Aerosmith: 'records don't make sense'

Aerosmith see "almost no reason" to ever make another album. The band's drummer has revealed that the group have given up plans for a follow-up to 2012's Music from Another Dimension, claiming that there's not enough money for records to "make sense".

"It would be great to make another record, but it's almost, why bother?" Joey Kramer told Ultimate Classic Rock magazine. "Records don't sell, and they don't do anything … There's almost no reason to do it, you know, judging from the last one and how it went over."

Music from Another Dimension was the lowest-selling album of Aerosmith's career, peaking at No 5 in the US and No 14 in the UK. But Kramer says it's "a really good record" that's "[still] going to be played 20 years from now". "Certain things held it back," he said, suggesting the poor state of the music industry affected the success of the album.

"We used to make a lot of money on records," Kramer explained. "Now all of our money is made on touring." And although "artistically, it would be fun to make another record", "to what avail?" he asked. "Music now is so disposable … We're not the Justin Biebers and the Nicki Minajs of the world, so unfortunately, records don't make sense."

Aerosmith are among the bestselling bands of all time.

Toys in the Attic and Rocks are excellent rock records. Shut your whore mouth.

The reason their last album didn't sell was because it was a giant piece of shit. Any subsequent records they release will also fail to sell because they are giant pieces of shit. It's sad that they're deluding themselves into thinking otherwise.

Well, I can totally agree with this sentiment.

Aerosmith has a handful of songs I like. They have aged worse than just about anyone out there, though, both physically and musically.

Beginning in the MTV era with the Run DMC collab/reunion of Perry/Tyler, I've always thought of them as a little 'mid life crisis' 40-something man at the bar trying to pick up college aged chicks - even back when I was a teen in the days of Permanent Vacation and Pump (late 80's). So for 30 years, yeah, they have been a "cheesefest".

But in the 70's, while highly derivative of Zeppelin (though derivative is the name of the game in B&C, so that should be theoretically acceptable enough around here) they were damn good in the music and what mattera more than that? Certainly not all of it, (too much bluesy crap for me) but they had some great songs. Here are 10 (in no order):

Dream On, Last Child, Train Kept A Rollin', Sweet Emotion, Nobody's Fault, Draw The Line, Kings and Queens, Same Old Song and Dance and my personal favorite - No More, No More.

I believe every single one of these songs came out before 1978/79.

As for the sentiment...fucking indicative of everything wrong with the music industry but especially heinous coming from a rock band. Then again, they've been outsourcing their songwriting for years. Besides this, who really gives a fuck what this band thinks? They couldn't be less relevant, even as a 'legacy act', I'd guess they make less impression on the 20-something and under crowd than a shit ton of artists that have been around 30-40 years.
