If Tyler is on Idol, what next for Aerosmith?

So, this sounds a bit familiar. Aerosmith’s Joe Perry says the future of his band is looking uncertain and that once their current tour is over everything is “up in the air”.

As previously reported, Perry said Aerosmith was on indefinite hiatus last year, after frontman Steven Tyler went into rehab and stopped corresponding with his bandmates. Perry et al started looking for a new frontman until Tyler went legal and brought his band back together in beautiful attorney-led harmony. A new tour followed, but with that now due to end next month Perry is again questioning the future of his band, in part because of reports Tyler has signed up to be a judge on next year’s ‘American Idol’. 

Perry told “He [Tyler] told me just a couple of days ago he signed his papers to join the show. As far as he knew, everything’s set to go. I think everybody’s a little worn out. The tour is winding up, and we don’t know when we’ll work again as band. That part of it is up in the air, and it’s starting to hit home”.
