Colbie Caillat at The National, Aerosmith looks for a singer

Just Announced - Q94 / Lite 98 Christmas Show with COLBIE CAILLAT Tuesday December 8th at The National ... Tickets go on sale THIS Friday at all Ticketmaster outlets, nattickets.com, ticketstobuy.com, and The National box office. Don't know much about Colbie other than she is cute and this song is kind of fun and, well, bubbly:

Apparently Steve Tyler has left Aerosmith. I actually might have cared once. I remember the kick I got from listening to the Toys From the Attic album and trying to decipher the lyrics of "Walk This Way" (when you are 11, some of the lyrics are a bit beyond one's experience to that date). I remember the thrill when we listened to "Live Bootleg!" on the last day of school in fifth grade and couldn't believe that Steve Tyler said "motherf**cker" in the middle of "Dream On". When they came back in the late 80s - early 90s it looked like they would restore some of their glory and I thought Permanent Vacation and Pump were steps in the right direction. But then came a seemingly endless string of power ballads, the pimping of Liv Tyler in the videos (sexy but dude, its your daughter) culminating in their jump the shark moment of "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing", a song better suited for Celine Dion or Meat Loaf. From that point on, they were dead to me. So maybe breaking up is the best thing then can do and we can remember them from everything pre-1990.
