    Interesting review of the songs I wrote for Aerosmith. Just like many bands and artists these days, Aerosmith also used a ghost songwriter. The “Jungle” sounds were inspired by one of my favorite but stupid ELO songs “Jungle”. I did sometimes used many pen names (including Alexander Nevermind, Don Von Tress, Desmond Child and Max Martin) or let the artist take credit. The idea to write the song Eat the Rich came from Krokus when they released their 1983 album Headhunter with the song “Eat the Rich” and saw them in concert with Def Leppard. To commemorate that date…I borrowed their song title. An interesting fact about “Living on the Edge” and “Nine Lives” is that the song titles came from lyrics of “Black Cat” which I wrote for Janet Jackson.
