This Oct. 10, 2011 photo released by Fox shows "American Idol" judge Steven Tyler during auditions for the singing competition series in San Diego. Tyler, who quit the show, admits he liked the paychecks, but had a love-hate relationship with the show. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Tyler says the series is “not my cup of tea.” Tyler tells the magazine he took the job because it was a good way to pass the time while he and his band mates worked out their behind-the-scenes conflicts. He also says he didn't have it in him to be negative to contestants. (AP Photo/Fox, Michael Becker)
