"Blind Man" is a song by American hard rock band Aerosmith. It was written by Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, and Taylor Rhodes. It was released as a single in November 1994 from the Geffen-era compilation album Big Ones, one of three songs from that greatest hits record not previously released on any Aerosmith studio album, which was also released in November (see 1994 in music).
Despite the song's moderate success, the band hardly ever performed it live after the 1993-1994 Get a Grip Tour.
The song was recorded at two separate sessions, the first session took place at Power Station, New York City in April 1994, and was engineered by Adam Kasper with second engineering by Chris Albert. The second session took place at Capri Digital Studios, Capri, Italy in June, and was also engineered by Adam Kasper, but the second engineer on that session was Max Carola.

The video for the song was also one of the only songs from Aerosmith's Geffen era not released on the video collection Big Ones You Can Look At. The live performance portions of the video were filmed during the day at The Summit in Houston, Texas before Aerosmith's performance there on September 30, 1994. The video was directed by Marty Callner, and featured cameo appearances by Pamela Anderson and A&R man John Kalodner.
