Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has leaked a photo of The Beatles reuniting, with surviving members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr taking the stage together in Los Angeles at Dodger Stadium.
“‘GOOD ON YA’ @RINGOSTARRMUSIC FOR THOSE TWO SONGS. YOU ALWAYS GOT THERE FIRST ANYWAY!!! ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE AND YOU GOT THAT FROM ME… ST.”
John Lennon and George Harrison are sadly gone, but were felt in spirit. Another legend who is gone is Johnny Thunders, and Joe Perry discussed covering “You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory” in a new Consequence of Sound interview.
“There’s certain parts of the lyrics that really touch home, but the main thing to me is that I miss Johnny. He passed away way to early… When Aerosmith went to New York and got signed, [Thunders’ band The New York Dolls] were signed to the same management company a week earlier. So we kind of came up together in those early months.
I always saw them as kind of like our New York brothers, and I’m still friends with [singer] David Johansen, and he actually sang on my last solo record. Johnny was a good friend, but he had another path, and unfortunately he left too soon, so I really felt it was appropriate for me to sing that song.”
