First photos! David Hull on the road with Aerosmith


David Hull
, the local rock star from Tabloid Baby's school days, has crested with an unexpected supernova, filling in for Aerosmith's cancer-stricken bassist on their latest tour, playing to packed arenas and living the rock star life he helped define in the Sixties and Seventies.

And as our former bass guitar teacher gives the crowd a poignant chill when he hits the opening riff to Sweet Emotion, we turn to the Aerosmith fan site Aero Force One for the first solo tour pictures of 50-something David, and another recollection of David Hull back in the Seventies, when Aerosmith was having their first go-round:

Hey Tabloid Baby, Great "Dave" article. When the news broke weeks ago we (Followers of Dave) were doing cartwheels in the streets of Stratford. There were Congratulation Dave martini parties all weekend. Reading your story brought back memories of long ago. Dave used to leave the bathroom window open at the Pinecrest Club so we could sneak in to see him play. His musical family doesn't stop with his dad and grandmother. All three brothers are musicians also and one of his four sisters is a pianist. And lets not forget his mother who encouraged all of them. I've known the "Hulls" for many years. I've played in bands with all of them and can tell you they are the nicest people you'ld ever want to know. I've been backstage at more than a few "Dave" concerts in my days but Thursday night standing on stage in Hartford watching Dave was so intense. He's earned this the hard way and I hope that the "A" list exposure keeps him where he belongs... playing live to thousands...

(Meanwhile, Lukas won the other Rock Star Supernova last night, as we predicted at the start... and a tip of the Tabloid Baby hat to Aero Force One.)

Having lived across the street from the Hulls from 68-73 (and Stratford for most of my life), I was thrilled to see Dave get this wonderful opportunity. I've been following his career since he played with Buddy Miles. I wish him and his family the best. I just hope he remembers to not light his bedroom on fire again!

David Hull! Dirty Angels? He knew my uncle and Charlie Karp, right? That's cool. My uncle was the fella that aquired the Buddy Miles Hendrix strat back in the day. Jay sold that strat to my dad when I was a youngin' and then unfortunately Jay passed away from overdose and I miss him like all hell. David! I'll be at the show tonight. Give a call if you wish on the cell. 2o3.913.8493 and hope you're having a great time with the boys! Blessings to Tom Hamilton as well. He's so great. God bless! Michael

Recently saw him with Farrenheit-they truly rocked!!! But he is way too talented for the James Montgomery band-James has gotten so totally lame...his time has passed...

Saw James tonight at Bull Run. He did suck...so rehearsed..where is the spontaneity that makes a show great? But Dave was missing. Has he jumped ship off that sinking boat some call a band?!

Saw James tonight at the BullRun. He did suck! Talented but needs some spontaneity to spice things up. Is that not what makes music great? Where was Dave? Has he jumped ship from that sinking vessel some call a band?
