Has Steven Tyler Quit Aerosmith????

| Filed under: Music MinuteSuper Seniors

Multiple reports are claiming that Steven Tyler has quit his position as lead singer of the legendary rock band, Aerosmith!

Old Man Tyler encountered a slew of injuries this year, including a broken shoulder in August after tumbling off the stage while performing, and guitarist Joe Perry says the two weren't in contact for a full month after the accident!

Perry has informed reporters that Tyler has "quit as far as I can tell."

He continues: "I don't know any more than you do about it. I got off the plane two nights ago. I saw online that Steven said that he was going to leave the band. I don't know for how long, indefinitely or whatever. Other than that, I don't know."

Sorta sketchy!

Perry explained that Tyler has been avoiding the group's phone calls for months now, but Joe has "learned to live with it."

"Frankly, the last few months I've been wanting not to rock the boat. I don't want him cancelling any more gigs," tells Joe. "We just kind of didn't want to call him out or anything and get him anymore pissed off, for whatever reason. So we just let things lie."

Perry says Aerosmith has all plans to continue without Tyler and are looking for a new singer, not to replace Steven, rather to "move the Aerosmith… vibe up a notch."

What do U think???

Can it even be considered Aerosmith without Steven Tyler???

    Areosmith WAS a great band! How old are these guys now??60s? Maybe its time to start giving guitar lessons or something instead of touring. They made some great rock though.



  2. 2

    i would be more then happy to take his place ..robins getting annoying



  3. 3

    Sure. Journey did it why not Aerosmith?



  4. 4

    No Steven no Aerosmith. Hope it's not true.



  5. 5

    Aerosmith is NOT Aerosmith without Steven Tyler…



  6. 6

    Maybe you can use your influence and get Sliimy to replace him, Pumpkinhead.

    Hellz no. Without Steven Tyler, Aerosmith is dead. But hey, they had a good run.



  8. 8

    NO



  9. 9

    Perez, Aerosmith was rocking out years before you were even a hefty load shot in your mom's poon. Don't pretend you're the authority on who still has what it takes to remain a band.



  10. 10

    IF STEVEN TYLER LEAVES AEROSMITH I WILL SHIT A BRICK, BECAUSE NO NO NO THEY WILL NOT BE AEROSMITH ANYMORE!!!



  11. 11

    No. No. No. No.
    No one can ever replace Steven Tyler.
    This is fucked up man…

    It is not like they have been together for only a decade or so, they have been together for nearly 4 decades and have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. No Tyler means no more Aerosmith. Please don't ruin the history by plugging in some random singer. If the show must go on take on a new name and keep on rockin'.
    Just a final thought Aerosmith has come back from volatile times in the past so don't count the band completely out just yet.

    Re: Cashmere Jay – LOL Sliimy



  15. 15

    Who cares, they`re 90 years old and they suck and have always sucked and Steven Tyler is amnoying as hell just like his goofy actress from nepotism daughter.



  16. 16

    Get Adam Lambert. Yeah, I said it. Adam can totally nail Tyler's voice.



  17. 17

    Will never be anywhere near as successful without Tyler



  18. 18

    Sounds cool. I'd love to see Aerosmith play at my local dive bar. Can't imagine that they could fill up anything bigger than that without Tyler. The Joe Perry Project doesn't exactly fill up arenas, you know.



  19. 19

    Re: Naomid – THEY HAVE ALWAYS SUCKED?????..are you SERIOUS??? Hold old are you??? lemme guess…15???…you obviously know shit about great rock bands in America if you think Aerosmith has always sucked..dumbass.



  20. 20

    Re: Naomid – You're an idiot.



  21. 21

    Re: Gitchiyaya – Acutally, being an Aerosmith for over ten years (I'm 22), I wouldn't mind Adam Lambert being lead. Totally down for that.



  22. 22

    No way, Steven Tyler can never be replaced! He is Aerosmith!



  23. 23

    Goodbye to a great band!



  24. 24

    Very sad indeed. No Tyler, no Aerosmith. The end of an era, but they had a good run of it. I will miss them very much.



