Whitford/St. Holmes is the self-titled debut of then ex-Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford and then ex-Ted Nugent vocalist Derek St. Holmes, released in 1981.



In 1980, Brad Whitford left Aerosmith after an altercation with Joe Perry. He teamed up with Derek St. Holmes, who had previously played with Ted Nugent to form "Whitford/St. Holmes", together with Dave Hewitt and Steve Pace.

In 1981, they recorded their self-titled first and only album. The album was followed by a tour but neither the album nor the tour was any big success. In 1983, Whitford reunited with Joe Perry to play live at several shows with his band The Joe Perry Project. In 1984, both guitarists returned to Aerosmith to record Done with Mirrors, released in 1985 on Geffen Records.[2]
