The 45-year-old rocker revealed that he was 'flattered' to be considered as the choice to take over from Tyler, who left the legendary band earlier this year. But the 'Stillness of Heart' hitmaker insisted on his Twitter page he could never replace Tyler.
"As much as I am flattered that Aerosmith's camp would consider me to front the band, Steven Tyler is a family friend, and no voice could ever take the place of his," the Daily Star quoted him as saying. "I hope the band stays together. They are classic," he added.
