Aerosmith CD Artwork by Slash
The new CD by rockers Aerosmith, Music From Another Dimension, includes artwork by Slash, of Guns N’ Roses fame. Slash was a big fan of the band and created the drawing when he was only 13 years old. During an interview of Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler & Joe Perry on Great Britain’s The Jonathan Ross Show, Tyler describes how he first saw the drawing in a Los Angeles deli during their recording sessions for the album. He says that he tried to buy the drawing, but the owner wouldn’t sell it. However, he was able to use the drawing for the CD.
A video of the interview is posted below. The discussion of the artwork comes at about the 7 minute mark.
Steven Tyler is himself an artist. He began showing and selling his artwork about 5 years ago. Read more about Steven Tyler’s artwork at the following link: Artwork by Rocker Steven Tyler.
