Aerosmith: Brad Whitford Talks "Music From Another Dimension!"

Brad Whitford spoke with Robert Cavuoto from recently about a number of topics including their new album, "Music From Another Dimension!". A few excerpts from the chat follow:

Robert: At what point did you realize that "Music From Another Dimension" was going to be the ultimate Aerosmith CD that fans had been waiting for?

Brad Whitford: "That’s a good question. We had an initial writing session for this CD about a year and half ago, where we worked up seven or eight songs with Marti Frederiksen in LA. We had a good vibe right from that start and were having a lot of fun doing it. From there we went into the studio with Jack Douglas (producer) a few months later. We had a tremendous amount of ideas to work with I think even the band was surprised at the result." 

Robert: Is it true that you went back to some left over riffs and unreleased demos for "Music From Another Dimension"? 

Brad Whitford: "There were some things that we were sitting on for a long time but never got around to finishing until now. Ideas that we knew they were good, yet didn’t throw them aside. We took them out of the box and said, 'Hmm, this one’s good' and 'I like this one.'" 

Robert: Where does this MFAD rate for you personality compared to all your other CDs? 

Brad Whitford: "I think it might be one of the better CDs that we have ever done. Lots of times you make a CD and end up with one or two tracks that you’re not totally happy with. And that typically that has to do with how much materials you have to work with. We had enormous amount of material. I think if we stayed in the studio any longer we would have enough for another two or three CDs. The creativity was really flowing. When I listen back to the CD, I hear all these great songs. I don’t feel that I would have done anything different. I’m really proud of each individual note. These are all nice finished ideas. CDs like this don’t always happen."
