Dad’s sched­ule ham­pers duet

Townsville Bulletin - - The Goss -

AERO­SMITH front­man Steven Tyler is an iconic rock star and Amer­i­can Idol host.

His daugh­ter Liv Tyler is one of Hol­ly­wood’s most wanted lead­ing ladies. Their busy sched­ules are the main rea­son they have never recorded a duet.

‘‘ We sing all the time to­gether. We al­ways talk about do­ing some­thing to­gether,’’ Liv Tyler said while pro­mot­ing her up­com­ing dark com­edy Su­per.

‘‘ Some­times when he is in the stu­dio he’ll say ’ come down and sing backup’ or ‘ sing with me on this song.’ But I’m usu­ally some­where else, and our sched­ules make it so hard to meet up,’’ she said.

De­spite the sched­ul­ing dif­fi­cul­ties, Tyler said she is glad her fa­ther took the sec­ond job moon­light­ing on Amer­ica’s most watched TV show.

‘‘ I’m not par­tic­u­larly fa­mil­iar with Amer­i­can Idol as a whole, I’ve seen it a cou­ple of times, but I feel re­ally happy for my dad that he’s do­ing some­thing he loves and some­thing dif­fer­ent,’’ she said.

‘‘ It has been re­ally in­ter­est­ing for me be­cause my whole life, es­pe­cially in Amer­ica, peo­ple re­late to and re­ally love Aero­smith. I’ll be pulled over by a cop and they’ll say ‘ oh tell your dad if he ever needs a new gui­tar player like here’s my card’ or peo­ple re­ally love Aero­smith and I was used to that, but now I’m ex­pe­ri­enc­ing some­thing so dif­fer­ent.’’

Tyler said the Idol gig has let more of the world get to know her fa­mous dad.
