K ronomyth 1.0 in the constellation of Aerosmith. A new pair of glimmer twins inched out of the rock forest from an unmythical place called Massachusetts. They brought with them the promise of a dream, a relative of some renown (“Mama Kin”) and six cans of flavorless hard rock stew in their parcel. At the head of the troupe stood Steven Tyler: a sexual sometimes sage-like creature with a rapid-fire delivery that could only come from such an improbably wide mouth. There was a glimmer of glam-like sauciness to them, a southern swagger and a northern malcontentedness in their music that marked them as a new breed. But they were young, their shimmering single belied their years, and while their first offing boded well it brought only a little reputation rather than riches. The real adventures were waiting down the interstellar road apiece. What was here stoked only a small mythology about smoking tea and the dubious teachings of a would-be wizard named Tyler. Today, tourists come here to marvel at “Dream On,” get reacquainted with “Mama Kin” and then move on. You’d be advised to do the same, since only cultists would dream of spending their vacation on this rock.
