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 me” incident 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?
