    Default Sammy to join Aerosmith???

    http://www.classicrockmagazine.com/n...oin-aerosmith/

    Was only a matter of time before this one came about.
    So we've had Paul Rodgers, Lenny Kravitz, Billy Idol, Chris Cornell so far

    Funny thing is i think Sammy would do a decent job at it:



    Rumour Of The Week: Hagar To Join Aerosmith
    gbarton / News, Top Posts / 05/02/2010 12:50pm

    Is Sammy Hagar going to replace Steven Tyler as Aerosmith’s frontman?

    Earlier this week Classic Rock heard that the Chickenfoot (and former Montrose/Van Halen) singer had agreed to sing with the Boston band on a forthcoming world tour.

    A source told us:

    “The idea is for Sammy and Aerosmith to rake in big bucks on the road while leaving Steven Tyler to sort out his problems. Then Tyler would return to the band in a couple of years’ time.”

    Hagar, we reckon, is one of the few singers who could handle Tyler’s scattergun lyrics and singing style. So it made a strange kind of sense.

    We contacted Hagar’s manager, John Carter, and told him we had it on good authority that Sammy was joining Aerosmith.

    Carter reponded: “Good authority must mean The Enquirer because his Led Zep gig conflicts with the Aerosmith job.

    “Seriously, Sam is very happy to be going into the studio with Chickenfoot to start the second album in April.”

    The Aerosmith camp declined to comment.

    I like his manager's response.

    I could see Sammy doing maybe a few songs or a show but not a complete tour. I think the Chickenfoot thing is going too well for him to put that aside for Aerosmith.

    Joe Perry is asking everyone to join Aerosmith. I ran in to him at KFC and he asked me to but I told him I had to go down to pick up a load of manure in Conyers and was gonna have to pass. But I hear Bjork was free.

    I don't think Sam wants to be known as the "replacement" guy.

    He doesn't need the money and he has a gig he seems to really enjoy.

    I don't see why he would even consider it.

    So much for the Sam vs. Dave threads, soon we might have the Sam vs. Steven threads to replace them.

    Next we'll be hearing rumors of Mike and Sam getting together with Paul and Ringo to form a group called the "Worm Beatles"

    I bet the people at the Aerosmith camp asked Sammy to join....
    "Keep honking buddy. I'm reloading..." -The Mard

    "......HEY!.............alright............." -BIG FOOT

    " I know what you're thinking: "Do I want to watch Mard? We know that horses were very strong and could actually stop airplanes from flying away. The ones made out of stone called "statues" -- occasionally came to life and rode off is a colonial cliche. How many more times do we need to hear about how the oppressive Raj's wore villainous black capes, crafted cunning plastic masks to impersonate people, and drained all the blood from their slaves so they could keep the fluid in bottles in their dungeons? I mean, YAWN!

    But if you're willing to sit through this dry sort of historical drama one more time -- or even just this dry historical review -- you will not be disappointed. In fact, some of you might just learn something they didn't teach you in school!-

    I don't see the vocal resemblances at all. Yes Sam has range, but the rhythm of his singing is totally different than Steven's.

    I'm pretty sure how this rumor started, though. Two idiots at the Aerosmith Office camp were probably like: "dude, which singer has successfully replaced another famous one in a big band...?" "er.... Sammy Hagar in Van Halen..." "ah yeah... sure thing... let's try this one..."

    CFII starts in April... awesome!!!

    Joe Perry should just take the rest of the band on tour, and have 3 or 4 guest singers singing through out the night if he really needs to get out and play. Let Steven get healthy, and then put another comeback album and tour together.

    I could see Chickenfoot co-headlining with Aerosmith (tyler singing of course).

    I doubt it. Sammy loves to join "already classic" bands and put his, er, stamp on them...

    He's probably been slobbin' Joe Perry's knob since November, I figure Maybe he can work out a deal where he gets Tom Hamilton fired so Mike can join.

    Plus, it's an easy way for them to get in the RnRoll HOF twice! Think he hasn't thought of that?





    disclaimer - I'm just kidding - Mard and I go way back - what's up, dude!!!?

    I think Sam could handle the gig no problem - however if he went with the gig - he'd be the brunt of a lot of 'replacement' jokes...Kimmel / Letterman / etc would have a field day. I think he would do it as a couple of 'one off' things just for the honour of standing w/ the boys in Aerosmith.

    However, as someone aptly pointed out - he's going into the studio in APRIL to record a new CF CD?!? Hot-god-fucking-damn! This is news! And I follow then on Facebook and have their iPhone app....

    Can you imagine how fucking tight the next CD is going to sound?!? Seriously! They've had a road tour to further figure out / gel together.

    If the 2nd CD is anywhere nearly as good as the first, I don't need a VH CD again.

    Insert obligatory reference that I think CF made money on this CD - and VH would easily outsell them IF they released a DLR singing CD....I wonder what Ed's accountant would say about this?!

    Aerosmith brought to you by Cabo Wabo ! LOL
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.
