Steven Tyler Wants to Return to American Idol as Mentor

Aerosmith front runner Steven Tyler wants to return to American Idol as a mentor! As reported via E! Online, the “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” singer said he would gladly return, but not as a judge.

‘I wouldn’t go back and be a judge, but I’d be a mentor,’ he said. ‘I loved the fact that you go through 700 people, and out of that, you really can pick someone that has talent, because they have to audition anyway.’And I’m just grateful that Jennifer and I and Randy could pick people that wound up being so good.’

Tyler also revealed that his decision to appear on Idol affected his relationship with the band.

‘We’d just come off a tour and I took Idol and I didn’t tell these guys, to be fair, and they got bummed out,’ he added. ‘We got into a lot of ya-ya because of tumult that happens in a band. Sometimes stuff doesn’t get talked out quite properly, but it always turns out as songs down the line anyway.’

Meanwhile, Tyler’s band ‘Aerosmith’ will begin their show in Oklahoma City on November 8, and will travel through North America until December 13 in Nashville.
