Bassist: ‘Idol’ won’t interfere with Aerosmith

According to Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton, the 62-year-old singer believes he has the time and energy for both “Idol” and the band.

“Steven’s been very emphatic in saying that the way his time is arranged on the show leaves room to work on a record, ” Hamilton said yesterday from his home near Boston. “He’s been taking great pains to remind everybody of that, so hopefully that’s the way it will come out.”

“There’s a lot of not knowing what’s going to happen, but that’s how it’s always been for us, ” Hamilton said. “I’m not sitting here thinking that (Tyler on “American Idol”) is not going to work for us. Steven is an incredible I-can-do-anything kind of guy. But he’s taken a big bite, and I’m looking forward to seeing him chew it.”

Here’s what David had to say: “I think it’ll be exciting, actually. They’re pretty big names. People know who they are, and they’ve got a great reputation in what they do.

David, of course, is in York as the headliner for WLAN’s Birthday Barnyard Dance. Check back later for coverage and photos from the show.

Interview: Taylor Hicks, on Music, Business, and His Future

Taylor Hicks is a maverick, determined to carve his own path through the often daunting music industry. By his own admission, it hasn’t been easy. His life changed forever in 2006, when he won American Idol during the show’s fifth season. His Idol coronation single, “Do I Make You Proud, ” was an instant number one Billboard hit. His major label debut album, Taylor Hicks, sold nearly 300, 000 copies in its first week, eventually receiving platinum certification from the RIAA.

Soon after the first flush of stardom, Taylor Hicks made the very brave decision to manage his career independently. He’d been toiling away at the lower rungs of the business for ten years prior to American Idol. During that time, he developed a very strong vision of himself as an artist. With his Idol victory validating the years of hard work, Hicks put his plans into action – even though it required swimming against the mainstream current.

X Factor sneak peek: Chloe Mafia ruins her chances with a vodka binge

CHLOE MAFIA ruined her chances of X Factor stardom by going on a drinking session before a make-or-break audition.

And the mother’s hangover is clearly visible in tonight’s bleary-eyed performance.

The unimpressed judges axe Chloe Mafia (and her 100 meters of hair extensions) from the show after her shambolic singing of Beyonce Knowles hit Wishing On A Star.

    What did they call the Monte guy? I think they gave him a nickname?

  2. MJ- is there going to be a Singapore thread today for Adam? I thought I read on twitter something about a stream here?

    Studio57- I was going to ask the same thing. Both Adam and Daughtry perform at this F1 thing and it is BIG. Although I think Daughtry has already performed today.

  3. yeah, aa6- I think they were three hours apart for some reason so he went on at 8:30 am. Do they race in between or something?

    Uncle Soy Sauce- that was it! I thought it was Singapore but might be wrong.

    I believe I read that renataamelo will be running a Singapore thread today.

    Daughtry performed pre-race — Lambert’s performing post-race.

  7. Reminder:

    I got sued after posting ONLY 5 PARAGRAPHS of a longer article in my headlines thread, with a link back. I am liable for ANYTHING my posters cut and paste into comments.

    PLEASE CUT AND PASTE NO MORE THAN 3 PARAGRAPHS from an article. LESS if possible. If I’m sued again, I’m closing it up. I can’t risk it.

    Really? wow… hope you were able to fight it… it will be bad if MJs has to be closed…

  9. I feel a little silly getting so excited about this Alabama-Arkansas game today. If it wasn’t for Kris, I’d have no more than a vague interest, because I have no connection to either school

    Oh well… :)

  10. Really? wow… hope you were able to fight it…

    It would have cost me more to fight it. So, I paid up.

  11. Tamyra Gray will start recording her 2nd album next week. there have been alot of delays over the years . hopefully we will get it this time . she will update alot on Twitter next week.

    http://twitter.com/tamyragray

    Off 2 Miami 2day for a week of recording for the new album. ?with who u ask???? Stay tuned. I’ll b tweeting a lot this week. Happy Saturday about 4 hours ago via Osfoora for iPhone

  12. it does my heart good to see David Archuleta doing so well. as much as i wish his songs would get more airplay, i am just so happy for him that he knows how much he is adored by people. besides that gorgeous voice, he has such an awesome spirit contained in that cute little body of his.

  13. It’s official:

    MelindaWEG: Can’t hold it in anymore…It’s official we have a new client! Welcome @DavidArchie to the @WEGMusic family!! Letssss goooo

  14. Meanwhile, Cheryl Cole lookalike Cher Lloyd, 17, continues dazzles tonight. She said: “I didn’t know I wanted it this bad.”

    Oh please. I don’t care how much makeup she got on, she will never look like Cheryl even remotely.

    Can’t wait for MJ’s X-Factor postings today. It should be so bad that it is good. LOL.

    Are you kidding me ? I DVR the game just in case there is a Kris sighting or an upset. I know nothing about football and no interest in it at all. :)

  16. WEGMusic has a pretty good roster of artists.

    Ciara, Jonas Brothers, Justin Timberlake, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears & Janet Jackson

  17. Can’t wait for MJ’s X-Factor postings today. It should be so bad that it is good. LOL.

    I dunno. It’s going to hard to top the awesomeness of last year’s Jedward. Especially their doing “Oops, I Did It Again.” That was classic. Loltastically delicious.

