Rockitt Rant – Aerosmith Part II
The Aerosmith insanity continues to spill into 2010 with more rumors of Aerosmith seeking out a new singer. While the band continues talks with Lenny Kravitz, Billy Idol, Amy Winehouse, Lady Gaga, Howard Stern, Oscar the Grouch, Spongebob Squarepants and countless others that will complete dilute and destroy the Aerosmith name, Steven Tyler seems to have completely lost his mind, singing Aerosmith karaoke in Home Depot stores. What the hell is going on with Aerosmith?!?
If Aerosmith carries on with a different singer, they will completely harm the band’s megaband status. No one will want to see another singer with Aerosmith at this stage in the band’s career.
My sound advice for Steven Tyler, if your band mates choose to carry on without you, you need to do two things. First, finish your rehab session and get healthy. Second, when you are of sound mind, make one phone call, NOT to your manager, NOT to Joe Perry. Call Slash!
A Velvet Revolver fronted by Steven Tyler would escalate VR to uber band status. Slash and company are heavily influenced by Aerosmith, and with you joining them, the band would reach new heights, and leave your former band in the dust. If the relationship between you and your former band is beyond all repair, this is the only move that makes sense at this stage in your career.
Of course, I would think that the grown men in Aerosmith could work out their issues, and stop all the nonsense. I would prefer Aerosmith to keep Tyler as their front man, and move away from all the drama, but I guess this is only way they can keep the band’s name out there now.
If Aerosmith can’t continue with Steven Tyler, Velvet Revolver would be damn cool with him. Give it some thought!
