From Steve Nelson:
"The Music Museum Of New England is launching the Boston Music Trail with a marker at Aerosmith’s apartment at 1325 Comm. Ave. in Brighton, where the band lived and rehearsed together when they first moved to Boston in 1971. Celebrating the release of its new record, Aerosmith will arrive at the site at noon on Monday, November 5, playing live on a flatbed truck. Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and MMONE’s Steve Nelson will unveil the marker, the first of several to honor sites significant to the musical history of the city. The launch of the Trail is made possible by a grant from Ernie Boch Jr.’s Music Drives Us Foundation. MMONE operates a virtual museum at www.mmone.org."
Anyone who would like to nominate a music location should contact Steve Nelson through the museum's website.
