Joe Perry Says Aerosmith Breakup Is Still A Go

Despite an impromptu appearance by Steve Tyler at one of Joe Perry's solo shows a few days ago and his announcement that he wasn't leaving the band, word from Joe is that the breakup is still on.

Joe told Rolling Stone magazine that the night of his gig in New York, he had no idea that Steve was at the venue, nor did he know that he was going to tell the crowd he wasn't leaving Aerosmith. This was news to him, as he explains that the plans for Steve to leave the band have become very definite:

"There was all this commotion during our encore break and somebody said, ‘Steven is here.’ I was like, 'What?'…So he came up and sang and that was the last I saw of him…He (Tyler) wants to take two years off from the band. The rest of the band wants to keep on working. We have so many different options to fill up that time. Anything is possible at this point."

We still don't know if you can have an Aerosmith without Steve Tyler. You're pretty popular Joe, but he is still the voice. And now it seems more like you guys are pushing him out, rather than him quitting.

What do you say to that, Joe?

    They always sell really good at their concerts so I would hardly say they are dead! I think they are pushing Steven because let's face it…they're OLD. Let the guy rest if he wants. He's been injured a lot and at his age, deserves a rest!

    Sorry, but no Steven Tyler = no Aerosmith! If they think they can replace him…they are NUTS!



  9. 9

    No Steven Tyler = No more AeroSmith.. I really hope they sort things out..

    After that show, they were both seen outside the venue signing autographs. Everyone out there asked them if there was any truth to the rumor of them breaking up. Joe claimed he never heard about the rumor and said NO they were not breaking up and Steven said NO as well. BUT Joe did ride in on a tour bus with just his name on it. So who knows.

    You remember Aerosmith for the awesome voice and that is it. I cant remember one single guitar rift that made Aerosmith super popular. Aerosmith is Steven Tyler. Fuck Joe Perry. Clearly he is pushing him out of the band.

    after all this time they're gonna just break up?

    Glambert can scream like Tyler!!!!!



  15. 15

    Aerosmith is still a band? But they are so old. So very old.



  16. 16

    Say Aerosmith and the one thing that comes to your mind is Steven Tyler. He is the voice, the face and the carisma…., if the other guys in Aerosmith wants to do music without Steven then they can find a brand new name for their band. And good luck…, they´re gonna need it!!!



  17. 17

    Well, they did Journey without Steve Perry. Not WELL, mind you, but, they're still playing with a Steve Perry wannabe. There will NEVER be another Steve Perry or anyone to take his place and I think the same about Steven Tyler.



  18. 18

    Media hype, that's all. It's a good way to draw attention to themselves.

    I saw Train last night in Clifton Park, NY at Northern Lights. As we were walking in, a staff member asked us if we wanted FREE tickets to see Joe Perry Sunday night!!! They can not sell the tickets, they just want the place to have some warm bodies..Poor Joe



  20. 20

    joe needs to SHUT THE FUCK UP.

    he will be making no money if steven leaves….

    dont bite the hand that feeds you joe..



  21. 21

    There is o no Aerosmith without Steven Tyler.
    It would be like the Rolling Stones without Mick Jagger.
    Just not possible.

    If they they think they can replace him they are nuts, Steven has such a unique voice, no one could sound like him and anyone who tried would sound like an asshole. I am only 24 but I love Aerosmith. They are not just for "old people" and if they can still rock out then who cares their age, you are only as old as you feel. I hope this is just a nasty rumor. Long live Aerosmith!!!!



  23. 23

    Joe Perry is acting like a real asshole.He is definitely trying to get steven out of the band.He started the steven has quit rumor and that is why steven showed up pissed off in new york.Joe is a backstabber and liar.steven is aerosmith.if steven has to go i am done with this band.steven is not a saint but he has always been nice to the fans unlike arrogant joe dick perry.



  24. 24

    The fact that Steven pops up out of nowhere at Joe's show the other night and says "Joe, you are multi colored but I am the mother fucking rainbow" was fucking dick. And for people who are saying Joe is being an ass hole, he's not. This is years of Steven being jaded as hell, and Joe definitely is not that kind of person. Infact, none of the band members are nearly that jaded at all, so if Steven didn't want to continue, and they moved on with someone else, they could all care less if they played bars. They've got all the money they'll ever need. And keep your comments for R-Patz and GaGa if you know nothing about rock and roll, especially the jack ass who said the last song they had was in 94. Fuckin' morons.

    The guys just want to work. Tyler's sudden appearance sounded a bit manic. I can see Joe's puzzlement. Joe and Steve should talk. I wonder if Tyler wants the time off but is worried about being replaced permanently. Nah. Take the time off.

    Re: aerotyler – Fellow Aerofan, I think you may be right. But, on that video where Steven joined Joe onstage and when they started playing you can hear Joe talking about the "bullshit rumors" and he said they weren't true. So I don't know what the real story is!!! If this is true, then yes, Joe is being a huge dickwad…but I'm hoping for the best and that all these stories are simply rumors. I've always been iffy about Joe though, he kinda seems like he might be a dick in person…
