So you say you wanna be a singer in Aerosmith?
No word on auditions, but you may want to bombard Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry via Twitter.
That's where he posted the above statement, all but confirming that the band has parted ways with original voice Steven Tyler. Either that or he's passively aggressively trying to reach Tyler. All's been quiet on the Tyler front, and Perry later posted that he would not be discussing the potential split with Tyler any further.
But if you're at all intimidated about replacing one of the most distinct voices in classic rock, know that the perks are great, and all those hours playing Guitar Hero or Rock Band shouldn't have been for naught.
Pop & Hiss will keep an eye on Craigslist classifieds to see if any info on auditions pops up. But really, how long before the effort to replace Tyler turns into a reality show?
