Aerosmith – “Come Together” Live At The 1991 Grammy Awards
I Know You, You Know Me!
During the 33rd Grammy Awards held at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City, Aerosmith performed “Come Together” to honor John Lennon. The song was written by Lennon as the opening track to “Abbey Road.” It was released on October 1969.
Gere explained that Lennon was being honored “for redefining the subject matter and musical content of popular music and for his extraordinary ability as a musician, singer, songwriter, philosopher, communicator and activist for peace, love and understanding and might I say total nonviolence.”
While there have been several recorded covers for this track, Aerosmith’s version is undeniably one of the most successful. It was recorded and released in 1978 and was featured as soundtrack to “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” It peaked at number 23 in the US Billboard Hot 100!
The song has also surfaced on a number of Aerosmith compilations and live albums since then, as well as on the soundtrack for the film Armageddon.
Though it’s a cover tune, Steven Tyler makes it his own with his distinctive powerful voice!
