NEW YORK (June 21, 2013)—Aerosmith’s front man Steven Tyler says he's got "the itch" to do a solo record, telling Rolling Stone that Joe Perry has recorded four solo albums and he never has because he mostly gets out his artistic feelings through Aerosmith.
But, Tyler says, "My heart is in stuff like that weirder, off-the-cuff stuff that I'm not sure Aerosmith would like."
Tyler mentioned Skrillex and Deadmaus as artists he'd love to work with.
Aerosmith will always be around, he said, but he wants to scratch that itch.
He plans to start work in January and see how far he gets by March.
