Steven Tyler quit?

Post by Trick on Tue 10 Nov 2009, 8:20 am

Courtesy of NME.com - Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has said that singer Steven Tyler has quit the band "as far as I can tell."

Perry's comments follow those of rhythm guitarist Brad Whitford, who last week (November 6) said that Aerosmith are to hold crisis talks about their future after relations with Tyler became strained.

Now Perry has confirmed that Tyler is unlikely to perform with the band again.

"Steven quit as far as I can tell," he told the Las Vegas Sun, adding that the singer "has had no contact with me or the other band members."

The past few months have blighted with problems for Aerosmith. In August Tyler was airlifted to hospital after falling offstage at a gig in Dakota. As a result, the band were forced to cancel a U.S. tour.

Reacting to Tyler's supposed departure, Perry vowed to carry on with Aerosmith. He echoed Whitford's recent comments by saying he is considering replacing Tyler with a new vocalist.

"Right now I'm adjusting to how we're going to go on," Perry explained. "Aerosmith is such a powerful band, I mean it's like a steam locomotive. You just can't disregard 40 years of four guys who play together as well as they do.

"As far as replacing Steve, it's not just about that, it's also four guys that play extremely well together, and I'm not going to see that go to waste. I really don't know what path it's going to take at this point, but we'll probably find somebody else that will sing in those spots where we need a singer."

In a recent interview with Classic Rock magazine, Tyler said he wants to concentrate on "Brand Tyler."

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry upset at frontman Steven Tyler
-Band cancelled their US tour after frontman Tyler fell offstage

NME.com wrote:Aerosmith's guitarist Joe Perry has spoken of his irritation that the band have been forced to cancel their US and Canadian tour after frontman Steven Tyler fell offstage in August.

Perry said he was "upset" that the band had cancelled the tour, and explained that he has hardly spoken to the frontman since his accident.

"I haven't talked to him in over five weeks," he told the Associated Press. "I don't know what's going on with him. I hear he's getting better, but I don't know I really don't know what's going on with him."

Tyler's fall left him with injuries to his back and left shoulder.

Perry went on to state that he thinks Tyler needs to "get his act together" as the duo haven't written a song together in the last decade.

"All I know is he's got to get his act together. I mean, he and I haven't written a song together alone in the same room in over ten years, so there's been some changes in paradigm of what Aerosmith is," he said.

Last month, Tyler denied that there were any troubles in the band, telling Rolling Stone, "Shit's good".
