Aerosmith NOT on Gone In 60 Seconds Soundtrack!
CDworld.com has just put up the track listing for the upcoming "Gone In 60
Seconds" soundtrack album:
1} The Cult- "Painted On My Heart"
2} Gomez- "Machismo"
3} Armada- "Rap Groove"
4} Moby- "Flower"
5} The Chemical Brothers- "Leave Home"
6} Ice Cube- "Roll All Day"
7} Apollo Four Forty- "Stop The Rock"
8} A3- "To Sick To Pray"
9} BT [Featuring M Doughty]- "Never Gonna Come Back Down"
10} Method Man & Redman- "Da Rockwilder"
11} Citizen King- "Better Days (And The Bottom Drops Out)"
12} Cavier- "Sugerless"
God! Seeing that track listing makes me even more glad the boys didn't do
it. I mean, a hip-hop/techo soundtrack with one rock ballad? Well, now we
know that the boyz just gave their re-recorded version of "Back In The
Saddle" to the "Shanghai Noon" movie, so we can all see that instead.
Hmmm...First "Blue Eyes Blue" by Diane Warren..the boyz record it...then say
no. So, Eric Clapton does it. Then, "Painted On My Heart" by Diane
Warren...the boyz recored it...then say no. So, The Cult does it. I wonder

New Aerosmith stuff at Amazon
I have learned of two new Aerosmith and Aero-related releases. One of them is a

Just a little more on Shanghai Noon
"Back In The Saddle" is in the movie Shanghai Noon. They play it toward the end while our "heroes" are escaping the gallows. Sounds like a cool new version, although they
only play the intro, the first "I'm Back In The Saddle" Agains, and "Riding
High". They repeat it at the end of the movie while they are showing
outtakes, but that's all you hear.:(
Did some research on the soundtrack,
which is being released on June 6, and it's sadly just a score soundtrack, so
the bad news is we may never hear this entire new version (Produced by "The
Boneyard Boys"), and you'll have to go to the movie to hear what you can.

Steven Tyler quote from official GNR site
Mike Rock: You guys have been huge influences to many bands throughout the

Steven Tyler: Well, its funny you say that because a few nights ago I got a
call on the phone and it was Axl. It was strange 'cause I hadn't heard from
him for about 2 years and he goes to me ''Dude, I got this song that I want
you to hear. Its really fuckin' blowin my mind right now and I don't know
if I should include it on the album''. It was fuckin' hysterical to tell
you the truth. There goes Axl again out of nowhere asking me for my opinion.
Mike Rock: Did you listen to the song?
Steven Tyler: Well yeah, I went down to his studio a few nights after the
call and sat down with him to go over the song. I ended up hearing most of
the songs for the album and it was fuckin' great. A little unusual for a

Aerosmith Working With Glen Ballard Again
(5/24/00, 12 p.m. ET) - Aerosmith is currently writing songs for its next
album, and famed Alanis Morissette producer and co-writer Glen Ballard will
be working with the band. Ballard told LAUNCH that songs for the next album
are already underway.
"We wrote a song in Boston about two months ago and we'd like to get together
and write some more this summer," he said "Whether it happens in Boston or
L.A., [it] will happen because I have a deep and abiding love for that band
and for Joe Perry and Steven Tyler. We always have fun and do something
interesting when we are together, so that will continue, and we have a great
song in the can."
The song already has a title, "Beyond Forever," and LAUNCH asked Ballard if
the new track is a ballad. "No, it's not a ballad but it's a mid-tempo,
slightly ethereal song," he said. "It's new ground for them. It's going to
the new place. It's still very much them, but certainly it encapsulates their
sound and then some. It's going to be good."
Aerosmith and Ballard worked together for the band's last album, Nine Lives,
penning the songs "Taste Of India," "Pink," and "Falling In Love (Is Hard On

Aerosmith mention by the band Everclear
Marty Idziak reports: This past Saturday I was at a radio show here in Chicago and got a chance to talk to Art Alexakis, the lead singer from the band Everclear. He noticed the Aerosmith jacket I was wearing and I asked if he would cover an Aerosmith tune in the band's set later, to which he said that the band's next album will sound a lot like Aerosmith "Rocks", I thought that was very cool of him to say, considering Art admires both Steven and Joe for their spirit and originality.....
Art talks to Joe Perry sometimes, and he meant that their new record would
have the same type of energy that "Rocks" had for Aerosmith when it came out
back in the 70's thats all......

