Aerosmith Slams American Idol - Top Story of 07

[originally published 05/25/07](Contact Music) AEROSMITH frontman STEVEN TYLER has blasted TV talent shows insisting he could never "endorse such methods" for discovering new talent. The rocker refuses to watch shows like American Idol, which featured his guitarist Joe Perry last night (23May07), because he feels stars should work hard to reach the top - not get lucky on a television show.

He says, "I'm not sure how I feel about those kinds of shows, to be honest. "One of my personal biggest influences was my father, Victor Tallarico. He practised every day on a Steinway grand (piano) in our small apartment, and I listened to him play the classics.

"I started singing when I was three, in front of family and friends (and) later from watching bands like the Kinks, the Beatles."[ - more on this story