  25. 25

    please dont hire eddie van halen or dave cherone



  26. 26

    Steven, Steven, Steven. Two words: Axl Rose….Whatever happened to that guy?



  27. 27

    Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!



  28. 28

    i don't think anyone has topped aerosmith. Steven Tyler beats Mick Jagger every time.

  29. midi says – reply to this

    time to lay it to rest. tyler might just be too busted up to tour, so joe can carry on with his solo gigs… no areosmith without tyler.



  30. 30

    That man has the widest mouth in history… seriously he should be in the Guiness World Record book… that being said, no one can replace Steven Tyler in Aerosmith like others have said, he IS the band!

  31. *Jem* says – reply to this


    31

    Tyler has always been an ahole. Perry has always been the cool one in the group



  32. 32

    Re: rinzler – Sliimy is at the very least well qualified to sing Dude Looks Like a Lady.



  33. 33

    Hope it's not true



  34. 34

    I think they should call Adam Lambert. He'd be awesome.



  35. 35

    "move ther vibe up a notch'? More like in the gutter. No Tyler..no Aerosmith.



  36. 36

    It's all over,if he leaves. Steven Tyler IS Aerosmith!
    It had to end sooner or later. I think the guys all need to retire.
    I'll miss them but I have a lot of their music. I hope they all do good at whatever comes next for them.

    37

    Steven Tyler can't be replaced… that would be liking trying to replace Paul McCartney or John Lennon from the Beatles: it just wouldn't work.



  38. 38

    aerosmith would be NOTHING without tyler…. :( i hope he doesnt quit.



  39. 39

    lol @ the people saying adam lambert should take his place, why not? xD



  40. 40

    Why is Steven being such a diva? I agree, no Tyler, no Aerosmith.



  41. 41

    Areosmith has always been a top rock band. Over 40 years together is a long time and all of the number 1's to beat that. But, Steven Tyler is what makes Areosmith the group that it is and without him they will not be successful. Maybe Steven is ready to just enjoy the rest of his life. Obviously touring is taking it's toll on him. Just leave him alone, get a new name, new band members and go for it. But you should not use the name Areosmith without Steven Tyler.



  42. 42

    How can he quit after 100 years? He'll always be recognized as Aerosmith!



  43. 43

    Wasn't he caught on security cameras at a liquor store recently??

    he's probably back on the bottle and pills thanks to the pain meds he was given for his injuries.

    most probable reason for disappearing. they should check it out. could save his life.



  44. 44

    umm, i don't understand. according to their website they just played a show a few days ago…

  45. @v@ says – reply to this


    45

    Uhm, then why doesn't Perry go SEE him in person? Make sure he's o.k.? Wow, talk of moving on with a replacement sure seems premature and sudden, and how to have your long time buddy's back…IF these attributed comments were actually uttered at all. A good band has each other's backs no matter what, but especially when one member encounters temporary (OR longer term) misfortune. That's why I love Def Leppard to the ends of the earth.

  46. @v@ says – reply to this


    46

    Re: Swear to ME! – Wow. That's quite a jump. Man goes into a liquor store (happens every day), so he MUST be on the bottle, and pills too, no less. That's a perfect example of what's wrong with blogs nowadays. People don't use their heads; they only use their lowest base nastiness and post that first. That's not to say that he isn't in a lot of pain still and may be trying to control it.
    Tyler has already demonstrated what a pit pony he is, for decades, and this injury is just another burp in his timeline. It does take a little longer to heal at his age. Patience and loyalty are virtues. Aerosmith without Tyler's signature vocals is like Queen without Freddy. Paul Rogers is amazing, but no cigar. The brilliance of Aerosmith is the sound that happens as each of them contribute to that whole. Perry is O.K., but without Tyler, I predict forgettable. Heck, even the tunes out of Aerosmith are not what they were, but fans pay tribute to the entirety and longevity that constitutes Aerosmith. I wish Steven Tyler well and that he takes care of himself, and works the physio hard to get it back and rock on.



  47. 47

    haha….i just adore it when bands think they'll be better and bigger, without their leadman….

