Aerosmith Leftovers

(Day in Rock) Aerosmith is looking to their songs in the attic to fill out their new studio album, according to Joe Perry.

"There's some stuff we left off certain records that we've been scratching our heads over why that happened," Perry told Billboard. "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."

They may also go to those outside songwriters again as well, so we have that to look forward to next spring with the album should hit stores. But for now you can catch them this summer on tour with Motley Crue on the Route of All Evil tour. "You still think of them as kids," Perry said of Motley. "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."

"Dream on" kicks the ass of any of these outside songs.] - Click here for the Full Story
