    Default Aerosmith

    Start off with a news item about a solo record:

    Perry Preps First Solo Album In 21 Years

    The long-awaited solo album from Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry will see the light of day in the spring. The self-titled set, due May 3 via Columbia, boasts 11 original songs (including two instrumentals) and covers of the Doors' "The Crystal Ship" and Woody Guthrie's "Vigilante Man."

    Previewed months ago during a visit to "The Howard Stern Show," the set is the fourth album Perry has made outside of Aerosmith. In the early-1980s, he released three albums as the leader of the Joe Perry Project, two on Columbia and one through MCA.

    Unlike those past outings, "Joe Perry" finds the guitarist handling lead vocals throughout the album. The Joe Perry Project boasted a different singer on each of its albums ("Cowboy" Mach Bell, Ralph Mormon and Charlie Farren).

    Along with vocals, Perry is responsible for all of the guitars, bass and keyboards. He co-produced the set with Paul Caruso, who also contributed drums and engineered the release, which was recorded in Perry's basement home studio, the Boneyard. The only other player on the set is friend Chris Noise, who Perry describes as "an old-school analog synth guy... who plays the string part on one ballad, 'Ten Years.'" Noise is a teacher at the Boston's Berklee School of Music.

    "Seems like these days that when people go off and do a solo record, it's more the norm to bring in a bunch of all-star friends," Perry says. "But I already have the amazing fortune to play with one of the best singers in the world and the hardest rocking band on the planet.

    "But also, the way these songs developed from the demos, they already had the sound I was looking for. And it was a refreshing challenge to work this way," he adds.

    The new album's opening cut, "Shakin' My Cage," will be the first track promoted to U.S. rock radio stations.

    Here is the "Joe Perry" track list:

    "Shakin' My Cage"
    "Hold On Me"
    "Pray For Me"
    "Can't Compare"
    "Lonely"
    "Crystal Ship"
    "Talk Talkin'"
    "Push Comes To Shove"
    "Twilight"
    "Ten Years"
    "Vigilante Man"
    "Dying To Be Free"
    "Mercy"

    -- Barry A. Jeckell, N.Y.


    from www.billboard.com

    "The long-awaited solo album from Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry..." - by whom? Nothing against Joe, but I didn't know that he was making a solo album until I heard a brief mention of something on the radio the other day, or that people were actually waiting for it!

    I really want to like Aerosmith again. They seem like great guys and have a great sense of humor. But man oh man, lately when I hear about them I kinda roll my eyes.
    Now, when I hear "Dream On" or "Big Ten Inch" or even "Rag Doll" come on the radio....the fuckin volume knob goes straight to Mars. Recently though something about them just bugs the fuck outta me, and I want to believe it's something a little more than that Super Bowl disaster with Britney and the BackDoor Boys. Maybe its the music they do for crapola movies like "Armageddon", or the fact that I see clueless teens in the mall wearing their 70's and 80's tour shirts when you know they wouldn't know "Lightning Strikes" from "Last Child" (not really the band's fault there).

    Aerosmith just seems like its own bad joke to me.....I just don't know. Maybe I'm the one with the problem.

    I would venture to guess that I was one of the 12-26 folk that actually purchased Joe Perry's "Let the music do the talking" solo album when it first came out, in 1980.

    I really thought it would take off... it did not, sadly.

    It was a smokin' record, and nobody wanted to know.


    Aerosmith exists to me because of early tunes..."Seasons of Wither" at this particular moment.

    About 40 or so other tunes, for other moments.

    Honestly? Very few of them past "Night in the Ruts".

    The "Pandora's Box" era, fits me most personally.

    I enjoyed the hell out of "Done w/mirrors".

    Then something "Permanently" changed.

    "Honkin' on Bobo" wasn't bad, yet it simply (to these ears) was not enough.

    I'd like to hear more of the bluesy, "out of tune and who cares?" Aerosmith that I fell in love with.

    Pick up the first four records, and please play them loudly.

    Can't afford 'em?

    Pick up "Live Bootleg".

    Trust me...

    Default Something I don't understand...

    Why is it that people can rag on Aerosmith for doing ballads and pop
    songs and then turn right around and listen to the Hagar era Van
    Halen? I don't like Smith's 90's stuff. But it's rather tiring to hear
    somebody rag on Ragdoll or Angel and then turn right around and
    pop in "When It's Love" "Dreams" and 'Why Can't This Be Love?"
    because it simply doesn't make sense to me.

