According to The Pulse Of Radio, Steven Tyler says that with him, what you see is pretty much what you get. Tyler — along with AEROSMITH partner Joe Perry — has joined David Bowie, John Legend, THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS, THE FLAMING LIPS, Cyndi Lauper, and others, who’ll be supplying new songs for the 2016 “SpongeBob” musical.
Steven Tyler told The Pulse Of Radio that although he’s obviously not onstage all the time — make no mistake, there’s nothing about him that’s an act. “I don’t obviously dress as I do on stage, because that’s like my ‘superhero’ look — but I don’t hide because I’m not embarrassed,” he said. “I’m very grateful for everything I’ve ever gotten, and unfortunately, the me that’s me is me when you see me. A little hard to go out in public, but I’m kinda, sorta the same guy. If anything, people say, ‘Wow, you’re nicer that I thought,’ ‘cause they have this image of the scarves and microphone, and the clothes of that guy on stage that’s grimacing and growling and screaming, ‘Dream On’ — but I’m not far from that guy, I like to stay true.”
Steven Tyler is prepping his debut solo album for 2016. The still untitled country-based set will be released via Dot Records.
