On Saturday, October 19th, Phil Soussan is bringing a blend of his original music as featured on his two CDs (No Protection and Vibrate) along with songs made famous from the list of rock bands he has written and performed with. This scheduled show may be the first of many that will highlight a rotation of friends that bring their unique talents to the stage. Soussan has mentioned, "There will be friends joining us on stage throughout the night, you don't know who will show up; but that's the surprise of it."

On stage performing with Soussan will be Howie Simon on guitar (Alcatrazz), Dave Filice on bass (Bono & The Edge) and virtuoso drummer Andy Sanesi (Zappa) with Soussan playing guitar and singing. Special guests have not been publically announced, but there have been assurances that they are going to be great.

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.
