AEROSMITH Frontman Changes Managers Once Again

According to Roger Friedman of, AEROSMITH singer Steven Tyler has changed managers again. The frontman has left Union Entertainment Group — which represents NICKELBACK, CINDERELLA, LYNCH MOB, HINDER and LYNAM — and has signed with Allen Kovac of 10th Street Entertainment (MÖTLEY CRÜE, PAPA ROACH, BUCKCHERRY, DROWNING POOL).

Before signing with Union Entertainment Group, Tyler was being represented by the Boston rockers' longtime handlers, HK Management (headed up by Howard Kaufman and Trudy Green), who have managed AEROSMITH since 1999.

A recent issue of Rolling Stone magazine featured an in-depth look at the rift between Steven Tyler and the rest of AEROSMITH, including interviews with guitarists Joe Perry and Brad Whitford, plus drummer Joey Kramer, in which they spoke openly about their relationship with Tyler and their plans for the group's future.

Tyler has been estranged from the band since August, when he fell from a stage in South Dakota and forced the group to cancel the rest of its summer tour.

The other members have revealed that none of them have had any contact with Tyler in months. Whitford and Kramer have hinted that they think Tyler might be using drugs again.

The Rolling Stone article also hints at musical differences between Tyler, who prefers to record radio-friendly pop hits, and the rest of the band, who want to get back to their harder-rocking roots.
