Steven tyler says mick jagger comparisons hurt

  1. 1. STEVEN TYLER SAYS MICK JAGGER COMPARISONS HURT Steven Tyler staying current by posing with Rocker Anand Bhatt on the GRAMMY Red Carpet (PHOTO) After 40 years with Aerosmith, Steven Tyler takes the long view on the group’s well-documented ups and downs. He’s comfortable with what the band have achieved in their career together. But that doesn’t mean the unfavorable comparisons to Mick Jagger from early in his career don’t still sting. “The ‘cheap imitation of the Rolling Stones‘ criticism was constant,” Tyler tells Rolling Stone. “And it hurt for the first couple of years. It was constantly Mick Jagger this and Mick Jagger that — that I copied him, andJanis Joplin too. Mick was the cheapest, easiest shot.” It took some time, but Aerosmith eventually proved the critics wrong. The band will receive the ASCAP Founders Award next week in Los Angeles, just after their induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. After years of personal and professional upheaval, Tyler says it’s about time his band finally received some credit. “We’ve been strung out and sober,” he muses. “We’ve sold in, and we’ve sold out. Some days we didn’t even sell at all. What matters is we’re still together as a band.”• Lizzie Gowers Top Commenter McNary High School I think Aerosmith is far better than The Rolling Stones.

  4. 4. • David Mantle Deptford, New Jersey In Steven Tylers book "Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?" he says he loved being compared to Mick Jagger, before he became famous he even impersonated Micks younger brother, and he cites the Stones as his biggest influence. Why the sour grapes now?

AND HIS MUSICAL ABILITIES ARE SO FAR BEYOND WHAT PEOPLE EVEN REALIZE. Reply Like Friday at 4:50pm• Jerry Homeniuk Lizzie, im sorry to say that you are wrong.