take them somewhere they've never been before, and make people appreciate
it?' We can't wait." Matchbox Twenty producer Matt Serletic also has signed

Aerosmith Gets Ready For Darkchild
(5/18/00, 1 p.m. ET) - The guys in Aerosmith are forging ahead with their new album -- in more ways than one. The group has contacted producers Rodney and Fred Jerkins, whose Darkchild organization has been behind huge hits for people like Brandy and Monica, and who are currently involved with the upcoming Michael Jackson album.
At Tuesday night's (May 16) BMI Awards in Los Angeles, LAUNCH spoke to Fred Jerkins, who told us about the Aerosmith project. "That's coming. I mean, we've been wanting to work with them for a while, and we just got a call, actually, about two weeks ago, so it's supposed to happen this month," he said. "So we're all excited about this one. I'm just looking for us to just give it the Darkchild sound -- our blend -- with what they do, and hopefully bring another Number One hit song out for them."

JOKERS IN THE ATTIC
By C. Bottomley
Aerosmith are back in the studio working on a new album, and they're
already getting cabin fever. Tom Hamilton, the bassist with the "Love in
an Elevator" rockers, is posting blather on the band's Web site, and
singer Steven Tyler has loaned his likeness to a bizarre animation in
which he recites a dirty limerick.
The band's follow-up to 1997's Nine Lives is, to say the least,
long-awaited. In that time fans have had to content themselves with the
Armageddon soundtrack, which featured the smash 1998 single "I Don't
Want To Miss a Thing."
Hamilton tore himself away from the recording booth long enough to let
the fans know what was going down at www.aerosmith.com. "Once again I'm
in a quandary over what to say and what not to say," he said.
At first it didn't sound like things were progressing too well. "We
spent the better part of last week in the studio but I can't really say
what for," Hamilton wrote. Then it emerged that "what for" probably
meant a new album. But the bassist said "I ain't gonna be the one who
can't keep his mouth shut."
Then, of course, Hamilton proceeded to open his mouth. "Let's just say
that the creative process is well underway up here in the cold, sloppy
Northeast. Actually the cold is just about over. This will be the first
time in a few years where we'll be home for the transition from winter
into spring. I'm ready. People keep saying it was a mild winter. I think
that's a friggin' oxymoron."
"It's been a good winter for bangin' the strings," Hamilton continued.
"No, I don't mean having sex with the violin players. I mean practicing.
Woodshedding. Schooling. You're never done. You always want to get it
better. Still looking to hear the same thing you wanted to hear when you
first started. You catch up, then it pulls away. Luckily it's a blast
and you can't get enough.
"Speaking of which... "
And with that Hamilton presumably went out to try and have sex with some
violin players. Sounds good to us. Those on the look-out for an AWOL
Hamilton should visit the site, where he reveals that back in the day
Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry would call him "Tom Hamboneltan" and that
he can make his eyeballs vibrate.
Steven Tyler is also up to some mischief. On the site's homepage an
animation features the Demon of Screamin' reciting a salty limerick. The
punch line is "With a chair and a book." Although the actual four-letter
word is tastefully bleeped, some people may be offended by Tyler's
monkey companion having a scratch in a sensitive area. More "Limericks
From Beyond the Unknown" are promised in the future.
Shortly before embarking on a January tour of Japan, Tyler told The
Hollywood Reporter that the band was making progress with songwriting.
"We have a lot of songs from the last tour and songs that I wrote when I
hurt my leg last year, including 'Innocent Man,' which we wrote with
songwriter Mark Hudson." Tyler also suggested the title of the new album
would be Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?
This was in this mornings Inside Track:
They don't Miss a Thing
Our musical spies report that the ``Gone in 60 Seconds'' music mavens asked
Aerosmith to belt out another Diane Warren tune a la the chart-busting ``I
Don't Want to Miss A Thing'' for the soon-to-be-released flick's soundtrack.
However, we hear the Bad Boys blew it off and offered up instead that
Aeroclassic, ``Back in the Saddle.''
But don't be taken aBack when you don't hear the original 1976 recording
during the Nicolas Cage-Angelina Jolie flick.
Steven Tyler & Co. re-recorded the vintage tune in Joe Perry's basement
studio some months ago. Because, of course if they used the old version,
they'd owe a king's ransom in royalty payments to Sony and ex-manager Tim
Collins. Ooh, they Bad, Bad boys!
Speaking of Aerosmith, students from the Dover-Sherborne Middle School can't
seem to Get A Grip on their readin' and writin' today after their field trip
yesterday to the fab Four Seasons.
Because while the 15 pre-teens were being led like lemmings around the haute
hotel, Steven Tyler nearly mowed them down coming out of lunch at Aujourd'hui!
``They flipped and he was fabulous with them,'' said our hotel spy. ``He
said, `OK, let's all fix our hair and take pictures.' The kids were ready to
go home after that. It was all over for them.' ''
Like, who needs to see the laundry and antique china collection after a close
encounter with a rock star???

