The December 10, 2009 issue of Rolling Stone had an in-depth report about Aerosmith's recent implosion and their plan to replace Steven Tyler with a new singer. Here's more from the interviews RS conducted for the story with guitarist Joe Perry, drummer Joey Kramer, guitarist Brad Whitford and the band's former A&R rep John Kalodner, who helped mastermind their late-Eighties comeback. Kalodner even shared an idea for how the band can carry on: "I was talking to Marty Frederiksen the other night about this just because he co-wrote 'Jaded' and worked with them for the last 10 years or so," he says. "We were talking about how no one can replace Steven Tyler, but the only person he said and I agreed with that could even make Aerosmith anything would be Lenny Kravitz."
