Is Steven Tyler's moonlighting as a judge on American Idol slowing down the recording of the new Aerosmith album? Tyler, who's been in L.A. promoting the upcoming season of Idol, says, "I gotta lay lyrics on it and I haven't had a lot of time. What I've listened to so far just knocked me out. I know a good song. I know what's gonna get played on the radio. I'm not that pretentious to say I think we've got hits, but I think we've got something, and that's all that matters."
Aerosmith plan to finish recording in L.A. around Tyler's Idol schedule.
