Album: Toys In The Attic (1975)

Songfacts®:

  • Written by Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, this song came at a time when Tyler was struggling to come up with effective lyrics for the tracks on Toys In The Attic. The band told him to write about what he knew, so he come up with words about life on road - the hotels, groupies, and boredom. Tyler calls the song "my diary."
  • The opening lyrics, "Blood stains the ivories of my daddy's baby grand," relate to the piano Tyler would park himself under while his dad - a classically trained musician - would play.
