AEROSMITH's PERRY Talks About TYLER's Tour Injury, Band's Current Status; Video Available

The Associated Press has posted a short video clip (see below) of AEROSMITH guitarist Joe Perry talking about the band's current status following singer's Steven Tyler's tour injury.

AEROSMITH was forced to cancel its summer tour after Tyler fell off the stage while performing in Sturgis, South Dakota in early August. Following the incident, Tyler had his arm in a sling and told that he was taking a bunch of painkillers.

"The tour was building up to be a great tour, and I was pretty (upset), you know," Perry told the Associated Press.

The guitarist revealed that he hasn't even spoken to Tyler recently. "I haven't talked to him in over five weeks," he said. "I don't know what's going on with him. I hear he's getting better, but I don't know I really don't know what's going on with him."

He added, "All I know is [Tyler's] got to get his act together. I mean, he and I haven't written a song together alone in the same room in over ten years, so there's been some changes in paradigm of what AEROSMITH is."

Perry's solo effort, "Have Guitar, Will Travel", comes out October 6. The first single is "We've Got A Long Way To Go".
