Although the future of Aerosmith has been left abigious, Steven Tyler is showing much love to the band and his primary partner in crime Joe Perry.
Speaking to Billboard Tyler said “The European tour is booked, locked and cocked that’s ready for next summer. And then we’re coming back and we’re doing the rest of the world. Farewell? I’m not sure, but the truth is, who knows how long we’ll be touring as the original band? I don’t think that needs to be said, I think that we’re all freak of natures and Joe and I were talking on the phone yesterday and he said “We have no right being as healthy as we are after what we’ve been through” whether it’s through the abuses of being on tour for 40 years or the abuses of substances or the absuses of life on life’s terms, there’s been a lot of abuse. But we’re both looking pretty damn good for what’s going on”
Continuing about the band’s structure, Tyler said “Aerosmith is something else you’ll never see again. We all love each other, five of us are still alive, every one of us is still playing better than ever — and I’m not just saying that we just came off a South American tour. Yes, we have ups and down. But one of the things I’m learning in life is that being away from each other is sometimes the healthiest thing we can do. You know? I dare to say that being away from each other may have saved a few marriages on this planet”
