Shamelessly lifted from Wiki:
By 1977, Aerosmith had released four studio albums, the two most recent – Toys in the Attic (1975) and Rocks (1976) – catapulting the band to stardom. However, as the band began recording its next album, Draw the Line, their excessive lifestyle, combined with constant touring and drug use, began to take its toll. “Draw the Line was untogether because we weren’t a cohesive unit anymore,” guitarist Joe Perry admitted in the Stephen Davis band memoir Walk This Way. “We were drug addicts dabbling in music, rather than musicians dabbling in drugs. Although the LP would sell well more than a million copies in fewer than six weeks after its release, in 2014 Perry would refer to it as “the beginning of the end” and “the decay of our artistry.”
I dunno, Joe, I still dig it! Sure, it may sound like a demo, but my favourite Stones album is Exile, and they weren’t exactly sober for any of that, either.
