Is wiry, big-lipped frontman Steven Tyler walking this way right out of Aerosmith? That seems to be the case according to some of the signs popping up in the media–like the fact that he quit.
Apparently there’s been tension in the band since Tyler fell off a stage and hurt himself, causing the cancellation of a bunch of concerts. Plus he’s been working on a solo project, the kind of thing that usually spells creative separation. Most damagingly of all, he hasn’t returned guitar player Joe Perry‘s calls.
The band, which has been rockin’ since 1970, has a backup plan in case Tyler doesn’t come back. But how on earth could they ever come up with another dude who looks like a lady, sings like a (screechy) angel, and has a daughter in The Lord of the Rings?
