Some some incredible -- I'm looking at the track listing for this album. Yeah real musicians just to kind of make sure that the music is right when you got baseball players like Daniel Bard trying to play guitar on songs. Yeah yeah yeah. There's assure it of the future and real that they Robinson about some heavy hitters out that it is great accent that's you know an accent that's -- -- -- -- track. And actually -- I don't know that I and it Norton. Two vocal in the background vocal you know as a reference and they kept themselves. You know we in -- spoke.

And you know it's everybody from John butchered it Peter -- and -- Kenny Kasey and Jerry Remy I mean it's all over the place but. Don't like Clay Buchholz David Ortiz I mean there's some serious heavy hitters on their Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Part upon. Reverend that's my answer at the -- Hey I write about my theory or their. Our musicians wanna be famous athletes in all famous athletes wannabe musicians. Without a doubt without a doubt no question about it like it the fact it's suit up in math and Celtics Green -- traded all of I traded -- Would that be the team out of all the bigs Boston sports teams you wanna play ball the Celtics I. If you could just run a -- and get your way. I couldn't skate to shoot my wife and a I don't know you know. I mean it's not so football baseball bat well basketball but I -- who I will play and so are. Yeah now I am I I don't pretend that but I can play they can play at all. -- you to go and do a lot of things in in town and be apart of a lot of things have you been able to go shoot hoops on the parquet. The governor did sing I am. I did sing the national and it's probably the most electrifying performance in my life. There was the last games Jordan came in to arrogant self excuse on the wizards and I was with my brother and I. Man collapsed in my premise that -- You know don't embarrass the family. The family note pressure. As yet -- I can't say it was -- and I'll never do it again. A registered are also got some apartheid in sing the national -- the but it connects to do you know fox borrow. And we actually have we're gonna that we were gonna do something it's certainly part but I don't think. I think it still might happen. This year. At a yankees game now. Now I mean you know to -- the national actually stop the outlook and he can heat and drought and are. Right there is some amazing. National Anthem performances I mean everybody talks about Whitney Houston at the super ball. And then there of ten times where people we have forgot the words change the words and people are ready to just burn them an effigy or do you have. Do you feel like a got to the best that you've ever seen besides like Whitney which everybody I guess considers to be the gold standard. Yeah -- you know are now that it is the proper the American Idol L. I want supplements start some of shame you know my first thought was wrote embark. You ready to put her in jail over that all of that the first district without skirted right you know so you correct. Yeah what accounts combined. I don't know you know again. I'm sure Barack Christina Aguilera did a great job one of those aspects -- -- -- the last yeah she did it. And now and it it always is how can screw up the words everybody knows -- I guess when you're out there and everybody's staring at you. -- you -- you know I -- I would cram and I mean you're -- your whole life but then when you're out there. -- is useful I was worried I was gonna start it's it's it's difficult song start -- came in and screw itself. And I got locked into my brother. Controller predicated that vote of confidence. Is more -- sing the anthem and -- throw out the first pitch saying thank you. I got a good start out and -- -- yeah I absolutely no problem. I didn't throw -- the first well -- The problem is filled with. You know great covers and original staff I mean it's it's pretty cool and and the money goes the Red Sox foundation which. You know always does such amazing work -- a multitude of charities. Absolutely. Not it's just great to be a part of it it's -- a part of what's is that the Red Sox history. Thing you know being on the same records and great great artists and everybody's doing that same -- You know the pleasure to be asked to do -- I did I started out doing my best for a basic for them as its current now consult like that. I think in rock and roll your fortunate when you have a voice that no one else can imitate 'cause it's just yours I think you have one of those voices to of the decision here people know exactly who witness. Well thank. I'm Erica terrific -- so you're. He's. Is always unique and it actually is is always saying is racing you know that some. You know those first took our record every song it. You know want to ask you. Now I gave Steven Tyler a lot of crap and if you are here right now I would apologize about the American final decision. As it turned out to be a huge positive but I thought it was gonna -- If somebody can't you when asked to be a judge on one of those shows would you do it. Probably not I wouldn't not the not for any other reason it's just. You know I -- -- I would -- what it could -- you know -- That -- character you know. She's. You know I would. You know I mean her. Certainly you're you know the -- extremely better keep an onstage. -- run out of things to