Aerosmith rock star Steven Tyler will take part in a keynote interview at the 8th annual ASCAP "I Create Music" EXPO with entertainment news journalist and founder of Showbiz411.com Roger Friedman. The interview is scheduled to take place on Thursday, April 18th – the day after the rocker accepts the ASCAP Founders Award at the 30th annual ASCAP Pop Music Awards with Aerosmith bandmate Joe Perry.
In commenting on the Founders Awards, Steven Tyler stated: "To be recognized by ASCAP with the Founders Award is a huge achievement. It is humbling for Joe and me to be honored for our music alongside the likes of Stevie Wonder, Neil Young, Paul McCartney and Joni Mitchell. It's been a life-long love affair and it’s far from over. Besides, any society that lets Tom Waits in... I'm there!"
Infamous for his outrageous style and savoir faire fashion, Steven Tyler is best-known as the songwriter and voice of iconic rock band Aerosmith. He is considered one of rock’s most recognizable and dynamic frontmen and has been cited by Rolling Stone as "one of the greatest singers of all time." Further solidifying their place in history, Tyler and Aerosmith have sold more than 150 million records worldwide, won numerous prestigious awards (including multiple Grammys, American Music Awards, Billboard awards, and MTV awards) and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001. Late last year, Aerosmith unleashed its acclaimed 15th studio album Music from Another Dimension! and triumphed with two North American legs of The Global Warming Tour.
The ASCAP "I Create Music" EXPO takes place April 18-20, 2013 at the Loews Hollywood Hotel, in Los Angeles, CA. A wide-range of music creator and industry panelists will be announced soon.