all-time favorite bands (being an east coast native).
I’ve actually wanted to do a tribute album like this
since I founded my label six years ago. When I heard
the Not The Same Old Song And Dance tribute album I
said to myself ‘this sucks!’ and I began work on Right
in the Nuts. I wanted it to feature underground
artists who would aggressively recreate the songs of
one of America's finest rock and roll bands. From acid
to sludge to funk to punk to blues and beyond we’ve
got it all. I’m really proud of this project - great
bands doing really innovative interpretations of the

(The Melvins) with Altamont, Ed Mundel (Monster
Magnet) with Atomic Bitchwax, J.D. Pinkus (Butthole
Surfers) with Honky and Soul Clique featuring members
of the P-Funk All Stars. This double CD represents a
cross section of the most exceptional and popular
bands on the burgeoning stoner rock,
garage-punk-n-roll and straight up rock scenes in the
US and around the world. Anyone who has not yet heard
of these bands soon will.
The album art was rendered by renowned artist Mark
Dancey (Big Chief, Motorbooty Magazine). The tribute
features 27 bands covering 27 of the best - not the
most popularized - Aerosmith songs. Artists and tracks
as they appear on the double CD Right in the Nuts:
1. Fireball Ministry - "Movin Out"
2. Altamont - "Make It"
3. Scissorfight - "Lick And A Promise"

At that URL you can also download 7 of their songs including "Invisible" featuring Joe Perry, which is a very good song in my opinion.
The Sound King's web site say's the following about "Invisible":
"Invisible is the first single from our new 3 song promo CD. I have been
working with Stephen Tyler and Joe Perry of Aeromith for about a year and a
half when I decided to ask Joe to jam on the track. He and Steven listened
to our original tracks and thought the material was great!"
Lyrics for "Invisible":
I hear him talking in my head
remember everything he says
be kind to those who want to give
achieve your goals be positive
She walks in
shoots a smile across the room and sighs
'cause there's nothing left to talk about
nothing left to say but goodbye
For all the dreams we are the dreamers
for all idea we are beleivers
I come around
pick you up when your feeling down
i'll stay right here until the end
but noone else can see my best friend
Don't you believe in me
(does anybody believe)
Does anybody else believe in me
(does anybody believe)
when that road is long
everything is wrong in your life
I'll be right by your side
When mom left home dad hit the bottle
(that looks cool)
not my idea of a role model
I come to you
throw my soul upon the road, laid out
'cause there's nothing left to talk about
nothing left to say but goodbyes

