Aerosmith's Joe Perry and Steven Tyler "enjoy" the quintessential lead singer/lead guitarist relationship, which is quite adversarial. Perry admitted to our friends at Spinner that "I don't know what's going to happen with the band." Perry has been talking in the press, often expressing his displeasure and dissatisfaction with Tyler taking a judge's slot on American Idol as it takes his attention away from the band.
Perry also said that "Steven wants to spend time in L.A. and do this," regarding the Idol post. Well, duh. It's only the biggest show on TV, if it doesn't prove to jump the shark this season with the slate of new judges. Perry further said, "He's always talked about doing stuff like that and I think he wants to try his hand at that. Let him go at it. That's an interesting endeavor. I hope he's really happy doing it." Do you sense a little venom in Perry's statements?
Regarding Aerosmith's future, Perry said, "I know that the band will always somehow put something together and play, whether it's two or three weeks out on the road and playing this or that or some charity stuff. I do not think this band is going to see its last show, that's how I feel."
While Perry does his thang with Jennifer Lopez, Perry is going to keep busy and play out to keep his creative juices flowing.
Will Idol spell the end of Aerosmith as we know it?
