Aerosmith: "A Year Ago, Nobody Wanted To Do An Album," Says Steven Tyler

Edna Gunderson at USA Today recently caught up with Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler. Read excerpts below:

While tempers have cooled, sparring "is business as usual," says Perry, 61. "We don't agree on everything. But the machine is bigger than the parts. We all know that. We sorted out what we had to sort out.

"Some personal things got overblown and a few things got misconstrued. We've been working together on the record for the last four months. Hey, if we didn't have disagreements, something would be wrong and the record wouldn't be what it is."
So what is it? Dimension, a true team effort "hammered out with everyone in the room," recalls 1976's landmark `Rocks`, Perry says.
