"Dream On": Is Aerosmith Without Steven Tyler Still Aerosmith?

Posted By on Tue, Nov 10, 2009 at 10:38 AM

Yesterday, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry did what so many band managers and record labels must have nightmares about: He Tweeted the inside scoop on the band's affairs—in this case, that frontman Steven Tyler is retiring from Aerosmith.

The following Tweets are from about 20 hours ago, verbatim (as in, crappy spelling intact; maybe Billie should be doing the Tweeting):

*Aerosmith is definetly NOT breaking up. One of the members is doing his own thing and said so in the press. That's all I know.

*Inthe meantime aerosmith is positivly looking for a new singer to work with. You just can't take 40 years of expiriance and throwitinthebin!

*Billies spelling much better than mine. Band is playing hotter than ever and our songs need to be played live! Don't dispair.

*Aerosmith not splitting up. Promise that's the last you'll hear from me on the subject till we gear up again.

Rumors of the breakup started circulating when, during an interview with British rock mag Classic Rock, Tyler suggested he was going solo. "I don’t know what I’m doing yet," Tyler said, "but it’s definitely going to be something Steven Tyler: working on the brand of myself - Brand Tyler.”

Word is that Aerosmith will keep on rocking—they're looking to replace Tyler.

Keep in mind that in August, Tyler fell off a stage during a concert and hit his head, canceling several dates following. When you watch the video, notice Perry never once walks over to see if Tyler is OK. Maybe more than Tyler's skull was cracked that night.
