Joe Perry has taken to his Twitter account
to break the news that Aerosmith is looking for a new lead singer. Steven Tyler has apparently dropped out amid rumors that he's looking for a solo career — which the front man alluded to himself in an interview earlier this year
. Perry assured fans that the band is not breaking up tweeting, "You just can't take 40 years of expiriance and throwitinthebin!"
I'm sure I echo most people's sentiments when I say this is a sad day in rock 'n' roll. I feel like the group should call it quits, because I can't imagine anyone replacing Tyler's swagger. Joe Perry has done solo projects before, but when it comes to Aerosmith, he and Tyler have always been a package deal in my mind. Although, perhaps I'm being too pessimistic — after all, Van Halen did go on to have a successful run when Sammy Hagar took over for David Lee Roth.
Do you think Aerosmith can (or should) go on without Tyler? Can you name a worthy substitute?
