  • Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K. 2.
      Last summer there was a rumour that Aerosmith were to have a song on the "Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K. 2." soundtrack. Well, in the latest issue of Heavy Metal there was an ad for the soundtrack.

  • In Food Today
      On FoodTV today they showed the In Food episode that mentioned Our Boys. Chef/owner Greg Morton of the Bridge Street Cafe in South Dartmouth, Mass demonstrated one of his famous dishes, Sole Veronique. It's a classic French dish with grapes and a champagne cream sauce, for all you food buffs out there. He said that it was a favorite of Joe's (Mr. Perry as he called him), and that Steven didn't usually eat too much before his went on stage. Apparently, this guy is a bass player in a local band, in addition to being a chef. He must have traveled with the Guys, because he made reference to cooking for them while they were on the road in Florida. Or maybe he owns another restaurant in FLA? If you're at all interested in the recipe, go to:

  • News from
      As expected, there is no title nor producer decided for the next album. What they do have is a couple of songs, and they will start writing more when they get their equipment back from Japan.

      We thought you might appreciate an update regarding the new album. Asst. Tour Manager John Bionelli called our offices after getting back from Japan to let us know how the new album is going. Contrary to what's been reported, the album has not been named, and there is no producer confirmed for the project. What can be said is that the band has a bunch of songs under their belts ready to go, and are looking forward to writing a bunch more when their equipment returns on a slow boat from Japan after just completing the "Roar of the Dragon" tour. John promises to call in with updates, so stay tuned to AF1 for more details!
