One year ago, AEROSMITH released its latest album, "Music From Another Dimension!" The record didn't do as well as the band's previous efforts, having debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard album chart after selling 63,000 copies in its first week of release.
When VH1 Radio Network's Dave Basner caught up with Brad Whitford, the AEROSMITH guitarist reflected on the album.
"We have a lot of issues with the last record now," Brad said. "We felt like… I don't know, we feel like we missed the mark a little bit and I'm not quite sure what we would've done different but we feel like we should've done something a little different but I don't think we know what it was. We had a good time making it but I don't know if the material that we did really translated. I don't know… Maybe we're a little bit stuck in the way we do things. I don't know. We kind of did it old school and thought we were going in the right direction but… I don't know. I don't know."
VH1 Radio Network asked Brad what that all means for future music from the band and here's what he had to say: "We still have a lot of creative juices flowing so, I don't know. Maybe we'll experiment a bit more in maybe the writing process and stuff. So I don't know. Maybe we need to go back and do some more… maybe bring in some more contemporary people to work with and maybe take a few twists and turns. I don't know."
"Music From Another Dimension!" included the single "Can't Stop Lovin' You", featuring Steven Tyler duetting with Carrie Underwood. The album also included "Freedom Fighter", which featured Johnny Depp on backing vocals.
