Joe Perry Says He's 'Halfway Through' Next Solo Album

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry says that he is about halfway done with his next solo album.

Perry says that while he isn't entirely sure what's next for Aerosmith, he knows a main focus of his is his solo work.

"I really don't know what's coming up next," Perry tells ARTISTDirect. "I think we should stick to our guns and keep making records . and promote them our own way. I know [singer Steven Tyler] wants to do a solo record. I'm halfway through a solo album right now. I've got about six songs I'm really excited about. I want to get into them as soon as possible. That's the main focus now."

Perry adds that he is also focused on his new book Rocks: My Life In and Out of Aerosmith.
