Rumour Of The Week: Hagar To Join Aerosmith

Is Sammy Hagar going to replace Steven Tyler as Aerosmith’s frontman?
Earlier this week Classic Rock heard the news that the Chickenfoot (and former Montrose/Van Halen) singer had agreed to sing with the Boston band on a forthcoming world tour.

Carter reponded: “Good authority must mean The Enquirer because his Led Zep gig conflicts with the Aerosmith job.
“Seriously, Sam is very happy to be going into the studio with Chickenfoot to start the second album in April.”
The Aerosmith camp declined to comment.