    Baaah. This article is unresearched. Aerosmith just played as the headlining act at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Oct. 31/Nov. 1, 2009, Tyler AND Perry present.
    Glad to hear it. Isn't this Grand Prix the one that was snatched from Montreal?



  49. 49

    nooooo this CANT be true!!!! i loooooove aerosmith… :( steven tyler, dont do this



  50. 50

    If Journey did it, why not Aerosmith? If they hire an awesome, charismatic, young, new singer, then s***w Steven Tyler… the last thing that a rock band needs is a DIVA, so bye steven.. hello new singer :)



  51. 51

    no steven tyler there is no aerosmith as far as im concerned…boooooo



  52. 52

    Um, that picture gives me the creeps.



  53. 53

    It wasn't Aerosmith w/o Joe and it isn't w/o Steven, and the same goes for Brad, Joey and Tom

  54. fiera says – reply to this


    54

    What the hell is going on with Steven? Please don't break up!!!!!!!!



  55. 55

    No, it can't be considered Aerosmith without Tyler. That's the reality facing a lot of bands. The lead singer is the show. It's like Journey with out Steve Perry . . . Ain't working. I have no idea why people want to continue seeing the Rolling Stones. Now that is a group that is dead, but will continue as long as it can sell ticket$$$$.



  56. 56

    They'll be better without him. They're my hometown band and in Southeastern Massachusetts we have a real soft spot for them. HOWEVER, I saw them perform in mid-October at a private event in San Francisco and there was something very wrong with Steven Tyler. He appeared to be either high on coke (they zoomed in on his nose and it had some residue, or so it seemed) or completely drugged up on pills. He wasn't finishing the lines in songs and his voice just sounded horrible.



  57. 57

    NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I Love Aerosmith. . .



  58. 58

    Steven without Aerosmith=Obscurity. Aerosmith without Tyler=Playing oldies shows every summer with Journey and Styx.



  59. 59

    Steven Tyler has relapsed into alcoholism and drug addiction. Pray for him. He is in big trouble.



  60. 60

    how have htye not talked in a month? they just had a concert in abu dhabi last week.



  61. 61

    Ehhh…Stevie has his panties up in a bunch…he'll get over it…I've been rocking out with Aerosmith since the 70's…..he's just getting to be a cranky old crotch! Aerosmith would NEVER survive without the bastard unfortunately.



  62. 62

    FUCK U COCOBALLS!!! They are the greatest band EVER!!! They have their problems just like everyone, no need to pick them apart and call them names like OLD—when you are OLD–no one will care, fuckface and body like a limp worm. I HATE U!!!!!!!!



  63. 63

    Re: SWEETPIECE! – No goodbyes, PLEASE!!!! They will always be the best–and I respect you enough to know you will not let perez the fuckin monkey boy let us be influenced by his negative opinions!!



  64. 64


  65. 65

    Aerosmith without steven tyler is like the video crazy not reminding me of a mama



  66. 66

    Re: musicinmyhead23 – hmm just right now inferior superior complex



  67. 67

    It's been a bad kept secret that Tyler fell off the wagon awhile ago. Tyler + drugs = fuckery for Aerosmith. Hopefully he'll get it together soon or it really will be the end of Aerosmith cause dude will be dead.



  68. 68

    I never liked these fools to begin with haha Not too relevant this days and the only people that care are those familiar with the music…That Filipino that is a the lead singer of Journey is one bad dude…haha He is the real deal, I like…Plus it shows these arrogant ego that eventually other people catch up to you or they move on…



  69. 69

    I have been a Aerosmith fan for over 20 years. My mom raised me to them and they have been a big part of my life. I am still alive because of them! Whatever is going on with the band I hope that they can work things out!!!!!



  70. 70

    Hello, they may not have spoken on phone?? but Aerosmith just played 2 shows in Hawaii in lateOctober…



  71. 71

    saw them in phoenix a while ago-they sucked monkey balls. maybe it would be good for them to re-group. i agree, lambert would be a great front man for joe perry and crew.



