In a brand new interview with Digital Journal, AEROSMITH bassist Tom Hamilton was asked about the possibility of a follow-up to the band’s 2012 album “Music From Another Dimension!” He responded: “It’s hard to get [AEROSMITH singer] Steven [Tyler] to think about it right now because he’s doing his little thing there [referring to Tyler’s upcoming country solo album] … I know Joe [Perry, AEROSMITH guitarist] is into it, I know I’m into it. I think once Steven’s been through the cycle of his solo album, he’s gonna want to come back and do another one…”
He continued: “We’ll figure out a way — whatever it takes. There’s still a lot of creativity in the band and there’s still a lot of desire to get better and do something better than what we’ve done before. So as long as that’s there, there’s always a chance for a new AEROSMITH album.”
Hamilton also talked about Tyler’s recent comment that the other members of AEROSMITH were less than happy about his new solo project.
“I saw that quote where he sort of made a blanket remark that we’re mad at him for doing it, which is ridiculous — that’s his own perception,” said Tom.
“It’s funny; sometimes he’ll talk about how he’s been persecuted by the band over the years, but whatever… If it causes drama, let’s show that! He wanted to do this creative exercise of going and making an album, and I can’t blame him for wanting to do it. Joe’s done it before, I’d love to do it someday. Why be angry about it?”
