According to Billboard.com
, a scheduling conflict will prevent AEROSMITH's Steven Tyler from appearing at the ASCAP I Create Music Expo (the singer was announced as a keynote interview and honoree back in January) on April 18.
Instead, the rocker has committed to take part in "the first naked chat room on Google+ Hangout," he announced on April 5, adding, "Be there or be square, I don't want to hear you don't have anything to wear."
The online confab will take place on Monday, April 8, at 6:30 p.m. PST / 9:30 p.m. EST, during which Tyler will be interviewed by entertainment journalist Roger Friedman.
Tyler will answer select questions tweeted to @ASCAPEXPO and using the hashtag #AskSteven.
The reason for the cancelation: Aerosmith's Australian tour requires the band to arrive earlier. Said Tyler in a statement apologizing to Expo attendees: "Due to the lack of time travel, and the shuttle being mothballed, I can't make it in time to be with you."
