This time Greg Walker (bass and vocals) and Charlie Hargrett (lead guitar) called former Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist/vocalist Mike Estes who, along with new drummer Kurt Pietro, had played with them on various all-star gigs all over the USA. This line-up is currently tearing it up!

Mike Estes exclusively told "It's gonna be great to play towns in the UK we missed last tour. We took some heat from fans for not having a London gig booked last time. So we're gonna do one in town at the Academy and another on the south side near Bromley. Can't wait to come over!"

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
