Joe Perry: “American Idol Is A Step Above Ninja Turtles”…

The Bad Boys of Boston brawl is back ON! Yikes!

And, in a shocking twist, I actually agree with something Joe Perry has to say for once. However, after reading Perry’s interview with the Calgary Herald, it’s also safe to assume that the Joe Perry/Steven Tyler brawl is back on as once again, Joe Perry seemed to threaten Steven Tyler’s motherfucking rainbow status with Aerosmith:

[You’ve got] four guys that are great together, and if you find the right singer, there’s no reason you can’t go and entertain people.

Perry also shook his fist at Tyler’s participation with the 2011 season of American Idol saying that Aerosmith has “nothing to do with the show” and, he didn’t want the bands name associated with it. Prattled The Perry:

[Idol] is a reality show designed to get people to watch that station and sell advertising … it’s one step above Ninja Turtles.

Ninja Turtles? Maybe that crack to the noggin Perry got a few weeks ago was worse than we thought. Adding more my fist, your face fuel to the feud, are the comments Steven Tyler made via Classic Rock Magazine last week regarding the Perry pushed meincident in Canada on August 18th.

I had bumped into Joe. I kind of strafe him — that’s what we do night after night. We’ve done it for 40 years. In return, he gave me a hit that I feel was a bit out of place. Facing forward, I was able to jump off and grab peoples’ shoulders, and it was fine. I got right back up. I don’t know what he was thinking. He’s Joe Perry.

Perry’s response to Tyler consisted of thinly veiled “he hit me first” jabs to this straight up fuck-you:

Rock and Roll is a contact sport, deal with it

The interview then glooms on with Perry concluding that after the bands next two shows, (September 10th in Calgary and September 16th in Vancouver), he technically doesn’t have a “job” with Aerosmith.

Which naturally prompts yours truly to ask the following question: What kind of job should Joe Perry get if he’s not playing guitar for Aerosmith?

Joe My GOD! Joe Perry Pushes Steven Tyler Off The Stage In Toronto…?

Judo Jo Perry CHOP!

By now you’ve all heard the news that, last night at an Aerosmith show in Toronto, after Steven Tyler bumped Joe Perry on stage while doing his famous “I Motherf*cker am the RAINBOW!” jig, Joe Perry hip-checked Tyler, hockey Mom style, causing Tyler to fall off the stage head first, into the crowd. Ironically, this is the second time Tyler took a spill off the stage during the song “Love in an Elevator”. Going down, indeed.

But was it all just a publicity stunt, orchestrated by the band to grab more headlines as they push through their 45 date tour? After watching the video, it looks as though Perry “bumped” Tyler, saw him fall off the stage, but continued down the catwalk, riffing out, appearing to be quite unaware that Tyler had quite literally become one with the audience. To yours truly, Perry’s actions are definitely suspicious. But what do YOU think.

Has Joe Perry finally reached the end of his rock ‘n’ roll rope with Steven Tyler or, was it all just part of the show?

Cherrybomb Daily Earwig: Thunderheist – Jerk It…

Thunderheist, Jerk It. No animals were harmed during the filming of this video but they did get their groove on…

Whoa. By way of Toronto/Montreal welcome to Thunderheist. Like it or not (and I verra much love it) Jerk It is going to be stuck in your head for a while. The video was created by Noel Paul and Stefan Moore of That Go.net The pair are also also responsible for the trippy video, Sophisticated Side Ponytail by Seattle techno fave, Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head. Both Paul and Moore are graduate students at the DXArts, the Center for Digital Arts at the University of Washington in Seattle.

If you missed them last year at CMJ, you can catch Thunderheist live in Cali on November 8th at Pepperjacks and at Half Alive at Pub 340 in Vancouver, BC on November 21st.

Cherrybomb’s Daily Earwig: Pearl Jam – Do the Evolution…

Pearl Jam, Do the Evolution, 1998.

I wish I could say that I had no idea why the song, as well as the images from Evolution’s video have been running through my head for nearly three days now because of course I know why. Not so strangely perhaps, Todd McFarlane’s brilliant decade old video draws many parallels to some of today’s current events. Even the character of “Death” in the video winks like, well…like her.

If you need me, I’ll be hiding under my bed until it’s time to vote on November 4th. Thanks to G for the paranoid linkage…
