Rock Report: Slash Contributes To New Aerosmith Album
The booklet for the new Aerosmith album, Music From Another Dimension, features a drawing of the band that Slash did when he was 13. Steven Tyler says he saw the sketch in a Los Angeles deli and offered to buy it, but to no avail. But, apparently the owner of the piece decided to license it as it is now part of the packaging. Music From Another Dimension comes out November 6th.
At one point, Slash owned Joe Perry's 1959 Les Paul. He says, "Apparently it had been stolen from Joe Perry and sold a few times before someone called me and asked if I was interested in buying it. Once I found out it was the real thing, I bought it. Anyway, I kept it for a long time; but I knew that Joe really loved that guitar probably as much as I did. So I gave it to him for his birthday in 2000."
