Steven Tyler - Aerosmith Songs Land Steven Tyler, Joe Perry In Hall Of Fame

Steven Tyler probably thought that he could receive no higher accolade than being asked to participate in the American Idol judging panel so imagine the joy that the Aerosmith frontman must have experienced when he discovered that he’d be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, along with his co-writer Joe Perry.

Associated Press broke the news that Tyler and Perry will be landed with the Hall of Fame honor for the creative prowess that he has displayed on songs such as ‘Dude Looks Like A Lady’ and ‘Love In An Elevator.’ Tyler and Perry have not always enjoyed the most harmonious of working relationships but they recently released their 15th studio album, entitled Music From Another Dimension. Joining Tyler and Perry in the Hall of Fame will be Lou Gramm and Mick Jones of Foreigner, as well as Holly Knight, JD Souther and Tony Hatch.

Holly Knight wrote the songs ‘Love Is A Battlefield’ and ‘Invincible’ for Pat Benatar as well as penning several of Tina Turner’s hits. Hatch, meanwhile, made his name by writing songs like ‘Downtown,’ for Petula Clark, during the British Invasion of the 1960s. Foreigner were among the bands at the forefront of the 80s rock ballad sound, with Jones and Gramm churning out hits like ‘I Wanna Know What Love Is’ and ‘Cold As Ice.’