  72. 72

    NO I dont understand y he would quit. They are awesome and he is Aerosmith. It wouldnt be the same, his voice is very unique. Its like when Motely Crue went without Vince Neil for awhile they bombed. Without all original members it will never be or feel the same.



  73. 73

    :(( noooo this can't be true…i will die if they break up…even though i'm only 18 i'm their biggest fan…and i just want to see them live…just one time…please i beg them to come to romania



  74. 74

    jesus christ, look at the size of that mouth :)



  75. 75

    Steve Tyler IS Areosmith… they can't go on without him.



  76. 76

    Eww-Look at his face…He looks like a pirhana there!!



  77. 77

    No Steven Tyler, no Aerosmith….who gives a crap about the other guys?? If it wasnt for ST, no one would ever show up at theis concerts!
    Steven Tyler for president!!



  78. 78

    I have been an Aerosmith fan since the beginning-Joe and the guys can keep their sound going after all these years, although it WILL be different. Hell-They've survived lots of other insanity over the years (mostly from Steve….) But hey, Van Halen did quite well without Dave didn't they?? Joe is such a talented guitarist, what plans will he have for them???



  79. 79

    Steve Tyler IS Aerosmith



  80. 80

    When Steven feels like it he will come back. He is the man…..and the rest of the band should remember that. Steven puts more energy into a performance… than the whole band put together.
    The rest of them just stand there….well except for the drummer.



  81. 81

    Wow! This news has saddened me! I have always been a big Aerosmith fan. I think I should replace Steve Tyler, I have always been good at belting out his tunes with a raunchy chick flair voice of course. Ha!!!!!

    If Mr. Tallerico needs to slow down and smell the roses, he should. He can always come stay with us in Whitby, Ontario. I will look after him, Ga Ga Ga GOW……
    Seriously, all the best to the band and I agree it will not be the same but such is life…..change is apart of it…
    Lisa :)



  82. 82

    Tyler needs to get sober again! No Aerosmith without Steven Tyler!



  83. 83

    Even Journey did it and even thou that lead singer is AWESOME. it still makes me not want to see Journey because no steve perry.. Ya know what I mean? it wouldn't be the same. Let it go..



  84. 84

    Aerosmith has for a long been one of the best bands of all times and it still is. It doesn;t matter how old they are: they still rock!!! But I don't know if Aerosmith still would Aerosmith without Steven Tylor or Joe Perry…



  85. 85

    Re: sarahwall – Agree!!! D=



  86. 86

    They should call calm down and keep Tyler. Big mistake to try to "take the vibe up." Who are they kidding?



  87. 87

    I DON´T EVEN THINK THAT´S TRUE…
    I THINK STEVEN JUST NEEDS A BREAK, MANY THINGS HAVE HAPPENED THE LAST FEW MONTHS (AND AGAIN, IT´S BEEN ALMOST 40 YEARS, COME ON!! )
    STOP TALKING SHIT PEREZ.
    AEROSMITH ROCKS !
    I LOVE STEVEN TYLER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  88. 88

    i smell another season of Rock Star cometh nigh!



  89. 89

    Steven Tyler IS Aerosmith. A band's singer gives the band it's sound. If a singer changes, the name should change as well. Hope Steven is doing ok, and decides to return to where he is needed.



  90. 90

    Someone is being a baby, Man up



  91. 91

    quit! break up! please!! just go the fuck away, aerosmith! you suck!!

  92. Anto says – reply to this


    92

    Journey did it, Foreigner did it (and that guy sounds really good). Bands should not be forced to be held hostage by singer diva behavior. Of course the original's always the best thing, but in these cases I can't blame the bands.



  93. 93

    Aerosmith with a new lead singer? Crazy, but this could really really work!–If they found someone that was really awesome though! They could be like inxs and do a rock star tv show…except actually come up with some new music and actually rock!!!!!



  94. 94

    joe perry need to stop and think!!! Aerosmith is NOT Aerosmith without Steven Tyler



  95. 95

    I cannot believe this. Aerosmith is not Aerosmith without Steve Tyler. Why after 40 years together would he leave?? Their music is a huge part of my life and I don't understand this. My feelings are mixed about who to support if the break up is real…
