Steven Tyler (Aerosmith) and Nuno Bettencourt (Extreme)are part of a tribute album for Muscle Shoals Sound Studio. It features various artists. The album “Muscle Shoals: Small Town, Big Town” will be released on September 28th. You can pre-order it here. Tyler and Bettencourt have teamed up to do The Rolling Stones Brown Sugar. I think Tyler should have left this one alone. Bettencourt does a fine job, the background singers are fine etc. But Tyler’s vocals are not what they should be. The song isn’t raw or edgy like the original was. Maybe you need to have that youthful cockiness The Stones had then. In any case, I didn’t enjoy this one. The video isn’t anything special but enhance your listening pleasure. Listen to it below.
