While Aerosmith work on their first studio album of original material since 2001's Just Push Play, a live release might also be in the works. In his latest online post, assistant tour manager John B. writes he is "almost positive" that last year's show at FenwayPark in Boston "will see the light of day sometime soon." Casey Patrick Tebo, Aerosmith's video director, captured the show, a double-bill with another legendary Boston band, J. Geils.
Aerosmith recently filmed a video for CampFelix, a camp for children in need. Actress and director Penny Marshall put it together. John B. says it features the band and "numerous other celebrities singing 'Walk this Way' with different lyrics. Steven [Tyler] redid his vocals moments before the video was shot."

With the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's Nevermind coming up in September, it's no surprise that people are already marking the milestone. The August issue of Spin has such musicians as Eddie Vedder, The Black Keys, Lenny Kravitz and Nirvana drummer/Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl reflecting on the album. And the magazine has assembled a tribute album called Newermind that features Nirvana's Unplugged buddies The Meat Puppets covering "Smells Like Teen Spirit." You can download the tribute album at Spin's Facebook page.

AEROSMITH entered the studio on Tuesday, July 5 with producer Jack Douglas to begin recording its long-awaited 14th studio album. "One word bout 1st day n studio 'Inspiring.'" drummer Joey Kramer tweeted yesterday. He added, "No words can describe how inspired I'm feeling in the studio right now. It's a beautiful thing." He also tweeted a photo of himself in a recording studio with Douglas (see below).

In a videotaped message that was released via AEROSMITH's official web site, bassist Tom Hamilton stated about re-teaming with Douglas, "For those of you who don't know who Jack is, he's the guy who we worked with, producing our best albums of the '70s ? 'Get Your Wings', 'Toys In The Attic' and 'Rocks'. And it's really gonna be cool, because there's no one that knows more about the soul of this band and the creative part of this band [than] Jack. We worked with him on [2004's covers CD] 'Honkin' On Bobo', but that wasn't all original material ? most of that was not original material. This time it's gonna be all-new AEROSMITH songs."

He continued, "When people say, 'What was it like to work with Jack back then?' all I can say is we just laughed the whole time; there was always laughter going on, and fun, but at the same time really digging deep to get performances that were even better than we thought we could do."

AEROSMITH's new CD is being recorded in the Massachusetts studio that the band built six years ago, will be AEROSMITH's first set of original material since 2001's "Just Push Play" and first studio offering since 2004's covers CD, "Honkin' On Bobo".

The plan to resume work on a new disc follows the completion of singer Steven Tyler's first season as a judge on "American Idol". The band, minus Perry, did get together for a week earlier this year in Los Angeles to work on new material.

AEROSMITH and Tyler almost went their separate ways in late 2009, but reunited and toured last year. However, Tyler then stunned his bandmates by taking the "Idol" job, which pushed back work on the already-delayed new record.
