That moment when Steven Tyler forgets the words to his own song -- VIDEO

We’ve all been there. You start belting out a song you love — maybe after imbibing a few drinks — and you’re confident. You’re pretty sure you are Annie Lennox. Then comes the forgettable wasteland of the second verse, and you trail off into just making yodeling noises. Er…

That just happened to Steven Tyler — but he was singing his own song. READ FULL STORY

New England Patriots get a boost from Aerosmith's 'Legendary Child - Patriots Anthem'


This weekend, the New England Patriots will begin their march through the NFL playoffs in hopes of executing a few football plays on either side of a Beyoncé performance at the Super Bowl in New Orleans on February 3.

This Sunday, they’ll welcome the Houston Texans to Gillette Stadium. Despite the fact that the Patriots absolutely decimated the Texans earlier this year, the two teams match up pretty well on paper.

But there’s one thing the Pats have working for them: Aerosmith’s “Legendary Child – Patriots Anthem.”

A variation on the song “Legendary Child” that appears on Boston-bred Aerosmith’s latest album Music From Another Dimension!, “Legendary Child – Patriots Anthem” is part of a series of tracks commissioned by the NFL and Pepsi. The lineup includes Ice Cube’s Raiders battle cry “Come and Get It,” Kid Rock’s Lions-boosting “In Detroit,” and Kelly Clarkson’s Texas-sized “Get Up (A Cowboys Anthem).”

Give “Legendary Child – Patriots Anthem” a spin below.  READ FULL STORY

Aerosmith bring in roller derby girls for 'Legendary Child' video: Watch it here

Aerosmith know how to put together a music video.

The Boston band that gave the MTV generation classic clips like “Cryin'” and “Janie’s Got a Gun” are back to put on a show, this time for “Legendary Child,” the first single from their upcoming album Music From Another Dimension.

The narrated six-minute video finds American Idol judge Steven Tyler, hot sauce mogul Joe Perry, and those other guys rocking out in a warehouse while, elsewhere, a gang of ladies roller skate around and wreak havoc. Check it out in the video below:


Adele, Maroon 5, and (yes) Miley Cyrus pay tribute to Bob Dylan on new album

Adele, Miley Cyrus, Darren Criss, Dave Matthews Band, Maroon 5, Elvis Costello, Pete Seeger, Tom Morello, and Ke$ha are among the acts who have contributed new or previously unreleased tracks to the album Chimes of Freedom which pays tribute to both Bob Dylan and Amnesty International.

Adele has gifted Chimes of Freedom a live version of “Make You Feel My Love” and Cyrus sings “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go,” while folk legend Seeger performs “Forever Young.”

But they’re hardly the only ones on this massive four-disc outing. Find the just-released full tracklisting after the jump:


Steven Tyler's new '(It) Feels So Good' video: Watch it here

Back in the day, no band was a bigger deal in the video world than Aerosmith.

Each one of their hits got a jaw-dropping video that either brought narratives to life (the spooky, intense “Janie’s Got a Gun”) or indulged in sweaty rock and roll fantasies (basically anything that starred Alicia Silverstone). They were a definitive music video band, and they have the MTV Moonman trophies to prove it.

So did frontman Steven Tyler add to his band’s majestic legacy with his solo clip for “(It) Feels So Good,” which just premiered? Decide for yourself after the jump:


Steven Tyler's '(It) Feels So Good' -- a bigger comeback than J.Lo? Hear his new single here

American Idol hasn’t produced a true hitmaker in a few seasons (David Cook was arguably the last “star” the show made), but it has certainly been a great launch pad for the judges’ careers.

Kara DioGuardi found more new work as a songwriter and TV star, Jennifer Lopez resurrected her career with some hot singles (“On the Floor”; “I’m Into You”), and now Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has delivered his first solo single “(It) Feels So Good.” Hear it after the jump:


Steven Tyler talks drug use with Matt Lauer: 'I needed that cocaine'

Aerosmith frontman, American Idol judge, and wacky formulator of bon mots Steven Tyler joined Matt Lauer on Dateline tonight to discuss his history of drug use, fights with his band, and his new gig on primetime television.

The most interesting tidbit of the interview was Tyler’s admission that he was taking drugs as recently as 2009; he was high on stage  during his infamous spill, and a subsequent trip to rehab contributed to the fracturing of Aerosmith. Tyler also revealed that during the band’s heyday, venues were contractually obligated to have a small off-stage cubby for members to snort some of that sweet, sweet emotion. “I needed blow,” Tyler told Lauer. “I needed that cocaine. I needed it.” But he lamented the effect it had on his life and relations, including with daughter Liv: “That’s what drugs did. It took my children away, it took my band away, it took my marriages away, and I was on my knees.” READ FULL STORY

Aerosmith to record new album this summer? Tyler says he and Perry 'just smoked the peace pipe'

It wasn’t long ago that newbie reality TV judge Steven Tyler introduced the idiom “—- a duck and see what hatches” to unsuspecting American Idol audiences, and it looks like he’s taking his own advice to heart.

According to his Twitter feed, Tyler has buried the hatchet with long-time songwriting partner/bitter rival Joe Perry and Aerosmith are on their way to “rock’in your worlds this summer by locking our selves away somewhere w/ guitars and drums.” Guitars and drums? Who could ask for more!

Tyler says the return of Aerosmith is reason to “rejoice,” and if the classic rockers are following in the footsteps of their 2004 album, he’s not lying. Honkin’ on Bobo was a late-career highlight, showcasing the band returning to their blues-rock roots and eschewing the watered-down arena rock that ended up making them a perfect soundtrack for Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire air-guitaring on a broom.

What is the greatest guitar riff of all-time?

Keith-Richards-1964Image Credit: Peter Francis/Retna Ltd.Spinner has posted an agreeably catholic-minded list of the 50 Greatest Guitar Riffs in Rock ‘n’ Roll. True, most of the usual suspects are present, from “Layla” by Derek and the Dominos to that scourge of guitar store employees, Deep Purple’s “Smoke on the Water.” However, the list also finds space for a slew of great but less obviously riff-tastic tracks, including The Smiths’ “This Charming Man,” The Meters’ “Look-ka Py Py,” and Chic’s “Le Freak.”
