Steven Tyler

If I Read Joe Perry's Book

It's Gonna Be War

11/6/2014 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Steven Tyler Joe Perry BookSteven Tyler's not trying to derail the gravy train that is Aerosmith ... which is why he doesn't want to know if he gets slammed in guitarist Joe Perry's new autobiography. 

We asked Steven outside Bar Louie in Nashville Wednesday night ... if he's gonna read the book, and his answer was pretty simple -- "HELL NO!"

Check out the clip though -- his explanation kinda explains how he and Joe have kept the band together for 44 years.

On the other hand -- Steven also said he loves bossing around his band mates ... which should go over well during their next tour.

Corey Feldman Singing
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears ... is exactly what Corey Feldman did during a recent karaoke sesh in Hollywood -- and we got the painful footage.

Corey hit up Whiskey Blu Wednesday, where anyone -- even Corey -- can sing karaoke with a live band. He opted to jam out on the Aerosmith classic, "Dream On."

We'll say this for Feldman ... he brought some energy to the stage -- and even dared to attempt Steven Tyler's legendary scream. 

Attempt.

Joe Perry

Vandalizes Wall

Dude Looks Like a Tagger

EXCLUSIVE

0403_joe_perry_graffiti_aerosmith_photos_launchAerosmith guitarist Joe Perry -- rock god, and hardcore scofflaw ... after bombing the band's logo on a building without the owner's consent ... all for a guerrilla marketing campaign.

TMZ has obtained photos and video taken very early Thursday morning of Perry tagging the wall of a production studio in downtown Los Angeles.

040314_joe_perry_graff_launch
Our street art sources tell us Perry contacted a local graffiti artist named RISK to scout locations where they could plaster the Aerosmith logo and "Let Rock Rule" ... the name of their upcoming tour.

Problem is it caused a major issue for the owner of the building -- who tells TMZ they were slated to do a photo shoot on the wall Perry defaced.  

The owner says he's a big Aerosmith fan so he's not pressing charges -- but he had no idea about Perry's tagging mission ... and was forced to push back their client's shoot so they could paint over the wall ASAP (below).

Law enforcement sources tell us if Perry is caught in the act -- marketing or not -- he will be arrested for vandalism.

We reached out to Perry ... and in true rockstar fashion he said, "let the music do the talking."

BOOB ALERT -- if you didn't already know it was Steven Tyler in this video ... you might think there were two topless chicks cruising around in the back of a Jeep Wrangler like drunk high schoolers.

The person who shot the footage tells TMZ, he honestly believed he was being tailed by a car with two topless women -- until the Jeep got close enough for him to see ... it was actually Steven.

It's unbelievable. You can even hear Steven singing at the top of his lungs.

We've said it before ... but this time, dude really looked like a lady.

MJ's People Expose Big Stars as Drug Addicts

Michael Jackson's people have just thrown Britney Spears, George Michael, Van Halen, Aerosmith and other big names under a big tour bus, because MJ's people have just labeled them hard-core drug abusers just to make a point in a lawsuit.

Here's the deal.  Lloyds of London has refused to pay  benefits under an insurance policy that AEG took out in case MJ was not able perform for the "This Is It" tour.  Lloyds rejected the claim on grounds Michael and AEG defrauded the company by failing to fess up that MJ was a drug abuser.

Now the bus.  The Michael Jackson Company (MJC) sued Lloyds, demanding payment.  MJC claims in public documents -- obtained by TMZ -- that a number of artists, including Britney, George, Van Halen, Aerosmith, Kings of Leon, AC/DC, Johnny Hallyday and Whitney Houston all were known drug addicts and all of them applied for similar insurance to Lloyds.

MJC wants to see how the other rock stars were treated to determine if Michael is being singled out unfairly.

Short story -- to make their case, they're going to tar and feather every other rock star and act in sight.

Aerosmith

Cancels Indonesia Concert

After Bomb Scare

breaking news

0506_Aerosmith_gettyAerosmith has cancelled a concert in Indonesia scheduled for Saturday after two militants were arrested for allegedly plotting to blow up the Myanmar Embassy.

A promoter for the show in Jakarta blamed the cancellation on safety concerns -- it's unclear if there was a direct threat to the band or the concert venue.

Cops in Indonesia said two suspected militants had been arrested in connection to the bomb threats -- and explosives were seized. According to reports, the militants are suspected of plotting to use the bombs against the Myanmar Embassy in Jakarta to protest Myanmar's treatment of Muslims.

Aerosmith apologized for the cancellation and promised to make it up to the fans there, but there was no immediate news about rescheduling.

Steven Tyler

I Spent $5 Mil on Cocaine

breaking news

0222-steven-tyler-tmz
Steven Tyler says he "snorted half of Peru" over the course of his drug-addled rock career -- easily spending at least $5 million on cocaine before he finally kicked the habit.

The Aerosmith singer revealed the drug numbers on Australia's "60 Minutes" this week, saying he spent a fortune on booger sugar as a young rock star ...  "Probably, realistically, 5 or 6 [million], easy ... You could also say I snorted half of Peru, but, you know, it's what we did."

Tyler's been open about his former drug addiction for a while now -- telling Matt Lauer back in 2011, "I needed that cocaine. I needed it." But he said it ruined him, adding, "It took my children away, it took my marriages away. I was on my knees."

Tyler sobered up in the mid 80s but later relapsed. He was diagnosed with Hepatitis C in 2003, which he believes he contracted as a result of his intravenous drug use.

Tyler's been in and out of rehab numerous times, but now considers himself sober.

TMZ CHALLENGE!!!!

See if you can watch this video of a mankini-sportin' Steven Tyler bangin' away in a drum circle in Maui ... and NOT stare at his drumstick.

Impossible, right????!

Anyway, we obtained this incredible footage of the Aerosmith singer layin' down a beat during one of those hippy drum circles usually reserved for Venice Beach ... or Matt McConaughey's house.

Word on the street is ... the hot chick in the background is Tyler's rebound chick ... which sorta makes sense since there have been reports he broke up with fiancee Erin Brady.

In related news ... penis.

Steven Tyler Gives Beyonce

HOT PASS

on Fake National Anthem

Beyonce could've done a sock puppet lip-sync of the "Star Spangled Banner" -- as far as Steven Tyler's concerned -- as long as her smoking bod was in plain view at the Inauguration.

Steven was outside the Viper Room, and when we asked about B's lip-syncing debacle he said ...  "Beyonce's so hot she can do anything. Let's just get real."

Aerosmith's frontman didn't seem the least bit bent about the controversy, and even belted out ... "Whatever gets you through the night" ... LIVE, mind you.

So, has Steven ever, y'know -- faked it?

Check the clip and get the answer straight from those famous lips.

With the crowd going wild, the 49-year-old "Pirates of the Caribbean" star jammed with the band for two songs.  Johnny's impromptu gig comes just days after he performed with Alice Cooper at his concert at the Orpheum Theater last week.

Fun Fact: In the '90s, Johnny played guitar/bass as part of the alternative music group P.

Drops F-Bomb on 'Today'

Steven Tyler had a rough morning -- not only did he not know what show he was on, he also dropped an F-bomb on live television! 

Tyler -- who is probably never awake at such an early hour -- performed with Aerosmith on the "Today" show this morning ... only he thought he was on a different program. Al Roker's reaction ... priceless.

Then, while Roker was giving a weather update, Tyler screamed in the background to the crowd, "Thanks for coming out, you crazy f**ks!"

And now you know why rock stars perform at night.
