Guns N' Roses Mock Aerosmith Singer Over Reunion Claims
"Guns N' Roses would like to respectfully thank the many people taking credit for our upcoming shows and everything in between," posted the group. "Especially those whom we haven't spoken to in numerous years who, through the power of media, have somehow served a pivotal, even if non-existent, role. We and the fans thank you!"
The note takes direct aim at headline-making comments Tyler made to Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio show earlier this week. "I'm sure I'm not solely [responsible for them getting back together], but I did meet Axl in a couple of clubs a year ago and two years ago and three years ago," Tyler told Stern. "I bumped into him, and I had that talků I said, 'You need to get f***ing back together again soon, because we all miss you.' Same thing someone said to me when Joe [Perry] and I were fighting. 'You've gotta get back together. What are you, crazy?'
"In fact, it was Jon Bon Jovi. I'm in rehab. He calls me up and goes, 'What the f*** are you in rehab? The world needs you. We're out here ripping it up, and everybody's asking for Aerosmith. You need to get out of here, because people in the world need you.'"
"So I'd say to Axl, 'You've gotta get together. There's a place and time where if you don't, you're gonna miss it.' And in another four or five years, no one's gonna even know who they were or care if they're on tour, and that's Steven Tyler's opinion." Read more here.
