Steven Tyler made Aerosmith great

American Idol judge Steven Tyler has revealed that he believes that he is the reason that his band Aerosmith became so great. Steven claims that his drive for perfection pushed the rest of the band to up their game and in return they made great music.

Tyler explained, “I’m going to be big-headed right now, OK?. I think my perfectionism and my busting everyone’s chops is what got this band to where it is today. In the end, I get a really good song and in the end, I get the hits. Yeah, I’m that good.”
Meanwhile, his Aerosmith bandmate Joey Kramer added, “When you ask what makes the band great, I think that it’s a combination of all of us, Steven making it greater. It takes somebody so over the top and in our case with our lead singer, Steven Tyler, who’s this amazingly gifted musician.”
Steven Tyler is currently in the process of the latest season of American Idol but once the season has finished, Aerosmith are set to embark on a new major tour. It will be the first major tour that Aerosmith have done with Steven Tyler since 2009.

I love working with the contestants and singers and artists, and working with Steven, Randy and Ryan [Seacrest].”
Jennifer added. “[This] has been one of the best things I’ve ever been involved with so I said, ‘OK, I’m going to do it again’.” Jennifer Lopez will be rejoining the same, season ten, judging panel of Randy Jackson and Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler. American Idol is set to return next year.
