Aerosmith's Joe Perry: Fans Don't Want to Hear New Music

Fans waiting on another Aerosmith record will have to keep waiting, according to guitarist Joe Perry .

"With us being off the record label, we're really not sure yet," the guitarist tells Boston magazine .  Furthermore, Perry suggests, recording new music may be futile.

"When we go out there and play live, people don't really want to hear a thing unless they know it.  We've played a couple of songs off the new record and gotten some polite applause," he says.  "Before the tour and after the record came out, I tweeted, 'What song off the new record would you like to hear?'  The first tweet I got back was, 'It depends on what song you have to take out of the set.'"

Perry says that feedback like that puts "things in perspective."

"I don't know if it's worth going in and sweating blood over a new record when we could be out on the road playing all these other songs that people want to hear," he explains.

He adds that he has spent the last three years finishing his soon-to-be-published memoir, Rocks: My Life In and Out of Aerosmith , and crafting a new solo record.

"I mean, I really feel like [finishing] it now," he says of the solo project.  "I've got five or six things ready to go.  The approach has just been different than the other ones I've done."
