On Monday, June 11, “The Emily Rooney Show”, which airs on the 89.7 WGBH radio station in Boston, Massachusetts, conducted an interview with AEROSMITH bassist Tom Hamilton. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.
According to The Pulse Of Radio, AEROSMITH guitarist Joe Perry admits he’s still amazed how the band has managed to keep it together over the past 40 years. Perry explained to the Boston Herald that somehow when it came time to craft the material on the group’s upcoming album, “Music From Another Dimension”, they were willing to put all of their personal differences aside for the benefit of the music. “I have no idea how it works,” he said. “With AEROSMITH, we put one foot in front of the other and hope for the best. . . There are bands that don’t talk to each other for five years, and then get back together and go out and play their songs and they turn into the best cover band of their own songs. That’s fine and well, but for us it will be always changing. We’ve been trying to write this record for 10 years, and we finally did.”
Steven Tyler, whose decision to take the job as a judge on Fox‘s “American Idol” caused yet another major rift between his and Perry‘s relationship, added, “It’s the same bottle man. We just corked it. Everything that was cooking inside and fermenting to that just right year just happened to be now. It was the perfect time. . . With great pressure comes great diamonds.”
Joe Perry told The Pulse Of Radio that no matter what goes on with AEROSMITH, there’s a bond between him and Steven Tyler that is almost unbreakable. “We’ve been together for so long that in my heart, it’s never more than six inches away from Steven‘s, ever,” he said. “Even though we may not talk for a short amount of time or a long amount of time, we’ve been partners, friends for so long, I always have a feeling deep inside that we’re always gonna be together. And that’s what makes AEROSMITH as strong as it is.”
