who could/should replace steven tyler?
when any band gets a new singer, it can go one of two ways: real good or real bad. especially for a heritage group like aerosmith, who’s singer’s voice represents a huge component of the band’s overall sound. think about it: brian johnson, sammy hagar (and, by implication, gary cherone), william duvall, even journey’s newbie, arnel pineda. they all had big shoes to fill, and they filled them with varying degrees of success and fan acceptance.
so who could/should replace steven tyler? sammy hagar? steve perry?!
UPDATE 11/11/09 - last night, as i was posting this blog, "tyler joined perry and [the joe perry project] for an encore version of 'walk this way,'" reported billboard.biz, and "he told the crowd that 'i am not leaving aerosmith' and told perry 'you are a man of many colors, but i am the motherf--king rainbow!'"
looks like we spoke too soon...
