Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton can add “lyricist” tom his long line of talents. The band’s first collection of all-new music in 11 years, called, Music From Another Dimension, will be released on November 6th, and features the tune “Tell Me” — which Hamilton wrote the lyrics to. He spoke about the song to Rolling Stone, explaining, “I had these chord changes, and I thought maybe I could try writing lyrics. . . It was a whole new experience for me. The song is about lost love, but I’ve been married since I was 25-years-old. My wife goes, ‘What the hell do you know about that?’ I was just evoking a feeling I had when I was a kid listening to the Beatles and the (Rolling) Stones — I always loved their lonely sounding songs.”

Hamilton says that successfully battling cancer gave him a new appreciation for life: “Y’know, one of the ironic things is that, and it’s kind of a cliche, y’know, about the little things in life, but I’m constantly noticing little pleasures like that. And because — y’know, I’m pretty sure I’m cool, but you never know, you might go in there and they’ll say, ‘Oh, there’s some kind of trouble going on,’ so you really do put a priority on enjoying the stuff that’s right in front of you.”
