When recently asked about the chances of Aerosmith recording another album, guitarist Brad Whitford said, “I really don’t know. Joe Perry and I are in the trenches digging away. We’re certainly capable of sitting down with the rest of the guys and writing music.
“If that happens, great. But I’m not going to hold my breath. I really don’t know.”
He says he’s “not really” happy with the idea of 2012’s Music From Another Dimension being the band’s final release
“I said, ‘Let’s go record this the same way we recorded Toys In The Attic and Rocks.’ Aerosmith is such a good band that I wanted to basically record live, because we play so well together.
“Nobody, including my producer, would go along with that. I was just, ‘Man, what’s wrong with these guys?’ That’s the one thing I hate about Pro Tools – you can use it as a tape machine or you can use it as this crutch.
“‘Oh, everything will be on this grid. It’s so easy to edit.’ I said, ‘Was it so tough to edit in the old days?’ I mean, what the f***?”
