Aerosmith Looking For a New Lead Singer as Steven Tyler Leaves

It's Official: Steven Tyler Is Out of Aerosmith

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?

I find it hard to believe that after all these years Stephen Tyler would now decide to pursue a solo career. He is the front man in Aerosmith, and I can't imagine the band without him.

Thanks for the tip, Snookyx — I hope that's the case! Sounds like he and Joe need to get their stories straight. I'll have to check it out.

Steven Tyler out of Aerosmith = no more Aerosmith. As much as bands hate to admit it, you aren't the same band once you replace the lead singer. And those guys have made it a long time, they should just move on now.

Without Steven Tyler, Aerosmith is no longer Aerosmith. This is sad, sad news.

OMG. As much as I'm not a huge fan, Aerosmith cannot be Aerosmith without Steven Tyler! I wish them the best of luck finding a new frontman.

No more Toxic Twins? It would be weird, but I think it's unfair to suggest that the other members should sacrifice the band they love being a part of just because he has self[ish]-branding aspirations. Hmmm who could replace Steven tho? Lindsay Lohan is looking more and more like him, but unfortunately doesn't have the pipes... What is that guy from the Darkness up to these days?
