  6. "...signature riffs, and it becomes clear why Aerosmith has been tagged 'America's Greatest Rock and Roll Band.' Few bands on the globe—forget just the United States—have accomplished what Aerosmith have. The band has sold more than 150 million albums worldwide and has won countless awards, including three Grammys. And, with a few exceptions, Aerosmith has delivered on its promise: to make music that strikes the listener in the heart, feet, soul and groin." in Walker, Don (August 15, 1998), "Rock This Way: A Brief History of Roads Taken", Billbaord, 110 (33), p. 20, ISSN 0006-2510
