Paul Rodgers Approached To Replace Steven Tyler in Aerosmith

If he was good enough to replace Freddie Mercury in Queen, why shouldn't Paul Rodgers replace Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler. At least that was what Joe Perry might have been thinking when he approached the veteran singer at an event late last year.

Classic Rock broke the news on Wednesday; here is part of their report: Classic Rock can confirm that Paul Rodgers was invited to be Aerosmith's new frontman. This happened at the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour in London last November, when Aerosmith's troubles with singer Steven Tyler were just beginning to surface.

The awards were a star-studded affair. Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry and Rodgers were among the multitude of high-profile rockers in attendance... Classic Rock's Jerry Ewing, who was sitting at the table, overheard Perry make a direct approach to Rodgers about replacing Tyler in Aerosmith.... "Perry is starting to tell Rodgers that they have problems with Tyler and that they intend to carry on regardless and how great it would be if Rodgers took the slot, and would he be interested in trying out?"

Classic rock promised to reveal the identity of two more singers who were approached for the gig. - Read the full report here
