Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler says he’ll probably be an ‘American Idol’ judge

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler says in the video below that he’ll probably sign on as a judge for “American Idol.”

Is he replacing Simon Cowell? The lead judge will be expected to be very direct. It’s unlikely that Tyler will be reducing contestants to tears. Maybe he’ll be a guest judge. I guess we’ll wait and see what happens this week.

One obstacle to Tyler being a regular is his schedule. Right now, Aerosmith has dates booked through September. Lots of them. They have many more lined up around the world, and are expected to make an album before the end of the year. It’s not clear if Tyler understands the “Idol” schedule. What will the other band members do from January through May of next year if Tyler has to be in a TV studio two days a week?

And then there’s Tyler’s baggage: we love him, but he has more baggage than Ivana Trump arriving in Gstaad for ski season.
