This Sunday on 60 Minutes, the show will air a profile about Aerosmith and all the personal turmoil the band has endured over the past few years. In a CBS News clip posted online, interviewer Lara Logan tells Steven Tyler that his bandmates love and respect him, but that Joey Kramer also said Tyler "tortured" him, while Tom Hamilton characterized him as "unspeakably cruel." Tyler acknowledged that, "I've said many things to all those guys that I should never have said, that I didn't mean," but he also stood up for himself by explaining, "You know what? I'm going to be big-headed right now. I think my perfectionism and my busting everyone's chops is what got this band to where it is today. In the end, I get a really good song and in the end, I get the hits. Yeah, I'm that good." Despite the interpersonal drama, the band has stuck together for 40 years amid many highs and lows, and they have overcome many rifts. Today, Tyler says, "This band's better than it's ever been. It's not because I'm old now and the band's been around forever and it's our last tour. It's because this band is that good."
