Aerosmith Honored Before the Honor

Steven Tyler and Joe Perry will not be present to receive the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers’ Founders Award. ASCAP’s 30th annual Pop Music Awards take place next Wednesday in Los Angeles, but Aerosmith will be on tour in Australia. So the Toxic Twins picked up their award this week.

Tyler said, “I think people are enamored by the music, and I think they’re pushed over the top by the fact that we stood the test of time, we’re still together and didn’t quit… Writing songs is like panning for gold. It’s like sifting through life and you look for a little nugget, and if you hit on it, you’re really lucky. It’s such an honor to be with those other songwriters. If I can use that as a template, that’s where the honor lies.”

Previous Founders Award recipients include Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Tom Waits. Tyler and Perry will be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in June.
