Steven Tyler is many things: Classic rock belter, sinuous frontman, father to Liv, tender-hearted American Idol judge and, of course, a complete jerk to his fellow bandmates.
The CBS interviewer confronted Tyler with some of the harsh phrases his bandmates use to describe him, from “unspeakably cruel” to “impossible to talk to.”
"They’re 100 percent right,” Tyler admitted in a rare moment of humility. “I’ve said many things to all those guys I never should have said and I did not mean.”
But seconds later, the ole Steven Tyler ego came charging back into the room.
“I think my perfectionism and my busting everyone's chops is what got this band to where it is today,” Tyler said. “In the end, I get a real good song, and in the end, I get the hits. Yeah, I'm that good."
