Steven Tyler Has an Itch to Record a Solo Album…Would You Buy it?
Steven Tyler recently revealed in an interview to Rolling Stone Magazine that he’s thinking about doing a solo album. Something he has never done.Here’s what Steven told Rolling Stone:
“Joe Perry has done, like, four solo albums. I never have, though with lyrics and arrangements and so forth a lot of Aerosmith albums are just fine for me. It’s cathartic. But I had a lot of fun doing ‘(It) Feels So Good’. I wrote that with Marti Frederiksen. I’ve got this itch in me to do a solo record, and that’s what I’m gonna do next. I’ve got some great people that want to get involved in it. It’s early on right now, but that’s the itch I got. I got that itch to do something that’s a lot different than Aerosmith. Aerosmith’s never been better, but we did that album. This last album was an AEROSMITH all-for-one-and-one-for-all. But my heart is in stuff like that weirder, off-the-cuff stuff that I’m not sure Aerosmith would like. I’m into electronica — I was when I used to listen to Stockhausen in ’65. So there’s just a lot of stuff — good, weird fucking music that I want to get off my chest. The band will be playing, and we’re going to China and Singapore. It’s gonna open up a whole new world for Aerosmith. So Aerosmith will always be around, but I got this itch and I know how to scratch it.”
