STEVEN TYLER fills us in on his AMERICAN IDOL hosting duties and what we can expect from him and AEROSMITH in the future. They are working on a new album and a fall tour. AEROSMITH is incredible live and Steven Tyler, well, they just don’t make them like him anymore. He is Rock N’ Roll royalty and one of the best front men I have ever set my eyes upon. I was honored to be able to photograph them when they toured the Boston area. Steven adds something extra special to “Idol”. He has one hell of a personality that he loves to share with everyone. On the conference interview call he began by telling dirty jokes to set the mood. That is a first for me and I do a ton of interview calls so thanks Steven for adding an extra element of fun. Don’t miss STEVEN TYLER on AMERICAN IDOL on FOX.
