Ill Funk’s Axe Man, BJ Fitzgerald, Counts Down His Five Favorite Aerosmith Songs


First of all, lets start out by saying that BJ has one fantastic name.  I am pretty partial to it.  He also digs Aerosmiths riffs, and double entendres. Is there anything better than a song with a perverted meaning?  The answer is no.  BJ Fitzgerald of the Ill Funk Ensemble spends most nights tearing up the Albany area music scene by bringing the funk.  If you have ever seen Ill Funk tear up the stage at Savannah’s, you know they don’t mess around.

When we mentioned that Aerosmith was coming to town he was more than happy to give us his favorite tunes, and tell why he loves each and every one of them.

5. Big Ten Inch Record

The double entenrde combined with a great rhythm and blues, horn-driven hook gets me every time.

4. Train Kept A-Rollin’

Dirty, driving and what rock ‘n roll is all about.

3. Crazy

I’ll never forget my teenage years staring at MTV while Liv Tyler and Alicia Silverstone frolicked in next to nothing to this song. For that alone, it’s worth my list, though it doesn’t hurt that it’s a great track.

2. Falling In Love (Is Hard On The Knees)

Some people poo-poo Aerosmith’s newer tracks, but this track is so, so filthy. Horns, monster harmonies and huge guitars. Love. It.

1. Last Child

My God, what a riff- funky, driving, and catchy as hell. So many rock songs lack that pocket, that groove- but this? This is a master class on the art of the pocket.

Aerosmith hits Albany on June 29th, tickets are on sale now! More info here.
