The Aerosmith frontman confirmed that he will no longer return to the next season of ‘American Idol’.
“After some long…. hard ….thoughts…I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress American Idol before she boils my rabbit”, he said in a statement, THR reports.
Tyler added that he wants to focus on Aerosmith and the band’s new album “Music From Another Dimension” out on November 6, 2012.
“I strayed from my first love, AEROSMITH, and I’m back–but instead of
begging on my hands and knees, I got two fists in the air and I’m
kicking the door open with my band. The next few years are going to be
dedicated to kicking some serious ass–the ultimate in auditory
“On Nov 6, we are unleashing our new album, Music From Another Dimension on the Earth, Moon, Mars, and way beyond the stars. Idol was over the top fun, and I loved every minute of it…Now it’s time to bring Rock Back. ERMAHGERD.”
The show’s creator, Simon Fuller, released a statement confirming Tyler’s exit and adding that the show and the team will miss the rock legend.
