Is Aerosmith splitting with singer Steven Tyler?

“Steven quit as far as I can tell,” guitarist Joe Perry told the Las Vegas Sun. “I don’t know anymore than you do about it. I got off the plane two nights ago. I saw online that Steven said that he was going to leave the band.”

Aerosmith’s representatives could not be reached for comment. However, Tyler reportedly told Classic Rock magazine, “I don’t know what I’m doing yet, but it’s definitely going to be something Steven Tyler: working on the brand of myself — Brand Tyler.”

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers have apparently been squabbling since the summer when they had to cancel the rest of their tour after Tyler fell off a stage while performing in South Dakota. The band is currently on hiatus, with Perry kicking off his solo tour tonight at the Fillmore New York at Irving Plaza to support his “Have Guitar, Will Travel” album.
