Kravitz Nixes Aerosmith Role

Lenny Kravitz used his Twitter account to announce he has taken himself out of contention as a replacement or fill-in in for Steven Tyler.  His Monday (12/7) post said he was flattered the 'Aerosmith camp' considered him - but called Tyler a family friend and wrote, '...no voice could ever take the place of his.' Smart move... and a decision the band should anticipate every established artist it approaches will arrive at.  The guys behind Tyler for all those years are well known and highly regarded, but Steven has always been the face and the voice of Aerosmith. Trying to fill his shoes should look like a losing proposition to any candidate, no matter how strong his pipes and stage presence are.
