Aerosmith - Mccartney Asks Tyler For Kennedy Centre Tribute

AEROSMITH frontman STEVEN TYLER has agreed to perform some of SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY's greatest hits at the upcoming Kennedy Centre Honors after the BEATLES star telephoned and asked him for a musical tribute.
The Hey Jude hitmaker is to be feted at the 2010 ceremony in Washington, D.C. on Sunday (05Dec10), along with singer/songwriter Merle Haggard, composer Jerry Herman, choreographer/director Bill T. Jones and media mogul Oprah Winfrey.
The show will reportedly feature a set from Tyler after MCCartney asked him to cover a number of songs from famous Beatles album Abbey Road.
Tyler tells American radio station 95.9 WATD-FM, "I also got called up by Sir Paul MCCartney and he asked me to sing the last four songs of Abbey Road, so I said 'Umm OK.' (I'm) doing it. So I'm headed down to the Kennedy honors in Washington."
The award is handed to performers to recognise their contribution to American culture. Previous honourees include Bob Dylan, Barbra Streisand and Sir Elton John.
