Aerosmith Bassist Confirms Steven Tyler Will Join American Idol

'American Idol' producers remain tight-lipped about rumors that Steven Tyler will join the show's judging panel, but Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton says the gig is already a done deal.

"Steven is doing American Idol. The ink is dry on that," Hamilton tells The Star-Ledger. "So, we'll have to work around his schedule for a new record."

"I hope it doesn't hurt the new momentum we've built up on this tour, because that's been so important for us as a band. But I wouldn't want to be the one standing in the way of this for him."

"Steven is someone who absolutely lives to be in front of an audience, and the people closest to him know how witty and entertaining he can be. I don't know if 'American Idol' will be rock 'n' roll enough for him, but it is an opportunity for millions of people to see another side of Steven Tyler."

Fox and producers Freemantle Media North America and 19 Entertainment have not commented on the report.
