The latest saga in the Steven Tyler and Aerosmith soap opera is that the band will start holding auditions to find a new singer to replace Tyler.
After Tyler announced he was out of the band then a few days later announced it was all one big misquoted mistake it now appears the original report was accurate.
Guitarist Joe Perry, who is on a solo tour in Canada, told QMI that as soon as his solo commitments are done Aerosmith will 'start having some auditions, making some phone calls' and that 'hopefully weíll have found a new singer by the summer and Aerosmith will be able to go back on the road'.
Tylerís departure comes just one year away from the bandís 40th anniversary but he hasnít been completely written out of the band.
About Tyler, Perry told QMI "He has to have leg surgery and foot surgery and it's basically going to take him out of the picture for about a year, year and a half. So, in the meantime, the rest of the band wants to play. And I want to play with the other guys in Aerosmith. So the four of us are just making our plans. We're gonna find somebody to get in there and fill that spot. Just like when Tom was sick ? we got David Hull to come in and play bass. When Brad was sick, we got somebody else to come in and play for him. That's basically how I look at it; we need another singer to fill in."
Can someone please pass on J.D. Fortune or Gary Cheroneís number to Perry.
