guitarist Joe Perry says estranged singer Steven Tyler's surprise guest
appearance at his Joe Perry Project concert Tuesday night (November 10)
in New York "really didn't change anything in my mind" about the status
of their band.
Tyler joined Perry and company for an encore
rendition of Aerosmith's 'Walk This Way', telling fans before the song
that "I want you to know that I'm not leaving Aerosmith."
Now, Perry tells Billboard.com that Tyler "never said he was
leaving the band" but further explains that the singer "said he wanted
two years off to do his other projects," which is where things become
"Aerosmith wants to work," says Perry, who Tweeted earlier in the
week that the band was "positively looking for a new singer to work
with." He adds, "the band's been playing together for 40 years. It's a
really powerful rock band, and I don't want to see it just go to waste
and I don't think any of the other guys do, either. We're gonna work
and we're gonna do something -- I'm not exactly sure what yet, but the
band's too good to let it sit around. We're not going to wait for
Perry says he's had one conference call during the past week with
bandmates Brad Whitford, Tom Hamilton and Joey Kramer, but they have
not made any firm decisions about anything -- including working with
another singer while Tyler is pursuing his outside endeavors. "We're
waiting for things to kind of settle down, and then we'll figure out
what we're gonna do. Anything is possible," the guitarist says.
En resumen que Perry dice que quiere segir con Aerosmith adelante y hacer un nuevo disco mientras que Tyler se queria dar un par de años de descanso. La cosa es que tienen que decidir con el resto de grupo si esperan a que Tyler salga de esas vacaciones, que espero que no se convierta en permanentes y volver a reflotar al grupo.
Si estan las cosas así yo creo que si acaso Perry debería de hacer algo del estilo Chikenfoot, donde por ejemplo esta Chad Smith y en el momento que lo reclamen los Chili Peppers volverá a su banda original. Vamos que si el resto de la banda y él quieren hacer discos y giras pero sin Tyler, pues cojonudo pero que no digan que son Aerosmith sino otro proyecto aparte que creo que puede tener tambien una buena aceptación.
