JOE PERRY'S BOOK AVAILABLE NOW!
The long awaited book "Rocks: My Life in and out of Aerosmith" by none other than Mister Joe Fucking Perry has finally been released and the wait was well worth it.
Joe pens a tale of the band that conveys some surprising (and some not so surprising) moments in the life of Aerosmith.
Many rumors are confirmed while others are dispelled all from a perspective that is uniquely Joe's.
This book is a great addition to the library of any Aerosmith fan and is pretty much a must read.
A word of caution though, as is true with any story being told by two different people, we get a number of differences between "Rock" and Steven Tyler's Book
This is not to say that either is right or wrong, or that either one is being less than honest.
It is just the nature of the beast.
So in reading both of these books try not to try not to play too much into where the stories differ and realize that quite often the actual facts fall somewhere between the two.
BLOWUPS THAT THREATENED TO END AEROSMITH
It all may be old hat to the long time Aerosmith Fans out there, but we found an article on CouncertTour.org about the boys that we thought was interesting.
"Egos have never been a subtlety for Aerosmith. They are one of the most successful bands ever, selling over 150 million albums - and plenty more once lead singer Steven Tyler became a judge on American Idol in 2010. Much of the Aerosmith's past conflicts have been between Tyler and guitarist Joe Perry, nicknamed the "Toxic Twins" for their collaborative party habits."
Steven Tyler To Have Knee Surgery - This November will be a busy one for Steven Tyler but not in the usual way. He will be rehabing from knee replacement surgery that is long over due. Normal down time for this procedure is anywhere from three to four months. All of us at AerosmithFans.com wish Steven the best and speediest return to doing what he does best.
Music From Another Dimension - Well folks we have finally had a chance to let the latest release from Aerosmith sink in. We spun the CD so many times it is almost worn out and the conclusion is unanimous for us and quite honestly we have given the whole CD a complete rethink. Music From Another Dimension fist came off to us as yet another sad attempt by the band to fit into the pop world and leave their rock and roll roots behind them for good. However after giving it a few extra listens, we hear some of the old school Aerosmith that we all love. While there are still too many sappy "professionally written" throw away songs (can you say Dianne Warren), there are a substantial number of tracks that just plain rocks. We really hope that they guys release one last REAL rock and roll CD before they retire. Specifically one with no pop tracks written to grab chart spots and nothing more. For now, Music From Another Dimension is a big step in the right direction.
