Joe Perry Discusses The State of Aerosmith
Gazer of WZMR 104.9 The Edge in Albany spoke with Perry in an interview that aired Sunday, where Perry discussed the circumstance of the onstage jam, and the future of the band. Perry told Gazer that Tyler "came down to my show in New York. I think he walked into the club right at the encore because he really didn't know which songs we had played up til them. But we had 'Walk this Way' left and I thought I would give the fans a treat and have him come sit in with my band." That's the part of the story most fans have heard about but Perry goes on to tell Gazer that "He came in, he sang and he left. I looked around afterwards, because we played one more song, and I went back looking for him and he was gone. They say he just walked off the stage and left."
Perry said that Tyler, who is currently under different management than the rest of the band, wants to take two years off from the band. (Remember it was basically a two camp management rift that split the Beatles apart.) He once again discussed bringing in a new singer. "I have a bunch of favorite singers, but I certainly haven't pictured them on stage with Aerosmith yet." So for now it is still a wait and see game to figure out the future of the famed Boston rock band.
While the interview isn't up on the The Edge's website at press time, here is a link to - Gazer's blog page in case he adds it.
