Steven Tyler on Returning to American Idol: “I’d Be a Mentor”

We already miss the crazy antics and cryptic quotes of former American Idol judge Steven Tyler, but would the Aerosmith frontman ever consider returning to the show?

Yes, but not as a judge.

Steven told E! News that he’d potentially revisit Idol as a mentor. “I loved that fact that you could go through 700 people, and out of that, you really can pick someone that has talent, because they have to audition anyway,” he said.

The singer also confessed that taking the judging gig two years without consulting his bandmates definitely affected their relationship.

“We got into a lot of ya-ya because of tumult that happens in a band,” he explained. “Sometimes stuff doesn’t get talked out quite properly, but it always turns out as songs down the line anyway.”

Way to look at the bright side, Steven!
