BOSTON — Just three years ago, it looked like Aerosmith might be done as lead singer Steven Tyler went back into rehab. But "I never believed we had played our last Aerosmith show," bassist Tom Hamilton says now — and the week of July 16 proves him right, with two shows at the TD Garden. It hasn't always been easy dealing with the flamboyant lead singer, Hamilton admits. Fortunately, after so many years, "You start to gain wisdom and you start to know which things you should let bother you."
