Steven Tyler May Have Quit Aerosmith

Is Aerosmith as we know it done for good? Steven Tyler has left the group, according to the band’s guitarist, Joe Perry. “Steven quit as far as I can tell. I don't know any more than you do about it,” Perry told the Las Vegas Sun . "I don’t know for how long, indefinitely or whatever. Other than that, I don't know." Tyler recently released a statement to Classic Rock magazine saying his next project was “definitely going to be something Steven Tyler, working on the brand of myself – Brand Tyler.” The news prompted an angry response from Perry, who said he and Tyler apparently haven’t spoken in months. “Read on line st left band to do ‘brand Tyler’? That’s all I know but like I’ve said hasn’t called me in months.a bit cold forget us 4 guys,” Perry wrote on his Twitter page last week. In August, Aerosmith cancelled the remainder of its tour due to an injury Tyler sustained when he fell off stage during a performance in Abu Dhabi. "[W]e’ll probably find somebody else that will sing in those spots where we need a singer,” Perry said of Tyler’s possible departure, “and then we’ll be able to move the Aerosmith up a notch, move the vibe up a notch.”
