With Steven Tyler spending the first four months of 2015 working on a solo album in Nashville one may assume this may NOT be a rock album. I’m sure there will be elements of rock since he IS the unmistakable voice of Aerosmith. He told an audience at the Twitter Music conference recently that he’s going down to Nashville ,” [in] January, February, March, April to write and see what we get,” he said. “You know, doing an album is kind of like panning for gold. You get so much sand and dirt until you find a little nugget and you work on the nugget. I always go backwards, you know? ‘Living on the Edge,’ why? Or ‘Janie’s Got a Gun,’ why? Who’s Janie? And then it works. You fill in the blanks.”
Steven has being toying with the idea of solo album for some time now and he mentioned that he had met with Rick Rubin to discuss producing the record. You might remember that Rubin produced Run-D.M.C’s version of “Walk This Way” that featured Tyler and Joe Perry. Oh and speaking of Joe his new book apparently throws his toxic twin under the bus. “Rocks: My Life In and Out of Aerosmith. It’s not known if Steven has read the book yet. Yikes!
