kidrock1 Kid Rock Rips Steven Tyler For American Idol Gig

Apparently [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Steven Tyler[/lastfm]‘s new American Idol gig isn’t “Rock Star” enough for [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kid Rock[/lastfm].  We would tend to agree, actuallly.

[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kid Rock [/lastfm]has lashed out at [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Aerosmith[/lastfm] frontman [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Steven Tyler [/lastfm]for his decision to join the judges panel on American Idol. During a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the Born Free rocker says that Tyler has betrayed his rockstar status with the decision.

“It’s the stupidest thing he’s ever done in his life,” Rock says in the interview. “[Steven] is a sacred American institution of rock ‘n’ roll, and he just threw it all out the window. [He] just stomped on it and set it on fire.”

This season Tyler steps into one of the gaps left by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Ellen DeGeneres[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kara DioGuardi [/lastfm]and creator [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Simon Cowell[/lastfm]. And though Tyler maintains that he will remain active in the band while working on American Idol, Kid questions his decision making. “We should bring back the guillotine, or whatever they call that thing. And if [Steven made the decision] himself, he needs some serious counseling. I love him to death, but I gotta speak the truth,” he concludes.
