Brad Whitford Talks Summer Vacation Without Aerosmith


Credit: David BeanAerosmith rhythm guitarist Brad Whitford and former Ted Nugent singer Derek St. Holmes are heading out on the road with Whitesnake next month in support of their new collaboration, Reunion.

With Whitford on the road this summer and Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler supporting his solo effort — where does that leave Aerosmith?

“I really don’t know. There are a lot of musical ideas floating around as Joe [Perry] has a bunch,” Whitford told MetalRules.com. “It’s just a matter of us getting together and developing it and whether that’s going to happen we just have to wait and see.”

With Tyler busy, Whitford admitted the band considered touring with a guest vocalist. On his wish list? Myles Kennedy or Axl Rose.

“We had a bunch of people a while ago like Sammy Hagar,” he said. “It would be a lot of fun.”

In the meantime, Whitford is itching to get on the road and play the new tracks off Reunion this summer.

“Oh totally, it’s like going on a vacation,” he said. “Derek and I work well together and always have. It’s so different than Aerosmith’s process.”
