Foo Fighters Inspired New Aerosmith DVD

. (Classic Rock) Aerosmith say they were inspired to film last year's Download headline set after seeing gigs on TV by artists including Foo Fighters. Aerosmith Rocks Donington 2014 was released this week across the US - and frontman Steven Tyler reveals watching high-def music channel Palladia was a driving force behind the decision to record the landmark concert.

He tells Rolling Stone: "They show a lot of festivals, so whenever you turn it on, you see the Stones or Tom Petty or Foo Fighters and they're f***ing kicking ass. You're watching it in your hotel room and you realise, 'That's a great format.'"

And guitarist Joe Perry considers it one of their best performances from last year and felt everything clicked into place as soon as they hit the stage. He adds: "We were really picking up speed. As you get near the end of a tour, the band gets better and the shows get better. The audience was on the money, the weather was decent - it felt like a special show." Read more here.
