Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organize information in articles related to Aerosmith, its members (Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton, Brad Whitford and Joey Kramer), all Aerosmith songs and albums, and all other related people and topics. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and/or see the to-do list.

Articles to Create[edit]

Articles for each individual concert tour[edit]

This website or this website may be helpful in compiling basic information about the tours, including tour dates.

Photos Needed[edit]

Photos of Aerosmith are few and far between on Wikipedia currently. What is needed are free-use images, where the author of the photo explicitly gives permission for their image to be used freely. Quality images that you or someone you know took are often easiest to obtain and easy to prove of their free status. These images are particularly needed:

  • Aerosmith in the 1970s
  • Aerosmith in the 1980s
  • Aerosmith in the 1990s
  • Joey Kramer
  • Ray Tabano
  • Jimmy Crespo
  • Rick Dufay

These images are also needed, but not as critically needed as the others:

  • Tim Collins
  • John Kalodner
  • Jim Vallance
  • Marti Frederiksen
  • Taylor Rhodes
  • Bruce Fairbairn
  • Jack Douglas
  • Richie Supa
  • Girls of Summer Tour (either of band performing or of an advertisement)
  • Aerosmith fans, preferably wearing blue denim (for Blue Army article)
