AEROSMITH Lead Guitarist Planning Solo Album For Spring Release

AEROSMITH are on a year-long hiatus, but that doesn't mean the members are just sitting around their houses, according to Launch Radio Networks. Lead guitarist Joe Perry is working on a solo album, and according to a post on the offical AEROSMITH fan club web site at, it's about 80 percent done, and it should come out in April. The message also teases that Perry might very well put together a band and do a solo tour before AEROSMITH regroups next year.

Earlier this year, Perry told Launch Radio Networks that his solo record would be different from the ones he made during the period after he left AEROSMITH in the early '80s: "I have a lot of material that I have ready to go, so it's just a matter of, like, timing, and making sure it's right, because the whole reason I did a solo record the last time came from a whole 'nother place, you know, like, the band broke up and all that," he said. "This time, I would want to do it so that it works with what AEROSMITH is doing, as opposed to against it."

There have also been reports that lead singer Steven Tyler is also putting together a solo album, but nothing's been confirmed.

The AEROSMITH TV special called "You Gotta Move" that was shown on A&E in June will be expanded and released on DVD on November 23. It will also be screened at Regal Cinema movie theaters around the country that same night. To order tickets, go to
