On Saturday, Steven Tyler participated in the finale of the latest Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp installment, which took place at the famous Playboy Mansion in Hollywood. Surprisingly, Aerosmith's flamboyant frontman says he'd never visited Hugh Hefner's hedonistic hideaway before.
"I was too busy in someone's bathroom getting high," Tyler explains to Rolling Stone. "I was too busy on tour, I was too busy writing songs. We were just busy."
Meanwhile, in an exclusive interview with ABC News Radio at the event, Tyler reveals some details about the new Aerosmith video, which the group spent 12 hours shooting on Friday.
The raucous rocker reports that the clip is for the band's new song "Legendary Child," which will appear on the soundtrack to the upcoming action adventure film G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
"It's gonna be slammin'," Tyler says of the track. "[Guitarist] Joe [Perry] was on fire. Wait, you'll see."
"Legendary Child" is a new version of a tune originally recorded during the sessions for Aerosmith's 1991 album, Get a Grip. Tyler says he felt it was a good song to contribute to G.I. Joe because its theme of the band struggling to overcome adversity in the music industry mirrored the battle the movie's heroes had against their own nemesis.
"G.I. Joe [is] about about deep space and 'let's go fight the foe,'" he points out. "And then I thought about where the band came from, and going [into] the music business. If there ever…was a foe, the music business was. So to be successful you had to learn how to climb ladders, jump through hoops and live through burning houses."
G.I. Joe: Retaliation hits theaters on June 29.
