Tyler To Rock On With Aerosmith

AEROSMITH frontman STEVEN TYLER has confirmed he plans to continue working with the band while filming TV talent show AMERICAN IDOL, insisting he is prepared to "juggle" his two jobs.
The singer was recently announced as the latest addition to the show's judging panel alongside Jennifer Lopez, following the departure of Simon Cowell, Ellen DeGeneres and Kara DioGuardi, and he is currently overseeing the audition process for the next series.
News of Tyler's appointment sparked outrage among his Aerosmith bandmates, who feared the American Idol job would ruin their plans to tour and record a new album.
Tyler has now spoken out to assure fans he has not abandoned the group, and will continue recording with Aerosmith while he films Idol.
He tells the CBS Interactive Music Group, "We're gonna work on it (the album) while I'm doing Idol. Idol's two days a week. So I'm gonna be living in L.A. at the time. So the band'll come back and forth and we'll work on it."
Tyler admits his relationship with his bandmates did become strained at one point, but he's convinced the group will be able to return "stronger" than ever.
He adds, "There was some tension (with my bandmates). And in all good marriages... I'm married to four men. I mean, you think women are bad... So it's a marriage, and there's a lot of ups and downs, and we went through a period there - a slow period - where everybody was not feeling so good. But you know, I'm a fighter. I've got my own ups and downs... But this did nothing but bring the band together and make it stronger. I can only speak for myself. As you see, I'm doing Idol. I can juggle a lot of balls, so it's all looking good."
Tyler previously fell out with his bandmates last year (09) when he unexpectedly quit the band. The remaining members decided to audition for a new singer so they could continue plans for a tour and a new album, but Tyler's lawyers blocked the move and he subsequently rejoined them.
