Latest news from Download is that Aerosmith will be appearing at Download Festival 2010 and, get this… Steve Tyler will be frontman once more. The troubled vocalist seems to be on the mend and hopefully the band can put their recent troubles behind them. The public spat between Tyler and guitarist Joe Perry led to massive speculation amongst the media and the blogosphere about who would replace Tyler (Chris Cornell, Billy Idol, Sammy Hagar, Paul Rodgers) and whether or not Aerosmith without Tyler would actually even BE Aerosmith (it wouldn’t – much as I rate the rest of the band). According to this Classic Rock Magazine story, Download organisers have booked Aerosmith with the condition that Tyler is frontman once more. Hurrah for Download again!
In other news, Rage Against the Machine will also join the lineup, which includes headliners AC/DC returning for the 30th Anniversary of their Monsters of Rock appearance. AC/DC have apparently announced that they will appear on the Friday evening and so RATM will probably appear on Saturday with Aerosmith closing the festival on the Sunday evening (Download 2010 runs from 11-13 June 2010).
