Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford says they were “seriously talking about” replacing Steven Tyler a few years ago, but he’s glad they didn’t have to travel down that road.

Whitford says, “Steven was a little bit tired and fed up with the way things were going. But we just felt like we couldn’t just let the band fall apart… We spoke to maybe one or two singers about the idea, but that was about as far as it went. I don’t think anybody in the band was terribly keen about getting in a new lead singer. I think we were all just thinking about survival at that point. We weren’t ready to give up on the band.”

Among the singers whose names came up were Sammy Hagar, Paul Rodgers, Billy Idol, Lenny Kravitz and Chris Cornell.
