John Gerome of The Associated Press reports caught up with Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry for a Q&A and was asked why he released another solo album, with his three previous solo efforts being dropped while he had left the band in 1979. “This one was done for totally different reasons,” Perry said. “I have no intention of leaving Aerosmith or anything like that. There was such a surplus of tunes lying around. I was getting tired of hearing them. It got to the point that I thought ‘When is this stuff ever going to come out? Will it become a box set for my kids to put out?’ I had a year off, and I just decided to do it.” The full story at Yahoo.com has since been removed.
