AEROSMITH's JOE PERRY To Form Production Company

AEROSMITH guitarist Joe Perry reportedly plans to start a production company to sign some "baby bands"' to help accelerate their careers.

''I just hear too much music that comes and goes," Perry told the Boston Globe. ''The whole industry is so shaken up all the time that I think a lot of this new music scares off the old guard. They don't know what to make of it. But it's coming along, just as sure as the sun rises, and it's exciting and invigorating. For me, as an artist, I love it. I love new acts like BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB, THE HIVES, and THE STROKES. There are some great bands out there. They love THE RAMONES and the early rock stuff and it reflects in their music. And I even like ANDREW W.K. His is one of the best new rock records that I've heard."

Perry also likes the Boston band THE GENTLEMEN. "I've heard their record. They're good. That's the stuff, that's the life blood of what I'm talking about.''

Perry's search for new bands will include his home base around Boston and far beyond. ''I get demos from all over the country,'' he said. ''It's not just a local thing. We live in Boston and love it here, but we have a pretty global view of everything at this point.''
