Even though Joe Perry has insisted that the search for a replacement for Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler would only be temporary, Tyler is hitting back!
Tyler’s attorney, Skip Miller, has fired off a letter to Aerosmith manager Howard Kaufman requesting that the band “immediately cease and desist from engaging in acts and conduct to the harm and detriment of your own client, Aerosmith, and our client who is one of its members.”
I knew they were being sneaky trying to push him out. It ain’t happening, folks.
Miller has called a February 9th meeting of all of Aerosmith’s shareholders to discuss the future of the band. He said, “Steven Tyler does not want lawsuits. We do not want to go in that direction. The direction we want is Aerosmith, with Steven Tyler, touring in Europe, touring Latin America, releasing a new albu,…This is the direction it’s all intended to go. It’s just amazing to me current management would be taking any other position.”
Way to go. We all know Aerosmith wouldn’t be where they are today without Steven Tyler’s signature voice.
