different title. Now here is the blurb.

Aerosmith In Classic Frame Of Mind On New Album
June 23, 2006, 10:45 AM ET
Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.

Aerosmith is in the thick of work on its new studio album, which should
be
out in spring 2007 via Columbia. The process had not been hindered by
vocalist
Steven Tyler's recent throat surgery, according to guitarist Joe Perry.
"He's
sounding better than ever," Perry tells Billboard.com. "Even just
listening
to him talk, his voice has this timbre that I haven't heard for years."

In addition to considering material from outside songwriters, Aerosmith
is
looking to its archives for inspiration.

"There's some stuff we left off certain records that we've been
scratching
our heads over why that happened," Perry says. "There's also bits and
pieces of
things we haven't got to, and some stuff from [the 2004 blues album]
'Honkin' on Bobo' that never got finished. We want to bring some of the
elements of
the experimenting we've done on the albums over the last few years and
mash
that in with that 'Honkin' on Bobo'-kind of energy."

"It's kind of like the old story of the 100-year-old hammer handed down
for
three generations," Perry says by way of describing the method to
Aerosmith's
madness in the studio. "The handle has been changed three times, and
the head
changed four. For us, we're the same old hammer, but updated a few
times."

"Some songs are still two riffs and a chorus but they're classic
Aerosmith:
a guitar riff and the vocals and the slammin' rhythm section," he
enthuses.


It's funny how some of it sounds like that to me. Some of it has
bell-bottoms
and big hair but it's surprising how well it fits today's playlists."

Perry says he can't wait to hit the road with Motley Crue on the the
Route
of All Evil tour, which begins Sept. 14 in Holmdel, N.J. "In some ways
Motley
Crue is like a baby band to me," he says. "You still think of them as
kids.
But they have gone through all the things bands go through, come back
and they
have a whole batch of fans who saw them at the first rock show they
ever
went to. When you turn on classic rock radio now, you have Motley Crue,
Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin and the Stones."

In addition, Perry promises Aerosmith will be dusting off a song or two
from
its back catalog, similar to "Seasons of Wither" and "Draw the Line,"
which
have come back from the dead on recent tours.

"Other songs will get that day in the sun, because they never did," he
says.
"Maybe other songs crowded them out. In the late '80s and early '90s,
we had
those singles to play and there wasn't as much interest from the fans
in
those songs. But there are fans that are now discovering some of those
early
records."

LOL!
I thought this quote was quite humorous.

Come on, Joe .... Motley Crue???????
I know you have to sell the tour and all ... but let's be realistic here.
Motley Crue is not classic rock, and should not even be mentioned in the
same sentence with the three bands above.

Bear in mind this is the same Joe that said "Anyone that doesn't like
KISS doesn't like rock-n-roll".

Yep.
Aerosmith is more a business, and less a band of musicians.

The Crue nukes the Stones. Shit Keith has been dead for 20 years now,
Satisfaction was great during Nam, but that's over long long ago.
