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 ...

Really Joe? You'd be no where without Steven. Get over it. You're solo career sucks-you need him. I would NEVER see Aerosmith without Steven. He's the heart and soul of the band.

Joe Perry should get a grip on reality. What could HE do without Steven Tyler. Tyler is the band. He is the reason I went to Aerosmith shows. Not Perry. He thinks he is something but he was nothing without Tyler. Look at what he did without Tyler. Bands t think they can replace the face of the band and what happens. Van Halen and Guns and Roses come to mind. If Perry wants to go down in history he should remember who made him. His guitar could be so easily replaced but not Stevens voice and attitude.Didn't I see Perry on Idol.

Steven Tyler IS Aerosmith, obviously Joe's solo career didn't exactly take flight.
And Birdsht (perfect nic for ya). These guys have been around for 40 yrs! And talking about what Steven Tyler looks like? Hmm....what do U listen too? A Day To Remember? Bring Me the Horizon? Maybe The Devil Wears Prada? I doubt any of those bands will be around 40 yrs from now, and selling out major venues as well. And if u listen to all that rap ****-well, that's a given those "gangsta's" won't be around 10 yrs from now.
Kids....old hags from the 80's my azz lol

Joe's a ****! Aerosmith is nothing without Steven, Joe & Steve are the right combo, but every time Steven is looking at doing something he has to open his big trap. I would bet money if Steven quit the band, there would be one last tour and record and the band would be through, cause it would be crap.

Sorry Perry but without Steven Tyler there is NO Aerosmith! Even if the band retired tomorrow it would still be Steven Tyler's face and voice most remembered lol!!
As for Perry, wasn't he on A.I himself once hm?! Hypocrisy is spelt JEALOUSY lol!! It may be a reality show but Tyler's name will still be out there and he'll be seen by people who've yet to be introduced to the pleasures of Aerosmith lol!!!

Get over it Perry. You are so jealous of Steven. The band will never be as good without Steven Tyler and no one will come to see Aerosmith without Steven. You should be happy for your friend
