Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton told The Boston Herald that frontman and new ‘American Idol’ judge Steven Tyler will exercise incredible time management skills when juggling his old job and new one. Hamilton told the paper that the 62-year-old singer has the energy to sustain both jobs.

“Steven’s been very emphatic in saying that the way his time is arranged on the show leaves room to work on a record,” Hamilton said over the weekend. “He’s been taking great pains to remind everybody of that, so hopefully that’s the way it will come out.”

Guitarist Joe Perry hasn’t been as optimistic about Tyler taking the ‘Idol’ job. He even intimated that the band could find a new singer and keep going without any lag time. Hamilton did say that he believes that Tyler’s new gig does create the potential for more friction and in-fighting among the already volatile band.

“There’s a lot of not knowing what’s going to happen, but that’s how it’s always been for us,” Hamilton said. “I’m not sitting here thinking that is not going to work for us. Steven is an incredible ‘I can do anything’ kind of guy. But he’s taken a big bite, and I’m looking forward to seeing him chew it.”
