While Aerosmith Looks for a New Singer, Steven Tyler Rocks, Um, Home Depot
Published Jan 26, 2010Believe us, until recently, we didn't realize we really cared about Aerosmith that much. Then, they announced they'd be kicking out front-man Steven Tyler, and things have been amazing and hilarious ever since.
Tyler tried to stop the gossip with an amazing quote, but Joe Perry got the rumour mill going again by telling the press that the band were auditioning for a new vocalist. That made it Tyler's turn to do something, and boy he deliver.
Rather than make some sort of boring statement to the press or something, Tyler put his vocal pipes on the spotlight in his signature, bat-shit crazy style. While shopping at the Home Depot in Rancho Mirage, CA, Tyler took the in-store PA and started belting out classic Aerosmith jams like "Dude Looks Like a Lady" and "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing."
TMZ reported the news, adding that "Tyler took a hit from a helium machine and kept singing Bee Gees style while signing autographs for anyone who asked."
Presumably, Tyler was hoping that his fans, detractors and band-mates would unite in a moment of "he's still got it!" Unfortunately, the whole story also paints a picture of senility and dementia.
Your move, Perry.
