Tyler Yet To Confirm Aero-Split
It seems that the Aerosmith story that appeared on the Classic Rock website has taken a life of its own and spread faster than a rampant STD, appearing on sites all over the world, especially in the US where, since Tyler’s dramatic stage exit a few months ago, the band have enjoyed a new life as media darlings.
Judging by a story in the Las Vegas Sun Joe Perry was door-stepped coming off a long-haul flight from Aerosmith’s triumphant show in Abu Dhabi (read the review in next month’s Classic Rock) where he seems to have interpreted the now famous “Brand Tyler” quote as being a signal from the singer that he was on his his way out.
Classic Rock can only say that when Steven Tyler spoke exclusively to our intrepid reporter Peter Makowski, he in no way indicated that he was leaving the band, and just stated that he wanted to spend some time out to record a solo album and promote his forthcoming autobiography Does The Noise In My Head Bother You.
It’s Aerosmith’s 40th anniversary next year and one would hope that there are some pretty special events lined up.
Since the story broke though, there has been radio silence on both sides of the camp. We do know that Perry, Tyler, Whitford and Kramer will or already have got together to discuss their future before Joe embarks on a solo tour of the West Coast.
As for Tyler, Makowski sent an email requesting a follow-up interview to his management and was told: “Regretfully, Steven has had to return to the east coast quickly and immerse himself into some time-sensitive endeavours that require his full attention for the next days leading into the Thanksgiving holiday. He asked me to pass along his regards and we’ll look to bounce back to you as soon as appropriate time permits.”
We shall of course keep you posted.
