Tucked at the bottom in this Billboard item on the new Aerosmith record–the details of which are completely up in the air, save for the fact that it’s eventually going to be recorded–is this curious quote from Joe Perry on the next edition of Guitar Hero, which will apparently be a classic rock block devoted to the Toxic Twins:
Besides the album, Aerosmith is also working closely with the makers of “Guitar Hero IV,” which will be dedicated to the Boston group’s music. “I don’t know much about the technical part of it,” Perry says, “but artistically we’re working hand in hand.”
An all-Aerosmith Guitar Hero could be really great or really terrible–here’s hoping that someone on the “artistic” side will convince the powers that be to include more songs from Rocks, and fewer from Honkin’ On Bobo. (And no ballads, for the love of Tyler.) Seriously, could you imagine how many would-be Perrys would be completely stymied by the opening run of “Lick And A Promise”?
