Aerosmith's Brad Whitford: 'We Missed the Mark With Our Last Album'
Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford has been musing on the band's most recent album, "Music From Another Dimension," Classic Rock reports. The record, that was released last year, was the band’s first album of original material since 2001's "Just Push Play." Looking back on it, however, Whitford feels that the band could have done better: "We have a lot of issues with the last record now. We feel like we missed the mark a little bit. I'm not quite sure what we would have done differently, but we feel like we should have done something. "I don't know if the material really translated. Maybe we're a little bit stuck in the way we do things; we kind of did it old-school and thought we were going in the right direction. But I don't know." He also notes that the band might try a different creative approach with their next album: "We still have a lot of creative juices flowing. Maybe we’ll experiment a bit more in the writing process. Maybe we need to bring in some more contemporary people to work with, and maybe take a few twists and turns. I don't know." What do you think? Do Aerosmith need to step up their game, or is Whitford being a bit hard on the band? Let us know in the comments.
