American Idol: Steven Tyler’s Future With The Show And Aerosmith

May 28, 2011 08:00 AM by Allyson Wells

American Idol judge Steven Tyler had a chance to show off his own vocal range by performing a classic Aerosmith tune during the season finale of American Idol.  The rock star sang Aerosmith’s trademark song, ‘Dream On.’  However, he was not backed by his band, despite recent insistence that Aerosmith members would be joining him.

Steven Tyler had said during recent weeks that Aerosmith would play the American Idol finale.  However, lead guitarist Joe Perry said in a recent online posting that the band was never asked by producers to perform at the event.  He also said that Brad Whitford, also an Aerosmith guitarist, was already booked for another gig that very same night.

The band has been in turmoil over the past few years, so it came as a surprise that they might reunite for the show.  Instead, Tyler was backed by talented and respected brothers Dean and Robert DeLeo, guitarist and bassist for Stone Temple Pilots.

As for the future, Steven Tyler is still contractually obligated to American Idol and will appear again next season.  As for his future band, don’t look for him to join Stone Temple Pilots.  They are currently working on new material and touring with irreplaceable front man Scott Weiland.  Joe Perry may have hinted at an Aerosmith future when he said that they were “looking forward to playing ‘American Idol’ next season when our new CD is out and we can prepare for a kick-ass show if they ask us.”  Stay tuned for the details on the continued drama!

    RU kidding me…these guys are obligated to thier fans and act like a bunch of babies. At thier age..you’d think by now after surviving all these years in the music industry they would have some sort of professionality at least for thier fans. The endless crybaby tactics is getting old. I can understand disagreeing about music..all have a different ear..however this doesnt seem like its about the music but a bunch of spoiled crybabies not a group of professional musicians. Get yer act together Aerosmith and give your fans a definate answer that you will be playing together soon..or get off the bus. We as fans won’t wait forever. Consider yourself blessed at your age that people want to still hear you instead of you being retired and living on rotten medical and social security!
