Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford says the band have considered touring without frontman Steven Tyler. The singer has been in Nashville working on his upcoming solo country album since last year. And when asked if they could hit the road with a guest vocalist, Whitford says it’s something the band have discussed.
He tells Metal Rules: “Absolutely, we have considered it – but whether it will happen I don’t know. I think it would be great.” Tyler’s side-project has been a bone of contention amongst his Aerosmith bandmates, as it resulted in them cancelling most of their 2016 tour plans, according to the guitarist.
Whitford, who’ll release Reunion from his collaboration with former Ted Nugent Band singer Derek St Holmes next month, admits their studio sessions felt “like a vacation” from Aerosmith as they work so well together.
