NEW YORK, March 1 (UPI) -- Veteran U.S. rock band Aerosmith will release a 12-track blues album called "Honkin' on Bobo" on March 30, Billboard.com reported Monday.

The album on Columbia will feature the rockers covering a wide selection of blues classics and performing an original, "The Grind."

"We're not making an album for blues purists. We're not making an album to educate people in the blues, we're not making an album to try and copy Muddy Waters," guitarist Joe Perry last year. "What we're doing is taking songs that when we heard them made the hair on the back of our neck stand up and playing them the way we feel."

Among the classics the band takes on are Muddy Waters' "I'm Ready," Little Walter's "Temperature," Big Joe Williams' "Baby Please Don't Go," Sonny Boy Williamson's "Eyesight to the Blind," Mississippi Fred McDowell's "You Got To Move" and Bo Diddley's "Road Runner," as well as "Stop Messin' Around," an early Fleetwood Mac track.
