Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford doesn't foresee the band returning to the studio any time soon. Aerosmith resumes its Las Vegas “Deuces Are Wild” residency at Dolby Live at Park MGM, beginning June 17th, with a total of 24 dates played before the end of 2022.
During a chat with Classic Rock magazine, Whitford was asked if there were plans to record a followup to 2012's Music From Another Dimension: “Unfortunately, no. I’ve made some efforts to get the band back into the studio, and for whatever reason it just doesn’t work out. In Las Vegas there was a studio right across the street, but (the creative process) can’t be forced. The light switch has to come on. I’d like to think it could still happen, but right now it just hasn’t.”
With Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, and Joey Kramer all having published memoirs about their time in Aerosmith, Brad Whitford was asked if he's ever thought about doing the same, and admitted, “I’ve given that subject a lot of thought, but how do I tell the same story in a different way? I won’t just regurgitate what people have already read. I do have a concept in mind, a more personal approach that would involve my growing up and also talking to some of the people who helped with our success.”
