions, but Perry's mother couldn't stand the sight of her emaciated son and moved to Arizona.
