After listening to Steven Tyler talk for thirty minutes we were smitten by his down-to-earth and just amazing personality. Starting the chat with "Darling how are you?" in his rock star voice we knew this was going to be a great little talk. He seriously puts the legend in legendary. America’s greatest rock-and-roll band
Steven Tyler doesn't stop. With American Idol premiering tomorrow he is nearly booked up with getting ready for his tour with Aerosmith, starting in November & beginning song writing next week. But he warned us not to believe the tabloids -- "Aerosmith doesn't get in the way" of American Idol like they are claiming it does and he is ready for everything.
Steven has "no regrets"as he is a "grateful recovering drug addict and alcoholic" and is "always ready to take it up a notch" confessing he is "addicted to adrenaline."
On Judging: "Taking what I've grown up with - being a very harsh judge of myself, my own vocals, my own brand & kind of laid that across." He just wants to be honest and open this season and hopes to find the next American Idol. So, will he be bringing more rock and less pop? "I've got a good ear for all music, it's not just a one phase process." He is looking for "rock star quality" and claims one of the contestants will be bringing it - "His voice is ridiculous." Steven couldn't say much but he did confirm that he has more then a one year contract. He promised us he was going to take it up a notch this season on American Idol.
Thoughts on J.Lo? "She's a fox with a big heart and she's also street. I feel in love with her in The Backup Plan.
Favorite idols? Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson
Most sung Aerosmith song during auditions? He heard about 15-16 "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" and on a few he was able to get into it but some were hard for him to judge. He felt they were doing it just to impress him as a judge.
"If anyone has anything to say bad about me this season, it will get better next year."
Oh, Steven. You had us at "DARLINGGGG HOW ARE YOU?!!!"
