It seems that Aerosmith's recording and touring break are not just due Steven Tyler's injuries from a recent stage accident - it's also due to his ego!
According to the band's co-leader Joe Perry, Tyler has not spoken to his bandmates since the accident in early August. And if he does have to communicate, he does it through his new management team.
For a band that's been together 40 years, that's cold!!
The two haven't even composed a piece together for the past 10 years!
"I'm down in my studio every day, writing, and for some reason he wants to write with people like (songwriter) Mark Hudson and whatever," said Perry. "I can't explain it."
He's been writing songs and using them for himself on his doomed solo album!
But, Perry still wants the band back!
"I'm an eternal optimist. We've been though some pretty thin times and some pretty thick times, and there have been periods when Steven and I - for no reason other than just to get some space - have not talked to each other for months. Then we get back together and things mesh," he said. "I think we need more time to get everybody healthy and the whole thing, and see if Steven wants to be part of the band again."
Aerosmith is legally obligated to play several shows in Hawaii at the end of October, so only time will tell if they can make amends!
Or just retire!!!
Steven, PLEASE... if this IS true... Knock it off!
The guys are BORED, put the band in the studio, out on the road... whatever!
Just do something so Joe doesn't have to go on ELLEN again!
