Aerosmith’s Brad Whitford feels ‘abandoned’ by Tyler
In an interview with Billboard published this week, Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford said that plans for the band’s early 2016 shows have been halted because of Steven Tyler’s solo album plans. “Steven doesn’t want to do it,” he told Billboard. “We kind of feel a little bit abandoned by him. I guess he seems to think his solo career is going to go great guns, and he doesn’t seem to realize that, in my opinion, his fans around the globe want to see him in the context of Aerosmith and don’t really care for whatever he thinks he’s gonna do.” Tyler’s recorded his country-ish album in Nashville, and the first single, “Love Is Your Name,” barely cracked the Top 20 on the Hot Country Songs. To keep him busy, Whitford has teamed up with Derek St. Holmes, singer and guitarist for Ted Nugent. The pair play the Token Lounge in Westland Friday.
