http://www.classicrockmagazine.com/news/joe-perry-wanted-paul-rodgers-to-join-aerosmith/

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.
During a break in the ceremony Perry approached Scott Rowley, Classic Rock’s Editor In Chief, and asked him: “Can you introduce me to Paul Rodgers?”
Amazingly, Perry had never met the Free/Bad Company/The Firm/Queen + Paul Rodgers frontman before.
Rowley guided Perry to Rodgers’ table and the two stars engaged in conversation while Rowley chatted to Rodgers’ wife, Cynthia.
However, Classic Rock’s Jerry Ewing, who was sitting at the table, overheard Perry make a direct approach to Rodgers about replacing Tyler in Aerosmith.
Ewing recalls:
“Basically Scott came over with Joe Perry who had asked to be introduced to Paul. After an initial introduction Perry started saying how Rodgers was his second-favourite vocalist of all time.
“Rodgers typically asked who Perry’s favourite was, and Perry said: ‘The lead singer of Aerosmith.’ Cue some embarrassed laughter.
“The talk then moved on to what Perry was doing and he said that he was doing the Joe Perry Project and they were looking to come over here and tour, at which point Rodgers mooted the idea of them supporting Bad Company on their just-announced shows.
“The next thing, 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?
“If I remember correctly there were the usual ‘how flattering’ platitudes but no real commitment, as you’d expect, nor refusal.”
Classic Rock knows of two more major names who have been approached to sing for Aerosmith.
We’ll be revealing another of those names on www.classicrockmagazine.com tomorrow (Thursday, January 28), with the final one to follow on Friday. So stay tuned to the Classic Rock website.
The March issue of Classic Rock, which goes on sale next Wednesday, February 3, features Joe Perry on the cover and contains more exclusive Aero-revelations.

Every song would have OOOH YEAH at the start.  Annoying blues/saxophone-esque trills at the end of each verse.  And a deliberately recorded "Ha ha ha" at the end to make people think that the song was the result of an amicable jam.

That made me completely fall off the stage (backwards).  I've knocked myself silly and must go on a drinking binge.

Oh Christ.
If Steve isn't well enough to sing on tour, then I won't be buying tickets, especially if Paul Rodgers takes over.
It's bad enough he can't sing Queen songs properly, but I don;t want to hear him fuck up Aerosmith songs as well.

I suspect he will say no for fear of becoming known as "the worlds greatest stand-in"!

Vow! Rodgers is Freddie's favourite singer and Perry's second-favourite.

And soon they'll be saying he was Steven's favourite as well. Or maybe, if Mr Tyler's mum is still alive, she'll go to one of the concerts and Joe will dedicate 'Dude Looks Like a Lady' to her.




John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Paul Rodgers is the only person other than Steven Tyler I can see fronting Aerosmith - not permanently of course. They both have blues influence in their singing, one having less(Tyler), one more(Rodgers). I'm pretty sure this is gonna happen.

Paul Rodgers told Joe Perry that he was busy with Bad Co.

Now now, here's another question: Will it still be Aerosmith, or Aerosmith + Paul Rodgers?

I love the fact the original poster calls Aerosmith Aeroshite when he spunks over the word 'Kiss' when at the end of the day all anyone actually knows about Kiss is that its just a bunch of grown 'men' that wear makeup.

Unbelievable.
