Aerosmith, Foreigner Members Inducted To Songwriters Hall of Fame


According to the Associated Press, Aerosmith vocalist Steven Tyler and guitarist Joe Perry will be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame alongside Mick Jones and Lou Gramm of Foreigner.

There’s no doubt that Tyler and Perry have written some of the most iconic rock & roll tunes over the past 40 years. Hits such as “Walk This Way” and “Dream On” have propelled the band to new heights over the years, allowing them to push on and continue doing what they love.

The same can be said of Mick Jones and Lou Gramm of Foreigner, having pushed out classic singles such as “Jukebox Hero” and “I Wanna Know What Love Is”.

Holly Knight, famous for penning Pat Benetar’s “Love Is A Battlefield”, JD Souther, a longtime writing partner of The Eagles, and Tony Hatch, who helped write a few Bowie tracks, will all help salute the 80s alongside Aerosmith and Foreigner.
