M usic from Another Dimension!, Newest Aerosmith release, has been a long time coming. For material on this much-anticipated pro-ject, band invited principal colleague, Marti Frederiksen, to co-write five songs and to produce three Of tracks. The Southern California native notes that it takes time for this band to assemble machine. It was hard to get material out, he say, getting all of those guys together on full record. But once they do, they really focus. One Song that Frederiksen helped pen, What Could Have Been Love, has elements in its arrangement that resemble contemporary country radio. That song has been around, say Frederiksen. Joe Perry put B-bender on it to make it sound more country. Now living in Nashville, TN, Frederiksen has penned songs for Rascal Flatts and Carrie Underwood, who also duets with vocalist Steven Tyler on Cant Stop Loving You, from the new Aerosmith album. Carrie has songs coming as singles, he say, and the only reason that theyre country is that theyre pushing that format. Pop is so programmed. What makes something country is when real players are on track. Although he and his partners own Westwood Studios, full-On Nashville tracking room, he is not participant in Music Citys circles of multiple daily co-writes. I am not a guy who has to book writing session every day, he confirm. Best known for his work with hard rockers, from Def Leppard to Daughtry, Frederiksen provided voice for the lead singer of mythical band Stillwater in Cameron Crowes ' rock epic, Almost Famous. Cameron do it right, this being his story, say Frederiksen. And Nancy Wilson, really lived in that era. Born in Hawthorne, CA, Frederiksen played drums in local bands before diving into the Hollywood music scene in the early 80s. In 1983, he landed on Geffen Records as drummer for a band called Drop in Gray, with their debut being released a year later. My first record deal came through an ad in Music Connection, say Frederiksen. Talk about connecting people: You have a success story right here. After the demise of the band, he concentrated on co-writing and production, landing pair Of No. 1 song for Brother Cane. Columbia Records & R whiz John Kalodner invited him to work with Aerosmith on the band Nine Lives, and the success of that record, including the Tyler / Frederiksen smash Jade, placed him on a prominent short list of outside hit makers. I feel like I am in a band in some sense, say Frederiksen, working with them all of these years like solid member on the stage. Frederiksen can work fast. He and Gavin Rossdale co-write Love remain Same, BMI-award winning Song, in a couple of hours. Someday, new collaboration with Tyler, Mark Spiro and Julian Lennon, slat for Lennons ' forthcoming album, was written within a similar time frame in a hotel room at Sunset Marquis. Penning pop is the current Frederiksen endeavor. I have been working on songs for the new Rihanna record.
