Steven Tyler’s Ego Knows No Bounds on ’60 Minutes’

Steven Tyler

Most people know Steven Tyler has one of the most unrestrained egos in rock (we certainly do), and on this Sunday’s edition of 60 Minutes, he once again lets his loose lips flap uncontrollably. In a clip from the segment, the Aerosmith frontman/American Idol judge/totally indestructible human is asked about being a nasty ol’ perfectionist and essentially admits to being a dick to bandmates Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton, Joey Kramer, and Brad Whitford, who described his past behavior as “tortured” and “cruel.” “I think my perfectionism and my busting everyone’s chops is what got this band to where it is today,” Tyler says (via Billboard). “In the end, I get a really good song, and in the end, I get the hits. Yeah, I’m that good.”

Tyler calls this summer’s tour “our last,” which it might be once the rest of the crew sees their fearless leader once again throwing them under the bus. Have fun with that wildly popular Steven Tyler a cappella tour! And remember, rest of Aerosmith, if you’re still not opposed to a different lead singer, SPIN had some solid suggestions back in ’09!
