Singer/guitarist rivalries are a crucial part of rock 'n' roll lore and Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler and guitarist Joe Perry are no different and aren't bucking trends. There has been plenty of tension between the two unfolding in the press over the past few years and Perry told a radio station in Florida that he was "taken by surprise" at Tyler being courted for a gig as a judge on the new season of American Idol, which is only the hottest show on TV! Whatever the Tyler-Perry personal issues, Perry should realize that if Tyler does take this gig, it would certainly benefit Aerosmith. Guilty by association, so to speak.
Perry also said the situation reminded him of 2009, when Tyler randomly decided he wanted to go solo. Perry said, "It was a replay of last year, except this time he had a job…Over the last couple of years, it's just been getting stranger and stranger."
What the hell is going on in the Aerosmith camp? Why don't these dudes communicate?
