AEROSMITH Guitarist To Appear On A&E's 'Storage Wars'

AEROSMITH guitarist Brad Whitford will appear in an upcoming episode of A&E's "Storage Wars". In the episode, Brad's friend wins a storage unit, which he finds a couple vintage guitars in. To get some expertise and to find out what they are worth, he goes to Brad. Brad sheds light on the worth of the guitars and gives a little history on the vintage piece.

A little behind-the-scenes clip of the upcoming episode can be seen below.

Coming on May 10 is AEROSMITH's latest hits collection, "Tough Love: The Best Of The Ballads". The album, which features 11 latter-day AEROSMITH favorites — with the band's 1973 classic "Dream On" closing out the set. "Tough Love" comes on the heels of The Hollywood Reporter posting that the band's catalogue has experienced a 250 percent sales hike since frontman Steven Tyler joined Fox's "American Idol" as one of the hosts of the show's 10th season.

Oddly, songs that in no way, shape, or form could be deemed "ballads" — such as "Love In An Elevator" and "Janie's Got A Gun" — are included on the album; yet the band's biggest ballad, 1998's No. 1 hit, "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing", is nowhere to be found on the new compilation.

Steven Tyler told The Pulse Of Radio that AEROSMITH releasing numerous compilations over the years shows that — unlike many of their peers — the band is truly unstoppable. "We have that one thing about us, that we never quit, we never gave up, we always went on tour, and we always did an album," he said. "If you were to ask me, 'What's the greatest thing AEROSMITH ever did?' — we stuck around."

The Pulse Of Radio asked Tyler how a band like AEROSMITH — which is going on 40 years in the spotlight — can hope to revitalize itself every time out. "Maybe in the new songs," he said. "In writing new songs, you always come up with a new you. I think you should. You can always do another 'Dude Looks Like A Lady', another 'Dream On' — we always tap into something new."
