Report: Steven Tyler has left Aerosmith

Steven Tyler has quit Aerosmith [ tickets ], according to the band's lead guitarist and co-founder, Joe Perry, who told a Las Vegas newspaper that he hasn't heard from the singer since a performance in Abu Dhabi last month.

"Steven quit as far as I can tell," Perry told the Las Vegas Sun. "I don’t know anymore 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."
Aerosmith had been on an unplanned hiatus after Tyler, 61, fell off the stage during an Aug. 5 performance in Sturgis, SD. The singer broke his left shoulder and suffered a cut on his head that required 20 stitches. Tyler made enough of a recovery for the band to salvage the final leg of its world tour, including two shows in Hawaii and a performance last month at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

"I don’t know what I'm doing yet, but it's definitely going to be something Steven Tyler: working on the brand of myself--Brand Tyler," the singer told Classic Rock Magazine following the Middle East performance.

Perry said he arrived home last Wednesday from an appearance at an award show in London and read on the Internet that Tyler was planning on quitting the group he's fronted since 1969, adding that Tyler hasn't returned his phone calls. "He has had no contact with me or the other band members," Perry told the Las Vegas paper.

Perry has been vocal in his criticism of Tyler since the singer's fall. "I was pretty [upset], because right before that, he had pulled a muscle in his leg, and we had to take two weeks off and we missed probably seven dates," the guitarist told the AP last month.

"All I know is, he's got to get his act together," Perry added. "I mean, he and I haven't written a song together alone in the same room in over 10 years, so there's been some changes in paradigm of what Aerosmith is."

This isn't the first time Aerosmith has split; Perry exited the band in 1979. "The circumstances were different then," Perry told the Sun. "We'd been touring pretty much nonstop for eight years and the band was just pretty much burned out on each other. We needed a break. We needed to take a vacation but blood was running so hot I just had to leave, had to get out of there. But I certainly wasn't going to stop playing so I put out a solo project."

New News:

Aerosmith intact: Steven Tyler appears with Joe Perry
Published November 11, 2009 09:11 AM3 Comments and 0 Reactions print email
By LiveDaily Staff /
Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler--who, for the past several days, appeared to be the band's former frontman--made a surprise appearance at Perry's solo-tour launch in New York City last night (11/10), during which the singer said he was not leaving the group.

"I just want New York--New York, I just want you to know: I am not leaving Aerosmith," Tyler said after taking the stage near the end of Perry's set at the Fillmore at Irving Plaza (see video below). "And Joe Perry, you are a man of many colors ... but I, motherf---er, am the rainbow!"
"There's been ... lots of rumors that we were having, like, some kind of a fight, or some kind of bulls--- like that," Perry added as his band began playing Aerosmith's "Walk This Way." "It ain't true."

Tyler then sang the classic Aerosmith tune with Perry and his band, a.k.a. The Joe Perry Project [ tickets ].

Tyler's and Perry's pronouncements followed several days of widespread reports that Tyler had left Aerosmith, and that the group was planning to tap a new singer to fill the void. Those reports were fueled by statements and tweets made by Tyler and Perry themselves.

Earlier this month, Perry told a Las Vegas newspaper that Tyler had apparently quit the band following a concert in the Middle East. Tyler, until last night, hadn't publicly denied the claim, only mentioning his intention to focus on "the brand of myself--Steven Tyler," in an interview with Classic Rock magazine.

Perry posted on his Twitter feed late Monday night (11/9) that the band was "positively looking for a new singer to work with."

"You just can't take 40 years of experience and throw it in the bin," he continued, adding that "one of the members is doing his own thing and said so in the press. That's all I know."

Last month, Perry released "Have Guitar, Will Travel." The new set is his first under the Joe Perry Project moniker since 1983's "Once a Rocker, Always a Rocker." The guitarist and his backing band will support the set during their just-launched tour, which stretches into mid-December. Details are included below.

I would hope he does not leave. Wouldn't be Aerosmith without him.
