“Any rumor out there about us looking for another singer is completely untrue,” band says in statement
Aerosmith have issued a statement denying that the band is looking to replace singer Steven Tyler. “Any rumor out there about us looking for another singer is completely untrue,” guitarist Joe Perry said in a statement. “All five of us were just on the phone together talking about how excited we are to go to South America and Mexico City.” Aerosmith is scheduled to embark on their Latin American tour in September.

Joe Perry says his new supergroup, the Hollywood Vampires, will be staying in Central New York for about a week next month.
The rock band, which features the Aerosmith guitarist, singer Alice Cooper and guitarist (and sometimes actor) Johnny Depp, is scheduled to kick off their first-ever tour next month at the Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, N.Y. The group played a handful of shows in L.A. and the Rock in Rio festival in Brazil last year, but CNY will be the first to see them live in 2016 since their performance at the Grammy Awards in February.

With Steven Tyler hinting at an Aerosmith farewell tour, guitarist discusses group’s future
Although Steven Tyler recently said that Aerosmith were “probably” going to embark on a farewell tour next year, Joe Perry now says the band is only “considering” it as an option. “A farewell tour is something we’ve talked about doing for years, let’s say roughly in the last five years,” he tells Rolling Stone. “It’s just something the band’s talked about at various times. At this point, the five of us have never sat down and said, ‘It’s time to do it.’ So ‘considering’ is an appropriate word for that statement. A farewell tour is definitely not confirmed.” Continue reading Joe Perry Talks Aerosmith’s ‘Options’ for Future

Aerosmith are on a brief hiatus now as Steven Tyler gears up to promote his upcoming country album, but when they reappear next year, it might be to say goodbye. “I’m doing 30 [solo] shows from May until August,” Tyler tells Rolling Stone. “And then in 2017 we go out with Aerosmith. We’re probably doing a farewell tour. Look, there’s two bands that still have the original members, us and the Stones. I’m grateful for that. Whether we do a farewell tour or go into the studio and do another record, I’m just excited about it.” Continue reading Aerosmith Contemplating Farewell Tour in 2017
Rehearsing Immigrant song
And all that you do is nothing,
except an empty shoe
Close call between this one and “Crash”.
But I think “Crash” was a little bit too dark. Maybe even a little bit to relatable.
And for this book “Baby Please Don’t Go” was close to losing its spot to this one, but Fuckin’ A, if that one didn’t hit the spot!
Then I thought “Avant Garden” for number 72, such a cool song, but the only garden I have, nothing ever grows… I guess that makes sense
But this one… this one stays for another year. Especially with the reference of a garden that doesn’t grow! Futile desires and dreams. Idealism and ideals that is nothing more than someone else’s predetermined plan. Continue reading NUMBER 71 – From What I’ve Seen, If You Have the Money, You don’t Need the Character…”
While most of us were still making our way out of a Thanksgiving food coma this past Saturday, boxer Tyson Fury was making history by defeating longtime championWladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf, Germany, to take the Ring, WBA, IBF, IBO and WBO heavyweight titles by unanimous decision. The win itself was shocking enough; Klitschko had been champ for nine years and hadn’t lost a fight in 11, but what Fury did afterward is what had everyone talking.
Following the obligatory kudos to Jesus, an emotional dedication to his late Uncle Hughie, and offering apologies to both Kiltschko and boxer-turned-boxing-commentator Lennox Lewis for his verbal grandstanding in the months leading up to the fight, Fury took the mic and delivered on a pre-match proclamation that he would sing a song if he won, which has become something of a post-fight tradition for the undefeated (25-0 with 18 KOs) Brit. And what song did he choose? The Diane Warren-penned ballad which Aerosmith recorded for the sappy 1998 film Armageddon, of course.
“I promised everybody I’d sing a song after this fight,” Fury began. “So this is to my UK fans, my Irish fans, my American fans and my new German fans; and most of all, this is a dedication to me wife.”