Right In The Nuts
We also have the upcoming Aerosmith tribute double CD "Right In The Nuts"
due to be released on Tuesday, August 1st, 2000 on Sand Stone Records.
A New Found Glory
Also, the band "A New Found Glory" released a cover of the Diane Warren
written Aerosmith song "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" on their new album
"From The Screen To Your Stereo" on Tuesday, March 28th, 2000.
The Doors tribute album
Also, this summer is supposed to see the release of the long awaited Doors
tribute album. Now, this album will include Aerosmith covering "Love Me Two
Times." Now, their have been rumors that it might be a remixed, live, or
even new version rather than the version that Aerosmith released on the "Air
America" soundtrack album ten years ago.
Run DMC album "Crown Royal"
Now, Arista Records is saying that the new Run DMC album "Crown Royal" will
be released in the "Spring Of 2000." So, that gives them until June 19th to
release it. The album has been finished for quite some time yet legal
issues with all the guest stars on the album have delayed it MANY times.
The reason I'm saying this is that their is a rumor that Steven Tyler and
Joe Perry recorded a remake of the DMC classic "It's Tricky" and it will be
included on this album. Now, this rumor has not been shot down from EITHER
the DMC camp or the Aerosmith camp so everyone is still awaiting official
word on if the song was made or not. I think it was just a plan to record
it, and nothing ever happened...but I could be wrong.
If you want more info on this album...go here
...And if you want to see the cover of this album...go here
Various other things
Also...If the book "Be Cool" is made into a movie...the boys should do a
song for the soundtrack. Joe Perry and Jack Douglas are working on a Score
for the movie "New York Minute." There also should be a soundtrack album
for the 2002 Olympic Games which should include the "Sweet Emotion '99"
track. Also, maybe the video releases of "Goodnight Joseph Parker" and/or
Also, their are rumors that Steven Tyler will appear on a Joni Mitchell
tribute album on a song with Keith Richards. And, Steven will also make an
appearance on the "The Twisted Brown Trucker Band" debut album. And, that
Steven will appear on a song by the UK pop band "Steps." *Shiver*
Chant Down Babylon

Joe Perry performing with Bob Marley was certified Gold on Tuesday, March
Hollywood Walk Of Fame
Aero-metion on Who Wants to Be A Millionare
On the TV Show 'Who Wants to Be A Millionare' one question was "What bands drummer had to relearn after he lost his arm in a car accident." Of course the answer was Def Leppard but Aerosmith was one of the other choices!

Steven Tyler singing on Lit's new single "Over My Head" !
When visiting Glen Ballard at a studio where Ballard was working with the band Lit Steven Tyler ended up singing background vocals on the upcoming Lit single, "Over My Head." The song is the first single from the soundtrack to the upcoming animated film feature, Titan, A.E. It will go to radio in mid-May.
Read all about it in this article from Launch:
Aerosmith Frontman Gets Lit Up
(4/27/00, 3 p.m. ET) - Steven Tyler's recent visit with producer Glen Ballard in a Boston studio turned into a recording session for the Aerosmith vocalist, who added background vocals to the upcoming Lit single, "Over My Head."
Lit bassist Kevin Baldes tells LAUNCH that all that Lit lead singer A. Jay Popoff had to do was ask to make the collaboration happen. "We did a session in Boston and [Ballard] brought in Steven Tyler just to hang out and show him the song, and A. Jay said, 'Hey man, you want to do some backups on the song?' You know, just kinda kidding around, and Steven Tyler was like, 'Dude, I'd love to.' So now Steven Tyler is doing backup on and we're -- I can't even say it's a dream true. I would have never imagined Steven Tyler doing backup on a Lit song, but it happened and it's all good, so we're stoked."
The members of Lit were undoubtedly in awe of the rock legend; however, at one point during the session, they suddenly felt as if they weren't treating Tyler right. Drummer Allen Shellenberger tells LAUNCH that the band had just ordered some Thai food and Tyler, arriving late, was stuck with a less-desirable meal. "They were running late so they ordered food on the way and they ordered pizza, and when we sat down at the dinner table I was sitting right next to Steven and, like, I look over and I have this nice, you know, big Thai food dinner and he's got, like a slice of pepperoni pizza, and I'm like, 'Wait this just is not adding up here. And I go, 'Hey Steve, you want some of my Thai food?' and he's like, 'Yeah man, sure,'"
"Over My Head" is the first single from the soundtrack to the upcoming animated film feature, Titan, A.E. It will go to radio in mid-May. The soundtrack also features cuts by Powerman 5000, Texas, and the Urge. Ballard is the executive producer on the project.
