    Steven Tyler has left Aerosmith

    CBS is reporting that Aerosmith singer Stephen Tyler has left the band.

    The following was found at Reports: Steven Tyler Leaving Aerosmith - cbs5.com


    Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry told the Las Vegas Sun on Friday that singer Steven Tyler left the band after their Abu Dhabi concert.

    "Steven quit as far as I can tell," Perry told the Las Vegas Sun in a phone interview. "I don't know anymore than you do about it. I got off the plane two nights ago. I saw online that Steven said that he was going to leave the band. I don't know for how long, indefinitely or whatever. Other than that, I don't know."

    Perry was referring to an article by the British website Classic Rock, which quotes Tyler saying. "Once the band hit the final note and I walk off stage – then I'll tell you the whole story," right before Aerosmith performed at Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

    According to the British magazine, Tyler said he is planning to work on his own brand, "Brand Tyler," once he walked off the stage at the said UAE show.

    According to Classic Rock, that tension was not evident during the show. But offstage, perhaps some dissension, because band members at the time were not seeing Tyler until the opening act for each concert and his dressing room was usually far from other band members rooms.

    Tyler has recently been missing from several Aerosmith concerts since falling of a stage during on of the band's performances.

    Aerosmith, however, will continue without Tyler, Perry told Las Vegas Sun.

    Wow ... and you can't have Aerosmith without Steven Tyler. Period.

    That would be like Led Zeppelin without Robert Plant.

    Yup, like the Stones without Jagger. Like David Bowie without...uh...you get the picture.

    Yeah, there is no Aerosmith without Steven Tyler. I can see other members of the band doing thing own thing and finding some success, especially Joe Perry, but to call it Aerosmith without Steven would just be wrong.

    I wonder if they are going to change Rock 'n' Roller Coaster because of it.

    I don't see why they would need to.

    I agree. You can't have the Grateful Dead without Jerry Garcia.

    Tell that to all those people who continue to see them live. Then again, the crowds at a Grateful Dead concert probably still see Jerry up there.

    Even if they don't do any future appearances or projects together, I would assume that all previous deals would still be in place. Those Aerosmith royalty checks will come in handy as they attempt to have careers beyond the band.

    Without Jerry, they are "The Dead".

    To my knowledge, Queen is still around without Freddie. But they are not as good, but they are still doing tours. the same can probably be said for Aerosmith.

    Queen recently started up again with the lead singer of Bad Company if I'm not mistaken. Still not even close to what it was without Freddie Mercury. Same reason I'm not interested in Alice In Chains.

    Exactly ... although I have heard that the new Alice in Chains album is REALLY good. I just can't picture it without Lane.

    The ONLY band that has successfully changed lead singers and been as (or in this case more) successful was Genesis. They were more successful from a "popularity" standpoint with Phil Collins. Whether they were more successful from a music standpoint is still up to debate (although I do love a LOT of Collins era Genesis).

    I liked em' better with Collins. Iron Maiden shot up when Bruce Dickenson took over. Also, Black Sabbath did well with Ronnie James Dio as well.

    Good call on Maiden and Sabbath. And your absolutely right.

    As far as Collins vs. Gabriel Genesis, I also preferred Collins era when I first started listening to the band. It took awhile for Peter to grow on me, but when he did ... look out.

    When I first got into them, "Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" was my least favorite of their albums. Now it's among my favorites. Go figure.