say and that and I think I would start the run out of things to. Plus why there's like a hot almost underage girl on the stage he'll find something offensive to say to somebody yeah. I -- -- you know. I don't see myself -- -- Batman jumping at a pool and he sat there yeah probably not actually not Fred. Yeah very difficult I I don't I don't knock them it's actually. First. I don't know there was this interview on sixty minutes and it seemed like Joseph Perry in the port -- we're very happy with that to. All know they pest until all of a sudden their record sales and up like 200% and what are they gonna do bitch she can't now without it absolutely. Yeah absolutely. So extreme without Russia you guys are back now what's going on his you know go on back now with Rihanna are you gonna keep -- in the states and go back out on the road this summer. All we're doing. You know we just we -- Japan don't get Russia we get we have China for the first -- in markets that we've never played a China in June. We have South America which we haven't. Played in over twenty years. America is not -- yet we want to do it you know it's still still you know the playing guitar with Rihanna. Which which I don't aquae. To the pressure of singing the National Anthem at the garden trying to concentrate on your instrument when you have to -- Rihanna has asked for a couple hours today. I would think that would be just -- difficult to concentrate I think spell. Our thanks so she got a great gaffes. Yes you look -- -- and got the that a lot of Brett I don't -- -- but I think it's prime I think it's tiny it's not -- -- comeback in the and there -- record so that's that's -- -- -- or producer recording and it's. A terrorist because harassment going out with Cheap Trick and with a great deal. -- that would have banned they're and that's all that's going to be great show yeah it is it's going to be on some train our culture they need to know. -- and it's one of my favorites. I just wanna hear the new harassment that stated we're supposed to get the song in three weeks now. Let me just say yes there's pressure right -- -- -- are deliberate. Yeah they had with some of it some not so much some of the you know I I went to the show at the garden it was interesting. Yeah yeah I think it you know I think I certainly delivered big game Arctic air gave. They. A Paper record you know -- are. That -- type record and Eddie Eddie seems to be playing better than Clayton. And in years so. Yes and I think there's more pressure on Aerosmith because of Steven Tyler's platform now. Sure there's a hell -- a lot more people paying attention. Well I don't wanna hear another crazy you're amazing I wanna -- freaking out our -- -- -- -- yeah I'd look I want tickets are yet. I think that whoever they get what checked out of a sound producing right. Yeah hiding so yeah so they they pushed the album back to September more supposed to get signed a three weeks on the same Brooklyn area. Yeah so we'll know sooner than later that's for sure now I think. Yeah I I hope so I -- so I'm sure we'll hear some of the new stuff on that harassment Cheap Trick -- you. Are yeah sure some sort of play it simple but that's yeah that's not their support for extreme. And now we're we're excited we're actually the the Russians. The Russian -- or so away we we had no idea what are in -- in China in October to have some promo. And it's so funny when we're in the wall fell in 91. When the -- so we were fortunate enough to be one of the bands. That work you know that that was. You know one more award blew up so there's a whole generation. Who listened to a string. And some of those countries so we knew we were fortunate that you know have some success at that time so. Or -- -- in places we've never had before. Yeah and you're getting to go and walk around in places that you and I growing up. Work I mean you know you're walking through like the enemies backyard I mean we were raised to -- all big bad Russia and and they -- to blow air into our and it's you know. -- it's it's it's wild and itself so we were were brought through like shopping area going visited Red Square in other cathedrals some. The Kremlin and some of those buildings in and in the history just walking through history. But then you go through this you know shopping plaza area and and CIBC free market all over the place in and Russian. You know and in the rationale for that Dunkin' Donuts McDonald's. And regard. Yes capitalism at its side yeah. Vodka by the way -- -- -- we we that we did it. And we ask. Quite a few people -- About what's the best spot in Russia and for some strange reason no one would tell -- and he. We thought they wouldn't tell us because the government you don't all you know its its its act it actually like. They sound like they were afraid to help sort of that's popular as they hit shots. That it's not the government. So we acquit itself. It's great we that we get a lot of press there. And the fans -- the they had they had the they have this CDs they were young. They were just crazy and European crowd in and out. I'm from back there and here. -- -- real let me know if this Fenway thing comes together this season because I would love to be tennesseans are I don't catch our church -- -- hey listen and I was a catch her for last two league softball for nine years she wanted to squat behind the plate podium there are.
