The old grannies in Aerosmith are still fighting over Idol

When Steven Tyler joined American Idol, a lot of people were angry. Including Kid Rock. But no one was as angry as Tyler’s own band mate, guitarist Joe Perry.

Now that Steven is out of American Idol, you’d think they’d be over it within the band, and would just focus on the music… Right? Wrong. Just watch the video above (at around 1:40).

If you think about it, most bands break up because of the tension between certain band members. Usually between the singer and the guitar player. I’m guessing that happens because no matter what, the singer will always be the most important member of the band in people’s eyes, so he will develop an ego and think he’s bigger than the band itself. Also, the guitarist always gets a lot of attention too, enough to get him an ego, but not as much as the singer, making him jealous and insecure.

As a misanthropic piece of shit myself, I can definitely understand calling it quits when you’re forced to work with people you dislike. At one point, no money, fame, or critical acclaim can make you stand certain assholes any longer, especially ones that act like little divas. So I’m not above hating someone, I definitely understand it. But at least be manly about it.

Get into a fist fight, challenge each other to gun duels, don’t just go running to the press to talk shit about the other guy. That’s what girls do, man. Just be a man and hate your band member and former friend like a man.

Now back to Aerosmith, it is pretty obvious that these guys cannot stand each other, but somehow they made it work. Which would be respectable, I guess, if they didn’t act like gossipy little brats. Not only do they dress and fight like chicks, but they both talk like they came straight out of “Mean Girls.”

– Like, I was totally like, feeling that American Idol gig and certain people were jealous of me
– Nuh-uh, girl, speak for yourself, I wasn’t jealous at all.
– Bitch!!!!

Grow up, guys. You’re older than the American dollar, time to stop these petty catfights in the press.


Steven Tyler screams the national anthem

Is he in pain? Someone give him some help.


Meet the biggest mouth in the world

I don’t think a bigger mouth than Steven’s exists, so if you want to witness the 9th wonder of the world in person, there’s a chance for you to do that.

Where? At Macy’s at Herald Square in NYC.

Just make sure to bring a camera with a very wide lens, if you want to take a photo of the whole thing.

I don’t have any other details to offer, maybe because I’m lazy. This is a good opportunity to learn how to use Google, dammit. I’m not your fucking slave.

How many times can you cover Walk This Way?

I like ‘Walk This Way,’ I think it’s a good song. But haven’t Aerosmith done enough damage with their Run DMC cover, that gave people the okay to mix rock with hip-hop? Just how many times are we planning to cover this song?

Apparently, many many more times…

Jedward and their quiffs show no signs of flopping. They are in talks for their biggest collaboration yet – with Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler on a new version of the rockers’ 70s hit Walk This Way.

Read full article here and try not to laugh at that photo.

If you don’t know who Jedward are, good. Neither do we. But the prospect of yet another silly cover of this classic song makes me puke in my mouth. Hopefully it’s just a silly rumor.



Weak Recap: Yes we can, bitch!

A few months ago, I had a dream. A dream that we could recap our weeks on Sunday without falling in the blog cliche of just making a list of some of our articles. And my creativity and my egomania had sex and came up with the offspring that is The Weak Recap.

Basically we recap the week by interviewing each other. It feeds our egos and it’s letting you know how awesome we’ve been the week before.

So now it’s my turn to interview NFL legend, influential guitarist and all-around amazing metal bloger, Simo. After the jump.
