Has Aerosmith Still Got It?

Friction within Aerosmith is hardly news, but the acrimony over Steven Tyler's substance abuse relapse and decision to give a gig judging American Idol wannabes priority over recording a new Aerosmith album and touring once he'd recovered pushed one of the steadiest line-ups in Rock history to the brink of a real permanent vacation.  Next month the group will reconvene in the studio to try and knock-out a new record before heading to South America to resume touring together. 
The album will be the group's first studio album in 7 years. Only one song on the 2004 album, Honkin' With BoBo, was an Aerosmith original.  Fans may not be the only ones wondering whether Boston's Bad Boys still have it.  That may be why the group has brought veteran producer Jack Douglas in to work on what will be the band's 15th studio album.  The Douglas era of Aerosmith albums began with Get Your Wings and included Toys In The Attic and Rocks.
