Stephen King could have worked with Aerosmith

Stephen King could have written lyrics for Aerosmith if the band's producer had his way.
Steven Taylor is the frontman
Aerosmith could have moved into a new, darker direction if the band's record producer had persuaded them to let Stephen King pen lyrics for them.

Jack Douglas told Classic Rock that he tried to convince the elder statesmen of rock to consider using the renowned horror writer in a move that could have changed everything.

However, the consummate music professionals were having none of it – this isn't the way they like to work.

Douglas had believed that King could motivate frontman Steven Tyler to explore hidden new depths.

"They looked at me like I was crazy," Douglas told the magazine. "I said I'm serious. I there's anybody who's going to inspire him, it'd be King."

He added that the way King works is that he doesn't need a melody to get him writing songs – he needs a person to help him do that.

Aerosmith revealed last year they had been working on a new studio album, which is due to be released later this year.

It will be their first record since 2004s Honkin' On Bobo.
