JOE PERRY Says AEROSMITH May Have Recorded Their Last Album
According to The Pulse Of Radio, Joe Perry says that AEROSMITH's new "Music From Another Dimension!" album could be the band's last. While talking to Noisecreep, Perry spoke about the recent release, explaining, "We knew we had another record in us, despite what many said, and I make no bones about it, I don't know if we're gonna make another record."
Perry was pressed as to how "Music From Another Dimension!" stacks up against other AEROSMITH albums. "In order to compare, you have to not like something else," he said. "So I'll pick what I don't like and work my way up. I really didn't like 'Done With Mirrors'. I really didn't like 'Just Push Play'. Then there are other records I really think we're good for their time, like 'Toys (In The Attic') and 'Rocks'. I still listen to those and I put this one in that category of a record I will continue to listen to a lot. I can't get enough of this one."
Perry says that even taking their already 40-year-career into account — there's no reason that AEROSMITH can't be rocking onstage for decades still to come. "I think that the band has to look at what it takes to do this gracefully," he said. "There's no reason why the band can't keep playing until we can't walk. There's just no reason. You just have to know that you can't do certain things anymore. Y'know, you can't do somersaults on stage, you can't do, y'know, swing from ropes. But there are other things you can do that are just as entertaining — like sing, play."
AEROSMITH performs on Tuesday (December 11) at Tampa, Florida's Tampa Bay Times Forum and wraps its 2012 dates on Thursday (December 13) at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena.
He addressed the fact that over the past few years tensions between the bandmembers reached a fever pitch. "Our disagreements are what make us dynamic," he said. "If we all thought the same way, nothing good would happen, but even after we argue, we don't take it home. It's one of the things that allowed us to get back together. We'll argue things to death, but we deal with it, figure it out and move on. There's too much life out there to waste time being like kids in high school. We had a meeting yesterday over a video, it got really heated, but then went down to look at Steven's [Tyler, vocals] motorcycle. All was fine. Then it was like, what are you doing tonight?"
