He's not a great singer, but has a niche with Aerosmith and that kind of music...and he's getting older and some voices don't age well. Have you heard Carole King lately?? OMG, she should really not sing, lol.
Ah I've heard worse. He's an old rocker with a tired voice but he gave it a good effort. Aerosmith has been a part of our culture for more than 30 years. He's not a songbird like the gal who sang it before the NFC game but he is certainly more socially relevant. And he gave it a good effort.
I don't think he had any intention of disrespecting the NA, he is who he is.... Sang it like he did and it suited me just fine! I could relate and personally I believe the world could use a little more reality!
Extremely difficult to listen to. Sorry. I'm an Aerosmith fan. The dude (who does not look like a lady but a monkey) should have refused the 'unplugged' rendition. His is a voice needing a back-up band. Ridiculous choice.
