Aerosmith’s oldie album, Toys in the Attic, includes a naughty number, “Big Ten Inch Record,” which fans suspect wasn’t really about a record. For decades, many listeners have wondered if a certain band, er, member was the inspiration for the song.
Well, after a recent interview with the pro-hunting rag-azine, Outside Living, I think we can all agree that the song is not about Aerosmith’s Joe Perry.
In the interview, Perry said, “(Hunting) really gives you a great opportunity to keep in touch with reality,” to which PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange shot right back, “People who take out their aggressions and frustrations on helpless animals are usually compensating for other shortcomings in their life.” She added, “We don’t know how Joe measures up, but it’s interesting that he seems to feel so satisfied when he’s handling long phallic-looking weapons.”
