Guitarist Joe Perry tells Yahoo/Launch News that fans should go to the fan club web site and vote for their favorites from throughout the band’s career. The poll is open until October 15, which would give the band at-least two weeks to rehearse the winners, since they hit the road with rocker Lenny Kravitz,starting October 30 in Uncasville, Connecticut.

Perry recently told Boston radio station WZLX-FM that the idea to focus on an album or two has been around for a while.

“It’s been something we’ve talked about for years, you know, like, actually doing a kind of a mini-set in the middle of a big set, you know, where you do an album from front-to-back, in that order,” says Perry. “So if we got enough of a groundswell from our fans to do something like that, we would definitely do it.”
