I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing

Tom Hamilton of Aerosmith, Maple Leaf Gardens,...

This is a cover for an Aerosmith song. “I don’t want to miss a thing!” Well, I don’t want to miss it if it involves love. There are lots of things in life I HAVE been exposed to that I would like to have passed up. But I don’t want to leave this song on the table. Enjoy!!
