Dream On

27 Jun, 1973

The band releases their song, Dream On, from their self titled album. Tyler:

It’s about the hunger to be somebody: Dream until your dreams come true. This song sums up the s–t you put up with when you’re in a new band. Most of the critics panned our first album, and said we were ripping off the Stones. That’s a good barometer of my anger at the press, which I still have. Dream On came of me playing the piano when I was about 17 or 18, and I didn’t know anything about writing a song. It was just this little sonnet that I started playing one day. I never thought that it would end up being a real song.
