Steven Tyler says he's got "the itch" to do a solo record.

He tells Rolling Stone Joe Perry has done four solo albums and Tyler never has because he mostly gets out his artistic feelings through Aerosmith. However, Tyler says, "My heart is in stuff like that weirder, off-the-cuff stuff that I'm not sure Aerosmith would like."

Tyler mentions Skrillex and Deadmaus as artists he'd love to work with. He says Aerosmith will always be around but he wants to scratch that itch. He plans to start work in January and see how far he gets by March.
