LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-MARCH 6, 2019…EIGHTEEN YEARS AGO AEROSMITH RELEASED THE ALBUM ‘JUST PUSH PLAY’.
THIS WAS THE FIRST ALBUM STEVEN TYLER PERRY AND JOE PERRY PRODUCED THEMSELVES. THEY WROTE THE RECORD AND RECORDED IT AT PERRY’S HOME STUDIO ‘THE BONEYARD’ .
DESPITE THE FACT THAT JOE PERRY PLAYED SUCH AND IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE MAKING OF THE ALBUM, PERRY HAS SAID:
“Just Push Play is my least favorite (album). When we recorded it there was never a point where all five members were in the room at the same time and Aerosmith’s major strength is playing together. It was a learning experience for me: it showed me how not to make an Aerosmith record”.
‘JUST PUSH PLAY’ WAS NOMINATED FOR 3 GRAMMY AWARDS IN 2001, INCLUDING “BEST ROCK ALBUM”
