Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford’s son Zack recently uploaded a photo of Steven Tyler backstage with Haley Reinhart flipping off the camera in Illinois.

Aerosmith members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford discussed using additional instrumentation for their ‘Deuces Are Wild’ Las Vegas shows in a new Guitar Player interview.
Whitford said, “We’re trying to be fairly faithful to how the songs were originally recorded. And we do have a number of songs that have horn parts in them. Most of those songs are probably some of the more popular tracks, like Rag Doll, Dude (Looks Like a Lady) and Same Old Song and Dance. Even going back to the first album, there’s a saxophone on Mama Kin. As for strings, I don’t know that we actually used real strings on the first record, but we’re using them onstage for Dream On, and then also for songs like I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.
Perry added, We wanted to give the fans a glimpse of what it would have been like to be in the studio when we recorded some of these songs. And like Brad said, there are a lot of horns on Aerosmith songs. But we’ve never brought horns on the road. So we were thinking, Let’s play the songs as close to ‘just right’ as we can get them. We said, ‘That’ll be something!’ We didn’t know what! [laughs] But we’re finding out.”
