Aerosmith Holding Auditions for Replacement Singer

1/21/2010 By Josiah Hughes

 

Someone needs to send the members of Aerosmith a Google Wave invite, because they clearly need some help with their collaborating and communication skills. The last few months have seen all kinds of contradictory rumours from the band. Sometimes, Steven Tyler is quitting; other times, he's just taking a few years off. Then there's the quotes where he says he isn't going anywhere. Now, guitarist Joe Perry has announced that the band are auditioning replacement singers.

 

According to a Reuters report, Perry said that by February he hopes to “start having some auditions, making some phone calls. Hopefully, we'll have found a new singer by the summer, and Aerosmith will be able to go back out on the road.” He also said that the replacement singer would be involved with new material.

 

This doesn't mean that Steven Tyler is out of the band for good, however. As Perry said, “It's kind of hard to get a straight answer about what's going on... He has to have leg surgery and foot surgery and it's basically going to take him out of the picture for about a year, year-and-a-half. So, in the meantime, the rest of the band want to play. And I want to play with the other guys in Aerosmith. So the four of us are just making our plans. We're gonna find somebody to get in there and fill that spot. Just like when Tom [Hamilton] was sick — we got David Hull to come in and play bass. When [guitarist] Brad [Whitford] was sick, we got somebody else to come in and play for him. That's basically how I look at it; we need another singer to fill in.”

 


 Tyler is expected to be fronting the band again in 2011, when they celebrate their 40th anniversary. In the meantime, they'll be recruiting a new singer. Or maybe Steven Tyler will change his mind again. All the while, much younger bands will be making infinitely more interesting music.

My take: I don't care. They had some good early releases and I liked Permanent Vacation, Get A Grip and Pump but after those...boring.

Just my opinion, obviously they have a big history and following.

I mostly agree as well. I do think it sux that they're leavin' it up in the air, so to speak, & the fans are left wonderin' one way or the other whether they continue as Aerosmith, or retire that band, or begin again with another, new name. :screwy: I would hope that the fellas would decide asap, then move forward in whichever direction & not leave some of their fans hangin'. <_<

Joe Perry has even asked Paul Rogers apparently - noooooo!! Luckily Rogers turned it down, not that he's a bad singer but he's a million miles from Aerosmith...or Queen for that matter.

    • ....If we have something negative to say we will surely let it fly
    • Still waiting for the  2 inch dick Chinese to be held responsible for giving the world the plague.POS Biden Admin and their pussy diplomatic boycott - forget the entire d@mn thing.Send NO athletes.
    • Unless your beathing and lungs are so fucked up you have to be put on a ventilator.  So sorry I inconvenienced hospital staff. 
    • The morons who go to the hospital are just as ridiculous as the people who rail on them for not being vaxed, maybe it's Darwin's theory and who are we to interfere? I begrudgingly went to the hospital, they told me I had Covid, to come to the hospital, I went in they checked my kidney function, gave me some strips to pee on every 7 days, if the strip turned red then to come straight in, then I went home, I think that's pretty common sense, when you make the decision to not get vaxed, don't you kind of assume the risk if it's real? they cant do anything for you, so whats the point in going there? everything they can do you can do at your house, I am firmly in favor of a waiver you need to sign if your not getting vaxed that waives the hospital of any of their duties to treat you, I always spout self accountability rhetoric, that's my olive branch to a vax that's about as trustworthy as the communists pushing it, in my opinion.
    • Who comes out on top in these singer vs singer match-ups. All random. No real rhyme or reason.  
    • Hour Of Doom - Cornerstone 
    • Steel Glove - Accept ( a collection of songs pre " Balls to the walls " )  
    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar
