Rocker Steven Tyler is eyeing megastar collaborations with Elton John and Paul McCartney.
“I’d like to write something with some other folks,” he told breakfast show. “Maybe Elton, McCartney.”
“I’ve already asked Paul,” Steven revealed. “He goes, ‘Well, you know, send me something if you got it’. I went, ‘That’s not what I mean!’”
It’s not clear if Tyler wants his next solo project to be in the same country style as We’re All Somebody From Somewhere, but returning to the kind of music he loved as a youth was a lot of fun creatively for the star.
“I wanted it to be outlaw country; I miss that market…,” he said. “Remember, I grew up into country, I was way into The Everly Brothers, more than anything else, Janis Joplin, so I’m into that; I’m into that big time.”
Meantime, Steven Tyler is heading out on a solo tour of the United States, Canada and Europe, backed once again by the Loving Mary Band. Upstart country duo the Sisterhood Band will support.
Look, I don’t expect to hit like the Beatles or be the second coming of Aerosmith,” Tyler said (via USA Today). “It was time for a little break.”
