Aerosmith scrap future album plans

1 of 1 Aerosmith

Veteran rockers Aerosmith say they see "almost no reason" to ever make another album and scrapped plans for a follow-up to 2012's Music from Another Dimension.

"It would be great to make another record, but it's almost, why bother?" drummer Joey Kramer told Ultimate Classic Rock magazine.

"Records don't sell, and they don't do anything . . . There's almost no reason to do it, you know, judging from the last one and how it went over."

Kramer concurred with current industry thinking and said that the real money in the music is in touring. "We used to make a lot of money on records," he said. "Now all of our money is made on touring."

"Music now is so disposable . . . We're not the Justin Biebers and the Nicki Minajs of the world, so unfortunately, records don't make sense."
