Aerosmith Guitarist Seems Pretty Pissed About Steven Tyler’s Solo Career
Aerosmith were slated to tour early next year, but it looks like that’s no longer happening, thanks to frontman Steven Tyler’s solo plans. “Steven doesn’t want to do it,” Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford told Billboard in a very shade-filled interview. “It’s unfortunate. We kind of feel a little bit abandoned by him. I guess he seems to think his solo career is going to go great guns, and he doesn’t seem to realize that — in my opinion — his fans around the globe want to see him in the context of Aerosmith and don’t really care for whatever he thinks he’s gonna do. I don’t know if he gets that but, hey, that’s what he wants to do. I can’t put a gun to his head. It’s just pretty disappointing.” Ouch, Brad! Tyler has been recording his country album in Nashville, and he released first single “Love Is Your Name” earlier this year. Joe Perry is also working on a solo album, and Whitford is releasing a new Whitford St. Holmes album with ex-Ted Nugent vocalist Derek St. Holmes sometime in the near future.