  18. CBS didn’t show this because it was during the commercial break between quarters, but hopefully someone videoed it and will put it up on YT

    Go Hogs!! LOL! I just found out my husband and son want the Hogs to win because if they do, and the Buckeyes win, Ohio State will be number one in the conference.

    Oh, and I noticed that someone asked the other day about Kris being a Hogs fan when he went to Central Arkansas, it’s the same as my husband being an Ohio State Buckeyes fan even though he went to Bowling Green State University, if you’re a football fan, you naturally follow the biggest team in the State. :D

  22. Arkansas just made a major interception!!!

    Ratna, you’re so funny and cute!

    ETA: Congrats to Archie, it sounds like he’s in good company for management.

  23. Everyone in Arkansas is a Razorback fan. And don’t forget Katy went to UA in Fayetteville and was Homecoming Queen.

  24. connie0128, I understand there is no pro team in Arkansas either.

  25. Good for Archie, getting the management issue settled…I hope it’s a profitable association for him.

    On another note, WEGMusic? They sound very excited to welcome Archie, they have an impressive roster, and that’s great. But once upon a time on the web, *WEG* was an acronym for ‘Wicked Evil Grin’ – and that just causes me to *chuckle*.

  26. cookcricket,
    You are correct. But sports are big – we love our high school teams, too.

  27. Yep the things I do as a Kris fan.I just don’t like Sports but am watching this just because Kris is such a fan.And a chance I might see him.What a life.

  28. @KrisAllen
    Enjoying the @ArkRazorbacks game today! The atmosphere is insane!

    Arkansas Razorback football is a big deal in Arkansas. You may notice a few people who are reportedly at the game today.

    WallyLikeItIs
    Kris Allen, Jerry Jones, John Daly, allegedly Bill Clinton, Brad Homan and Whitney Hall all in the Hog house.

  31. @eeFLEURdeLIS @katyallen RT @kncalicott Kris Allen sighting at the hogs tailgate- portapotty to be exact

    damitman LMAO Of course Kris was seen by the porta potties!!

    KrisAllen Got to lead the hog call on the field too. Really cool. http://plixi.com/p/47133666

    Why do I think Kris is much more nervous about this game than he ever is when performing his music?

  33. KrisAllen I can’t handle stuff like this.

    calevis24 @Krisallen, DUDE GO IN FOR GREEN!

    @LRLittleDipper @KrisAllen You weren’t watching the AI8 finale, were you?

  34. This is so nerve racking no wonder I don’t watch Sports.

  35. Oh, Cale. Can you just see the Pocket Idol in the middle of the football field with those big guys? He’d be like that little ladybug!

  36. God what a stupid decision — and worse throw — by the Arkansas QB. Probably just blew their chance for the upset.

    Poor Kris, he’s not gonna be happy :(

  37. Ryan Mallett just proved he isn’t ready for the NFL — 3 huge mistakes in this game

  38. I know this is totally off topic but I didn’t know where else to post it. I’m sure there are still some MJ old timers around who used to watch “Rockstar”.

    Well, I was just in my kitchen making dinner, with HGTV on in the background. I was only half listening. The show was “The Antonio Treatment”. All of the sudden I heard the host mention a band named “Juke Kartel”. That was the name of Toby Rand’s group pre (and apparently post) Rockstar. Sure enough, they were making over Toby Rand’s living room! I lol’ed. He was my fav contestant that year and here he is on an HGTV makeover show.

    Just had to share! :-)

  39. I think of Kris as having nerves of steel – coming through in the clinch. I’ll NEVER forget him singing NB just after his win was announced, and it was perfect – even moving around the stage, having to lean down to shake Simon’s hand, and he didn’t miss a beat. When it’s about him, he’s in control. Sweet to know that some things make him nervous – like Arkansas football :) I think we may be alone as another thread has begun…he,he,he… so… in other Kris remarks…in the absence of current videos during his vacation, I’ve been rewatching old episodes of S8, the clips that show Kris’ results. What has struck me is immediately after the shock of getting through registers on his face, his face fills with sadness as he realizes the other person didn’t. It’s so sweet! He looks so sad and reaches out to them every time.

  40. Frog- very cute. I like the clothes question. For regular guys who just aren’t into clothing, it must be frustrating to realize that you have to be so conscious of what you wear.

    He seems tired but relaxed.

    I also like the answer to the same ol why don’t you have a girlfriend question. “Where’s a girl, where’s a girl? It will come naturally.” Amen to that.

    Thanks Jersey. My family all loved Rockstar & enjoyed watching Toby as he’s from Melbourne Australia. Juke Kartel has done quite well here – theyre a really good band for the Pub circuit!!

    Thanks for posting this! Neat interview. As someone who rarely visits the fan sites, I appreciate all the goodies you and other Archie fans regularly post on MJs.

  43. Kris with the UofA color guard at the football game today.

    Where’s Kris?

    Thanks tripp,
    Wow, Kris being photograph among girls on his vacation,..in other words same thing as when he is working doing concerts. :)

    I was expecting him to be a little bit fatter. What happened with his mama’s food. He looks skinny.

  44. pic of Kris leading crowd in the calling of the hogs

    He put so much into it , it seemed like.
    Sigh, too bad that it was soooo close for his team to winning.

    I’m sure that he will be dissapointed, but knowing him, next week he’ll entertain the troops. He will put his football team’s loss in perspective.
