Aerosmith on Hiatus But Not Broken Up

(antiMusic) Aerosmith guitarist Joe Petty took to the airwaves on Providence, Rhode Island radio station WHJY Thursday and during the discussion he addressed the rumors that the band was planning to break up.

Regarding the rumors that Aerosmith was breaking up following the cancellation of the group's U.S. tour with ZZ TOP, Perry stated, "The band is on hiatus. I think that for the last couple of tours, Steven's [Tyler, vocals] been through a bunch of different physical things. He's always felt like we've gone out a little bit too early every time and that kind of thing... I really don't know for sure. We just want him to get completely healthy from head to toe, whatever ailment it is and then we'll talk about getting back together.

"So the band is by no means breaking up; we are just taking some time off. And we're gonna take a good bit of time off so that everybody can re-evaluate our original mandate, which was to go out there and entertain the fans, put the fans [at] number one which I always do, and I constantly will, with the [Joe Perry] Project but with Aerosmith, we're all there on that. And make a great studio record and go out and get on the road and tour until we're finished." - Blabbermouth has more from the interview plus a stream of the entire exchange here
