Aerosmith on the edge of splitting once again?

It was only a few months ago that Steven Tyler’s actions nearly led to Aerosmith either splitting up or searching for a vocalist capable of replacing him. Joe Perry had in fact asked several singers if they would join but all of them turned him down for the role.  Since then Aerosmith got back on their feet, Tyler returned fresh and ready and everything seemed perfect within the band as they had even stated that writing was underway for a new album.

Though since such times Steven Tyler has been linked to taking over Simon Cowell’s slot on American Idol, which is now being described as a done deal. The problem being that Tyler didn’t inform any member of the band that he was in talks and that he wanted to do this, putting Aerosmith on hold yet again as he wishes to do his own thing.

Talking to the Boston Herald, Joe Perry states: “I found out on the internet, like the rest of the world. There was an Aerosmith afterparty at Studio 54 after the Vegas show – which none of us in the band knew anything about – and he said some stuff there. I mean, this is no small thing.”

“I mean, after working with me for 40 years, he couldn’t tell me about this, why so secretive? We’re told it’s a done deal. If Steven is committed to a TV show, that kind of affects the rest of us. We’d like to plan our lives, ya know?”

So if Steven Tyler is now committed to American Idol, which runs for five months, and Perry and the other members do wish to take action, we could now see Tyler replaced or the end of the band as we know it. Further reports discuss Tyler’s solo album which has also been a big talking point regarding the bands future but only time can tell.
