Tyler II

At least it wasn't Ben Affleck. It's bad enough that Boston magazine and newcomer Boston Common (yes, the Web site still has photo of Affleck on the dummy cover for the first issue) will be battling over high end advertisers.

In what appears to be quite a coincidence, both publications also feature the same celeb -- Aerosmith's Steven Tyler -- on their current covers. Boston Common might have technically gotten there first since the magazine was officially released at a party last Wednesday and Boston didn't hit the newsstands before this past weekend. But Boston editor Jon Marcus says the cover was months in the making, explaining that the oil painting of Tyler for the Boston cover was commissioned in July. And he says that by the time he read about Boston Common's Tyler cover choice in local gossip columns, "we were already at the press."

Still, a larger questions looms. Doesn't Boston have a fresher music icon than someone born the same year that Warren Spahn and Johnny Sain were leading the Boston Braves to the World Series?
