Aerosmith's Steven Tyler joined ASCAP for a Google+ Hangout, presented by ole, on Monday, April 8th at 6:30pm PST/9:30pm EST. The legendary vocalist and songwriter was interviewed by entertainment journalist and Founder of showbiz411.com Roger Friedman in a live online video chat. Tyler also answered select questions Tweeted to @ASCAPEXPO, using the hashtag #AskSteven.

The start date of Aerosmith's Australian tour unexpectedly moved up, forcing Tyler to cancel his appearance at the 8th Annual ASCAP "I Create Music" EXPO, scheduled for April 18th-20th, 2013 at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles. Tyler wanted to make sure that EXPO attendees still had a chance to hear about his creative process and interact with him in a live setting.


Tyler commented: "Due to the lack of time travel, and the shuttle being mothballed, I can't make it in time to be with you at the EXPO. I will however, be online live, taking your questions, in the first naked chat room on Google+ Hangout. Be there or be square, I don't want to hear you don't have anything to wear."
