Joe Perry talks about making amends with Steven Tyler and the next Aerosmith album

In a short interview with BostonHerald.com, Joe Perry was asked questions about making amends with Steven Tyler after their very public fall out and also what is next to come for Aerosmith.

When asked about Tyler returning, Joe had this to say:

A month ago we had a sitdown and Steven said, “I’m ready to front the band again and let’s book some gigs.” He looked really strong and healthy and happy and ready to rock. I had one sentence to say to him and he had one sentence to say to me and that finished it. (Those sentences) are just between me and him. I knew the band was going to get back together, I just didn’t know if it was going to take a week or a month or a year. Steven and I have been together for 40 years and no bumps in the road are going to change that.

The interview went on to ask about a new album and then about writing their first material in a decade:

We definitely want to make another record. The way the industry is, there’s not a record company screaming at us to make an album, but we feel like we still have a really good record inside us. Not just one, who knows how many. Obviously we can’t plot things out the way we could when we were 25, but it’s happening. It’s just a matter of figuring out when we’re going to be on the beach and when we’re going to be in the studio.

Obviously, I’d like to write with him. We really haven’t talked much about that since we’ve decided to play gigs again. I know the subject will come up and we’ll see what feels comfortable. Like I said, we’re not the same guys we were when we were 25. But in a few ways we’re similar and I’d like to get back to the way we used to write. I really feel this vibe of the 40th anniversary of the band. To me that means making an album for us and the fans, not one that will just satisfy the label or some A&R man.
