Steven Tyler is getting ready to be a judge on the new season of American Idol but he’s also thinking about recording new Aerosmith music.

New Aerosmith album?? YEAH! but itseems to often be the case with the band, there is an issue. The singer told Rolling Stone he’s trying to “rally the guys together” but they’re “having trouble” getting guitarist Joe Perry since Steven doesn’t know where he is. Tyler goes on to tell Joe through the article, “Just come down to L-A at the end of January sometime. I’ve had enough downtime.” 

The new season of American Idol premieres January 19th at 8 PM Eastern on FOX.
