Tom Hamilton

Bassists of my generation reverentially self-flagellate to his immortal "Sweet Emotion" motif!

A chameleonic player, Thomas William Hamilton varies his tools and tone yet maintains his identity within the harmonic boundaries of the mighty Aerosmith.

Among Tom’s co-writing credits include “Sweet Emotion,” “Janie’s Got a Gun, “Jaded,” and “Sick as a Dog.” On latter-day slabs Pump (1989), Get A Grip (1993), and Nine Lives (1997) Hamilton harbors a growling low B to further underpin the Demon of Screamin’s hoops ‘n’ hollers coupled with Joe Perry’s raucous riffage.
