Tyler launches country video

Steven Tyler has released a video for his solo track Love Is Your Name.

It’s the Aerosmith singer’s debut country music song and comes ahead of the launch of an album’s worth of similar material.

Tyler recently accepted his bandmates weren’t happy about his solo project but added: “I think we’ve got something here that the radio would love to play. That’s why I’m in it – to take the power of ‘wow’ to the 100th degree.”

Meanwhile, Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton has confirmed he’s clear from cancer again after a second battle with the disease. He reports: “There’s a guy here in Boston who does novel surgeries and was able to do a procedure that got the cancer out of my throat without having to ruin the rest of it.

“I just saw him the other day and he said, ‘You beat this one. You can keep coming to see me if you want, but I don’t think you need to worry about this cancer coming back.’

“I said, ‘I’ll come back to see you every six months from here until eternity, if it’s alright with you!’”

Aerosmith will release a live DVD in September, which was shot at last year’s Download festival. They’re currently touring North America:

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
