Tyler has tapped the Norwegian-born, Los Angeles-based director and photographer Ray Kay (real name: Reinert K. Olsen) to helm the video. The video shoot will take place in Los Angeles and will feature “a lovely, sexy summer feel. “I’ve always been a fan of Aerosmith,” Kay says. “(so) I am really looking forward to working with (Steven). This video will probably get extra attention in both the United States since it is (Tyler’s) debut as a solo artist, and since he is a judge on ‘American Idol’, and the video will be premiered there.” Ray has previously created sleek cinematic music videos for music’s biggest stars, such as Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Beyonce, Diddy and Enrique Iglesias. His love of music combined with a strong sense of fashion and eye for beauty has earned him numerous video awards.
–The new issue of Rolling Stone, is out now and includes an in-depth cover story on Steven Tyler by writer Brian Hiatt, who finds the Aerosmith frontman overflowing with positive energy.
“I’m really lucky right now,” Tyler says as he hikes to a edge of a Laurel Canyon cliff. “I’m on top of the world: I’m Hollywood’s little fuckin’ sweetheart, basically.” In the story, Tyler talks about his motivation for signing on as an American Idol judge – a move he made after his bandmates threatened to throw him out of Aerosmith. “Did I take this job to show the band?” he says. “Fuck, yeah. Not to show them, but that I can’t be held hostage anymore. I will be my own hostage. The band can’t throw me out.”
In the article profile Steven talks about doing drugs again back in 2008 with Joe Perry, his American Idol judging, new Aerosmith tunes and the gig he turned down with Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham.
Here’s footage from the Rolling Stone photo shoot, with Steven talking about his past Rolling Stone covers, his new book and American Idol:
Steven is also on the cover of the latest issue of People magazine. He says in the story, “If you think going out in front of high-def cameras and millions of people I’m not high on adrenaline, you’re crazy, I’m stoned when that curtain drops,” adds Tyler, 63. “I just don’t snort the curtain dropping. I don’t snort J. Lo either, though I do breathe her in.”
