Our legendary guitarist of the day is Mr. BRAD WHITFORD (Bradley Ernest "Brad" Whitford born February 23, 1952) is an American musician who is best known for serving as the rhythm guitarist for the hard rock band Aerosmith. His solid rhythm playing served as an important ingredient to the now-identifiable Aerosmith sound. He has also worked as a songwriter for the group, co-composing well-received tracks such as 1976's "Last Child", "Nobody's Fault" and "Round and Round". Aerosmith would go on to be one of the most successful bands of the 1970s. Whitford left the band in 1981 to work on his own project with singer Derek St. Holmes, simply called Whitford/St. Holmes. Whitford briefly toured with The Joe Perry Project, featuring former Aerosmith band mate Joe Perry, before both Perry and Whitford rejoined Aerosmith in 1984. Whitford also served as a producer for a well-known Boston band, The NeighborhoodsIn 2010. Whitford was announced as one of the guitarists to take part in the Experience Hendrix tour, playing songs performed and inspired by Jimi Hendrix along with other musicians such as Joe Satriani, Sacred Steel, Jonny Lang, Eric Johnson, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Ernie Isley, Living Colour, Hubert Sumlin, Chris Layton, and bassist Billy Cox. In 2013 played with Buddy Guy, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry on Evil Twin.
He has played lead guitar on "Sick as a Dog" and "Back In the Saddle" (on which Perry plays six string bass), "Last Child", and on the ballads "You See Me Crying" and "Home Tonight". He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.
