Below are news listings
from various sources. The latest news is listed at the top.
If you hear of any Aerosmith news send it my way. I will post it here.
Steven, Joe and the Sopranos
Steven and Joe attended a male cast bash for the
upcoming season of HBO's, The Sopranos. Former Aerosmith producer, Jack Douglas,
who is working on the soundtrack of the hit series, invited huge fans of the
show, Steven and Joe, to Foxwood Casino in Connecticut for the pre-season bash.
Steven and Joe had a few laughs with James Gandolfini, a.k.a, Tony Soprano and
the rest of the cast - Italian style! After the dinner party and watching the
premiere of the upcoming season, everyone went to watch Prince Hamed, the
undefeated featherweight champion, square off with Augie Sanchez, in a brutal
4th round K.O. in Mashantucket, CT. No word yet if the Boston Boys will appear
on the soundtrack, but stay tuned to AF1, as we will bring you the latest
"Hello Mr. President, I'd Like You To Meet My Husband..."
Brad Whitford had a recent run-in with the President of the United States at a fundraiser in Nantucket. Brad and his wife, Karen, were invited to the fundraiser and Karen, who was first to meet the President, introduced the Boston Bad Boy - "Hello Mr. President, I'd like you to meet my husband Brad…" in which the President replied "I know who he is!" Looks like the President knows how to rock 'n' roll after all.

Joe Perry & Yankee Grey
Last night Eli Zoske (the person who sent me the info that Joe played on the album) went to a Yankee Grey concert and after the show he asked one of the band members how they got Joe to record with them...
Their guitarist Matt Basford, who was the band member he talked with, said that Billie is Jerry Hughes' cousin. So when they were recording, Joe was in town and agreed to do it! Basford also said he's always been a huge Aero-fan and it was incredible to meet the guys.
Also, he said they're going to try to get Joe to play on the next album as well, so keep an eye out for that!

Cyrinda Foxe website
What upsets me though is that she says she will show those pics that Steven didn't want her to have in her book. Is this woman completely insane or what? Fortunately those pics are not up, atleast not now...

Aerosmith tribute faithful to originals
By KIERAN GRANT -- Toronto Sun
This week, a few toys for the attic.
Right In The Nuts: A Tribute To Aerosmith (Small Stone)
*** (out of five)
Remember that old clich about how everyone who bought The Velvet Underground's records in the '60s went on to form bands in the '70s?
Well, this double CD, put out by the rock-addled heads at Detroit's Small Stone label, is like that in reverse -- a through-the-looking-glass glimpse of what happens when fans of a massive band like Aerosmith grow up and go underground.
In the spirit of a punk-rock tribute, virtually all of the bands on Right In The Nuts are relatively unknown, which means there's no room for pointless star-turns or revolving-door musical treatments. Instead, the cream of the U.S. underground hard-rock scene is assembled for burbling blasts of guitar-skronk that are as curiously faithful to the originals as they are sleazy -- which, when you think about it, is what made the originals great in the first place.
The double-album format means there's lots of room for error, and a few bands sound so caught up in their memories of teen lust that their tunes turn to mush.
There are plenty of kicks to make the ride worthwhile. Five Horse Johnson's Bright Light Fright sounds like southern-fried Lemmy; Electric Frankenstein's big, chugging Sick As A Dog; Drunk Horse turn swagger into stagger with Kings And Queens; Men Of Porn's wonky, lurching Lightning Strikes.
But the real ace in the hole belongs to Man's Ruin signees Alabama Thunderpussy, who best capture the spirit of the comp with Sweet Emotion, a calamitous collision of riff-rock, boogie and buzzing noise.
This CD is equally suited for afternoons working on the van and evenings working on the beer.
Recommended for fans of: Black Sabbath, Ted Nugent, AC/DC circa Jailbreak, Motorhead. Fans of latter-day Aerosmith are strongly cautioned.

Drunk Horse play the El Mocambo Monday with locals Tchort
and The Fangs. Alabama Thunderpussy are at the El Mo Sept. 3.
