STEVEN TYLER To Join Forces With JEDWARD On 'Walk This Way' Cover?

May 23, 2011

According to The Sun, JEDWARD the Irish pop rap duo led by identical twins John Paul Henry Daniel Richard Grimes and Edward Peter Anthony Kevin Patrick Grimes is in talks with Steven Tyler about teaming up for a cover version of AEROSMITH's classic '70s song "Walk This Way".

A source tells The Sun: "JEDWARD never thought someone like Steve would join forces with them and on such a massive song. But it looks likely to happen. The excitement has sent them into a spin."

In 1986, RUN-D.M.C. helped revitalize AEROSMITH's career by covering "Walk This Way". The seemingly unlikely collaboration also helped break rap into mainstream pop music, as it was the first rap song to make the Top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
