Aerosmith: Steven Tyler and Joe Perry talk American Idol

Aerosmith continue to make the rounds doing interviews to promote the band’s November 6 release of “Music From Another Dimension.”

Aerosmith’s 15th studio album – and first of all-new material in 11 years – 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.

On Monday, frontman Steven Tyler and guitarist Joe Perry were featured on ABC’s Good Morning America, where the two discussed the new project…and some of the tension created by Tyler’s decision to join American Idol two years ago.

"It was the biggest show on TV,” explained Tyler. “And every night millions of people got to see that big-lipped, singer guy from Aerosmith sing up there, you know, being what he is. And it didn't hurt Aerosmith. They were a little jealous in the beginning that I took it. I didn’t tell them I did."

“Well, speak for yourself, because I wasn’t jealous,”
interjected Perry.

“You were the first one to go to the press and say it sucks like [Teenage Mutant] Ninja Turtles,” responded the singer.

"No, I was upset because I had to read about it in the press,” replied Perry. “That was it. But I wasn't jealous you were on the show; I was glad you were on the show."

On November 8 – two days after the new album is released – Aerosmith kick off the second leg of "The Global Warming Tour" with guests Cheap Trick.
