Steven Tyler: My music era is over

American Idol has changed rocker Steven Tyler's views on making it in the music business.

"I wish I could represent for my era but my era's over," the new judge insisted, speaking before a special Q&A with fans of the show at PaleyFest in Beverly Hills.

He said earnestly: "The way it was back then isn't how it is now. It's all about however you can get heard, get it out there. You've gotta have the right song and you better be good."

Despite his initial reluctance to take over from Simon Cowell on the high-profile show, which is watched by millions around the world, the Aerosmith singer seems to be enjoying his new role as a judge alongside Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson.

"I didn't want to," he admits. "I'd only watched it a couple of times and thought 'what kind of c*** is this?' I didn't allow myself to get emotionally involved.

"I didn't think anyone could be an idol because of a game show. I didn't realise that what it really is about Idol is the ownership of the American people watching these kids, getting passionately into their characters and watching whoever they love come out of the worm hole or not.

"Forty million people watch it and like to vote because they become emotionally involved like I do."
