London: Aerosmith star Steven Tyler says joining American Idol as a judge caused trouble between him and other band members. The 64-year-old rocker said that he was far from being a fan of the show and had never even watched Idol, reported Contactmusic.
"I just wanted to sit next to Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson," Tyler said. "When I took Idol, it kind of shook the apple cart. Instead of being happy for me, there was a lot of jealousy, but it worked out," he added.
Luckily for Tyler and the rest of the Aerosmith crew, the band still found time to record their latest album in between shooting the reality show and they`re feeling pretty proud of themselves.
"This one has a lot of band-generated material on it. This is the first record we`ve done in a long time where the band got together and actually hammered out the arrangements and the whole vibe of each song," said guitarist Joe Perry.
