AEROSMITH frontman Steven Tyler was interviewed on the May 10, 2011 edition of “Sixx Sense”, the national radio program hosted by MÖTLEY CRÜE/SIXX: A.M. bassist Nikki Sixx. Tyler gave Sixx his first in-depth radio interview — connecting on a personal level about their common goal of finding and breaking new artists, Tyler through his role as a judge on “American Idol” and Sixx as host of the radio show syndicated to over 70 alternative and mainstream rock stations by Premiere Networks. In a deep and personal interview, Tyler sat down with Sixx to talk about his new autobiography, “Does The Noise In My Head Bother You?”, becoming a judge on “American Idol”, his new single (his first U.S. solo single ever), “(It) Feels So Good”, and to catch up on lives well lived. Both icons of rock can boast a literal return from the dead to now being on top of the world.
“We got to really talk about how important it is to give young artists a shot,” said Sixx who leads by example. “The audience is dying for new rock stars and Steven and I are using our new positions in the media to introduce the future of the music industry,” he continued. Hear their conversation tonight on “Sixx Sense” at 7 p.m. local time.
Unlike the years that AEROSMITH and MÖTLEY CRÜE spent together on tour, recording albums in the same studio and coming up through the clubs, talent is now discovered differently and these two heroes of rock are committed to finding the artists with quality of content.
