Steven Tyler’s debut country album, We’re All Somebody from Somewhere, features a stripped-down, acoustic version of Aerosmith’s hit “Janie’s Got a Gun.”
As it turns out, the three remaining members of Stone Temple Pilots — guitarist Dean DeLeo, bassist Robert DeLeo and drummer Eric Kretz — provided the music on the countrified tune.
On their Facebook page STP has shared photos from their studio session with Tyler. “What a beautiful day we all had in the studio,” the band writes in the caption. “Steven is electric. No one better!!! Fer real!!! Hope ya dig the track.”
Stone Temple Pilots, meanwhile, are currently looking for a new lead singer. With Aerosmith possibly wrapping things up with a final tour next year, perhaps Tyler could take up the STP mantle and form Steven Temple Pilots. They wouldn’t even need to change the acronym.
