Perry went off on Tyler during an interview with the Calgary Herald -- saying, "It's his business, but I don't want Aerosmith's name involved with [American Idol]. We have nothing to do with it."

Perry added, "[Idol] is a reality show designed to get people to watch that station and sell advertising ... it's one step above Ninja Turtles."

As for the future of the band, Perry once again threatened to replace Tyler -- saying, "[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."

For the record -- the Ninja Turtles also used to sing ...

Joe Perry hit the nail on the head: "Idol is a reality show designed to get people to watch that station and sell advertising "

So true.

Yet, Steven should call his bluff and drop Aerosmith altogether. They can go on without him. Can they? Afterall, Steven Perry can nudge just about anyone off a stage.

Just like Van Halen - it was never the same without David Lee Roth..Perry needs to relax. AI and Aerosmith are two different gigs..take some Metamucil and retire already..enjoy the millions you earned with your frontman.Even rock stars today are whinning little girls. Be a rockstar not a little bitch.

The only reason why Idol hired him is because he is basically the male version of Paula and will act high and drunk on the show

Aerosmith is my all time favorite band, but even I'm getting tired of Joe's whining. They haven't put out a new album of original material in nearly 10 years. If Steven wants to do this, let him. Its not like Aerosmith hasn't made a bazillion dollars doing what they do, so stop getting so annoyed that a TV network produces a show in order to make money.

Perry's an idiot. Why insult a great program like TMNT to American Idiot? Comparing the two is like comparing Brahm's to Wierd Al; Einstein to Lindsay Lohan.

Okay, there are greater shows thatn TMNT, but American Idiot is so down there, it's still an insult.
