Joe Perry making instrumental album


Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has revealed he’s working on a solo album that’s set to be mainly instrumental.

And he describes the follow-up to 2009’s Have Guitar Will Travel as a diverse work.

Perry says: “Been in the studio working on my solo instrumental CD. I began when writing Rocks, my autobiography, but didn’t have enough time.”

Asked about the musical style he’s pursued, he replies: “It’ll have diversity. Maybe one or two songs with me singing, or another singer, but mainly it’ll be an instrumental album.”

Aerosmith remain undecided on whether to record a follow-up to 2012 record Music From Another Dimension, while frontman Steven Tyler continues work on his debut solo release, which has a country music theme.

Perry and his colleagues in supergroup Hollywood Vampires are the cover stars of the latest edition of Classic Rock, on sale now in print, digital and via TeamRock+.
