Backstreet Boys member A.J. McLean credits Alice and Steven Tyler as influences in a short article over at AOL music
. Says McLean "They're icons of the music industry and yet they're still dads, they're normal guys outside of work, do the same stuff we all do. And they kind of took me under their wings, like father figures, at these awards-show type of events. We can sit and talk for hours."
