It's an interesting risk, and one that I'll mention again during this review.
As for the game, though I stated at the top that the game focuses on a single band, that's not entirely true. The Career Mode content is made up of 30 main songs, broken into six sets of five songs each-and there's an extra "song" in the last set, which is a "Guitar Battle" against…well, we'll keep this write-up free of spoilers, so if you don't already know, you'll have to find out for yourself. Each set "opens" with two songs from noted bands that have opened for Aerosmith through the band's career, such as Cheap Trick, Stone Temple Pilots and The Clash. The remaining three songs in each set are Aerosmith tunes."
