Aerosmith to Move on Without Tyler

Posted by Ace Staff on November 10th, 2009

Frontman Steven Tyler has recently announced his departure from rock band Aerosmith and hopes to pursue a solo career in the near future. After performing with the group for over 40 years, Tyler believes it’s in his best interest to take on the music scene as a one man show, saying he’s “working on the brand of myself, Brand Tyler.” Since the shocking news became public earlier this week, the rest of the band has actively been in search for a possible replacement. Guitarist Joe Perry said on his Twitter account Monday that “Aerosmith is definitely NOT breaking up…one of the members is doing his own thing and said so in the press.” There have already been rumors in regards to what artists qualify to step in Tyler’s shoes. So far it’s circulated for Gary Cherone (Extreme), Adam Lambert (American Idol runner-up), and Kid Rock as potential candidates. Perry has also found a singer named “Hagen” on You Tube for his latest solo product, which could also be the route the band chooses to find an appropriate fit.

Listen to Bon Jovi’s ‘The Circle’

Posted by Ace Staff on November 10th, 2009

Bon Jovi’s newest album “The Circle” is now available both online and in stores. In 2008 when Jon Bon Jovi and guitarist Richie Sambora met to discuss plans about a greatest hits album, the project progressively turned into a ton of new material. “We went to the record company and said, ‘Well, we’ve got good news and bad news,’” said Sambora. “‘The bad news is you’re not getting a greatest hits. The good news is you’re going to have a great studio album.’”To further promote ”The Circle” members Jovi, Sambora, David Bryan, Tico Torres and Hugh McDonald will be touring all over the world starting in February. They are scheduled to play at numerous U.S. venues for the majority of 2010 (including a July 24th gig at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, MA) before taking off for a heavy set of shows overseas. Don’t miss one of the greatest bands of all time! Purchase your tickets right here with us at Ace when Bon Jovi comes to your area!
