Todd Not Interested In Aerosmith Role

Punk star JOSH TODD has ruled himself out of the race to replace Steven Tyler in Aerosmith, insisting he wouldn't take the job if it was offered to him.
The Buckcherry frontman recently topped a Rolling Stone magazine readers poll to find the perfect Tyler replacement, but he doesn't want the gig.
Todd says, "He’s been a huge inspiration for me and Buckcherry but I truly believe that no one can take his place... I am the singer of Buckcherry and we are currently hard at work on the next record."
The rocker would rather see Tyler rejoin his bandmates and scrap plans for a lengthy hiatus: "Hopefully they patch things up. Hopefully we will see an Aerosmith/Buckcherry tour in the future."
Aerosmith stars Joe Perry and Brad Whitford have made it clear they won't be waiting for Tyler - and they plan to forge on with plans to tour and record new material in 2010 with a new frontman.
Lenny Kravitz previously withdrew his name from the job search after former Geffen Records executive John Kalodner, the man behind the legendary group's 1980s comeback, recently urged crestfallen Aerosmith bandmembers to sign the rock star to take over from Tyler.
In a post, Kravitz wrote, "As much as I am flattered that Aerosmith's camp would consider me to front the band, Steven Tyler is a family friend, and no voice could ever take the place of his. I hope the band stays together. They are classic."
