Steven Tyler has admitted that he has been a ruthless taskmaster with his Aerosmith bandmembers over the years. In a new interview with the 60 Minutes television program, the rocker reveals that he can have a mean streak with his bandmates but that it serves a purpose.
"You know what? I'm going to be big-headed right now, OK? I think my perfectionism and my busting everyone's chops is what got this band to where it is today. In the end, I get a really good song and in the end, I get the hits. Yeah, I'm that good," he says in the interview.
Although his bandmates rate his personality anywhere from "extremely demanding" to "unspeakably cruel," they also recognize the method in his madness:
"When you ask what makes the band great, I think that it's a combination of all of us, Steven making it greater," says Joey Kramer.
