This week, Aerosmith's Steven Tyler announced that if the band were to stay together, they would leave Columbia Records for good and go the indie route. He's done it before, he can do it again.

Look at the face in the picture above, gang—that’s the picture of sobriety, according Steven Tyler, the owner of said bruised and battered mug.   The 63 year old American Idol host and Aerosmith frontman apparently took a tumble in the shower in Asuncion, Paraguay on Tuesday—but Tyler swears that it has nothing to do with his long battle with substance abuse, and that he has...

I think of the Aerosmith story in two parts, everything that happened before the release of their hit album Permanent Vacation and everything after. It's the everything after part that's shaky, including some mediocre music and a lead singer playing judge on a hack talent show. But in the days before "Dude Looks Like A Lady" reignited the band's popularity in 1987,...

Hot on the heels of the news that Madonna will be releasing a wholly and totally unnecessary album next year,  Rolling Stone reported today that Aerosmith, too, are hard at work on a wholly and totally unnecessary album (it will be their fourteenth studio disc).  So, once again, Steven Tyler will have an excuse to dress like your...

It's been a big year for Steven Tyler--maybe even bigger than the year that Armageddon reminded viewers that Aerosmith used to write good ol'fashioned blues rock (just turn the movie off before the end credits and you can forget that the group turned into a boy band for a few years). By taking a gig as a judge on "American Idol," the...

The competition has barely begun, but there's already one musical act getting a major boost in exposure thanks to "American Idol": Aerosmith.

Joe Perry Released From Hospital After Motorcycle Accident
After all of the Steven Tyler hoopla earlier this year that had many Aerosmith fans wondering if the band would ever be the same, the last thing we need now that Aerosmith has its house in order is for lead guitarist Joe Perry to go get himself rear-ended by a car when he's cruising on his motorcycle. So that happened. Perry was, indeed,...

Proving that nothing – absolutely nothing – can kill the spirit of rock ‘n roll (or in this case, an over-the-hill rock-turned-radio-pop band who realized their lifestyle wasn’t going to sustain itself on “Jaded” royalties), AP reports that Aerosmith has announced their European summer tour – with almost ex-frontman Steven Tyler.

The mudslinging continues in the "are-they or aren’t-they Aerosmith" breakup that probably should have occurred fifteen years ago. Amidst rumors of a Billy Idol takeover (setting this story’s relevance back to, say, 1985), and even Paul Rogers of Bad Company (ok, 1975), Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has confirmed to Classic Rock Magazine that his current sparring partner/ supposed...

Bily Idol To Replace Steven Tyler In Aerosmith
At first blush, the news of Billy Idol possibly in the driver's seat to replace Steven Tyler as frontman of Aerosmith just doesn't 'feel' right. That's not a knock on Idol, but it'd definitely be a drastic change. Classic Rock magazine has reported Idol was due to meet with the band members but pulled out after falling sick.

There will be someone not named Steven Tyler singing "Walk This Way," "Dream On" and the rest of the Aerosmith classics when the band gets back together to perform. Temporarily.