    Chefman, I absolutely relate to your line of thought on Aerosmith. The post-breakup era started out good and has gone downhill for me, but I cherish the old stuff, it's hard to beat.

    And I can offer up a loud "Amen!" on "Live Bootleg". I bought the LP from a pothead and became a pothead who sold all his LPs for cash in my early 20's, and that's one of few regrets I carry, not being able to bust out "Mama Kin" or "I Ain't Got You" now and then. "Live Bootleg" was just a musical achievement, in my humble opinion.

    I've always liked Perry's voice whenever he sings. This album will be definitely worth a listen.

    Yeah, I'm with you on that one Craig, "Live Bootleg" has always been one of my favorites! Chip Away At The Stone and Sick as a Dog on that album are 2 songs I've always loved.

    Default Aerosmith's Tyler Separating From Wife

    LOS ANGELES - Aerosmith (news - web sites) lead singer Steven Tyler and his wife of 17 years, Teresa, are separating, the singer announced Sunday.

    Tyler, 56, asked the public to respect his family's privacy in a statement released through the band's publicist, Mitch Schneider.

    "Before the tabloid media makes more of this than it is, I am announcing that my wife Teresa and I are currently separated," Tyler said. "We're just a family trying to work through a difficult time. A little privacy and sensitivity — for Teresa, my children and myself — would be nice."

    The couple have two teenage children, Chelsea, 16, and Taj, 13.

    Tyler is also the father of model Mia Tyler, 26, from a previous marriage to Cyrinda Fox, and the actress Liv Tyler, 27, from a previous relationship.

    Tyler Presents and Performs at GRAMMY Awards
    Steven Tyler, John Travolta and Christina Milian, stars of the upcoming music biz flick "Be Cool," kicked off the 47th Annual GRAMMY Awards by giving out a lifetime achievement award to blues legend, Pinetop Perkins. The trio then presented the "Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal" to Los Lonely Boys for "Heaven."
    Before the broadcast, you might have caught Steven with his "brood" (son Taj and daughter Chelsea) on the E! Red Carpet Awards pre-show, where they were interviewed by Kathy Griffin. Kathy asked young Taj what designer he was wearing, and Taj honestly replied with a shrug, "I don't know." Steven said, "A smile...isn't that the most important?"

    Steven continued that positive energy all night. During the telecast you could spot the four-time GRAMMY winner giving Green Day a standing ovation, shaking hands with the guys on their way to the stage to accept "Best Rock Album."


    Later in the show, Steven rocked his contribution to the star-studded performance of John Lennon and Paul McCartney's "Across the Universe." The powerful rendition also featured Bono, Stevie Wonder, Norah Jones, Alicia Keys, Velvet Revolver, Tim McGraw, Brian Wilson and Al Green.

    AEROSMITH To Release 'Rockin' The Joint' Live Album Next Month - Sep. 1, 2005

    AEROSMITH have set an October 25 release date for their new live album, "Rockin' the Joint". Recorded on January 11, 2002, the CD/DualDisc features such AEROSMITH classics as "Beyond Beautiful", "S.O.S.", "Light Inside", "Draw the Line", "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing", "Rattlesnake Shake" and "Walk This Way". The DVD portion will mix live performances with behind-the-scenes footage.

    "When you can play in front of 3,000 fans, it's an opportunity to pull out some of the earlier and more esoteric songs," guitarist Joe Perry said.

    AEROSMITH plan to return to arenas for another concert trek this winter. The band will then commence work on the follow-up to last year's blues album, "Honkin' on Bobo". Perry expects the new AEROSMITH record to sound like a hybrid of the loose, freewheeling "Bobo" and 2001's more technical "Just Push Play".

    "We have 30 years of playing live together, and that's a real asset," Perry told MTV.com in a recent interview. "And that's what we drew from on 'Bobo'. We didn't have time to do a full studio record, but we wanted to press the reset button and do something that was less layered and precise. I hope some of that rubs off on our next recording experience so there's still some of that live edge."

    When the hell did anything off of Just Push Play become classic??

    I'll most likely buy it cause I'm a fan, and hope they hit Philly in the winter.
