Photo Flash: AEROSMITH Blows the Roof Off Staples Center
They came, they conquered. AEROSMITH blew the roof off of Staples Center in Los Angeles this past Monday (December 3). The fever pitch intensified when Steven Tyler (vocals), Joe Perry (guitar), Brad Whitford (guitar), Tom Hamilton (bass) andJoey Kramer (drums) were joined onstage by their MUSIC FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION! guitar-slinging guest star Johnny Depp for two songs (AEROSMITH’s version of the classic “Stop Messin’ Around” from their 2004 Honkin' on Bobo album and The Beatles’ “Come Together” which AEROSMITH recorded for the soundtrack of the 1978 film Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band in which the band also appeared). Former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Izzy Stradlin also sat in with AEROSMITH on a high-octane version of the band’s classic “Mama Kin,” a song Stradlin’s former band covered. Check out photos below!

The album was recorded in Los Angeles and at the band’s studio in Massachusetts; it was produced by Jack Douglas, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, with the exception of three tracks produced by Tyler and Marti Frederiksen.
