Aerosmith Guitarist, Joe Perry, States that Singer, Steven Tyler, has Quit the Band

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has said that singer Steven Tyler has quit the band "as far as I can tell".

Perry's comments follow those of rhythm guitarist Brad Whitford, who last week (November 6) said that Aerosmith are to hold crisis talks about their future after relations with Tyler became strained.

After a disastrous summer tour marred by long simmering internal tensions, injuries, and poor ticket sales, it appears that Aerosmith and frontman Steven Tyler may be parting ways. “Steven quit as far as I can tell,” guitarist Joe Perry told the Las Vegas Sun late last week. “I saw online that Steven said that he was going to leave the band. I don’t know for how long, indefinitely or whatever.” Perry said he and his fellow Aerosmith band mates usually have “no contact” with Tyler.
