    Steven Tyler plans to work on his solo album during Aerosmith downtime -- not because he is dissatisfied or not fully satisfied by his work in the band, but because he wants to use musical ideas that don't fit his main band instead of foisting them on Aerosmith. Smart move, Stevie! We meant Steven.

    He is also planning to have his knee replaced. He has battled knee problems for a while. He told Rolling Stone, "My knee is giving out. I had ACL reconstructions, and in November I'm getting knee replacement surgery. It'll take me about three or four months to recover... I've had so many operations on my knees and feet that just to be standing is a miracle. But to turn around and do one of my spins where I don't fall, that's the shit! But hey, all these years have taken their toll on me."

    That sounds painful, but necessary!

    What is your favorite Aerosmith song of all time?
