Lara Logan of CBS will air a profile of Aerosmith on 60 Minutes next Sunday, March 11 at 7 p.m. ET. Lara interviewed the band on their last tour and some of that footage will be included in the piece.
Aerosmith is actively recording and apparently the new stuff sounds just like Rocks-era Aerosmith. If this is true, I'll be over the moon. Rocks is my favorite album of all time and while I don't believe lighting strikes twice (yes, I just made an Aerosmith pun), I do believe the Bad Boys of Boston + producer Jack Douglas have what it takes (another pun!) to knock it out of the park record-wise once again.
Aerosmith is supposed to tour starting in June. I'm really hoping the 60 Minutes special will lead to the official tour announcement with dates. I want to plan a trip around an Aerosmith show so I'm hoping for some cool cities to choose from... and quite frankly, the sooner the better.
