The 64-year-old frontman, Steven Tyler, caused a feud with his bandmates in Aerosmith way back in 2010 when, without informing his bandmates, he joined the judging panel of American Idol.
Steven and guitarist Joe Perry openly fell out in public, but Steven is now glad they've come together on their fifteenth studio album Music From Another Dimension! and the European tour which began on June 10 at Sweden's Rock Fest and ends July 3 in Venice, Italy.
At the begining of February, Steven Tyler's management was threatening legal action if Aerosmith replaced him as their lead singer. Now, the Boston rock legends are starting a month-long "Cocked, Locked, Ready to Rock" European tour -- and Tyler is confirmed to shake his butt onstage at each of them.
The band made the announcement of reconciliation in a video that shows Tyler with his old Aerosmith bandmates and joking, “I just auditioned and I got the gig. We're coming your way and rocking your world. Look out baby, 'cause here we go again!”
"A year ago, nobody wanted to do an album," he told USA Today.
"Now we're all on the same page and we've been burning the candle at both ends. It all comes together when the band gets on stage. It's nothing but beautiful and all the cr*p melts away. That's when the band is a band, no matter what else is going on."
Joe agrees with the sentiment. The star says arguments are not always detrimental to the success of Aerosmith .
"We don't agree on everything. But the machine is bigger than the parts. We all know that. We sorted out what we had to sort out," he explained.
"Some personal things got overblown and a few things got misconstrued. We've been working together on the record for the last four months. Hey, if we didn't have disagreements, something would be wrong and the record wouldn't be what it is."
All this sweet emotion sounds like a far cry from the letter sent by Tyler's attorney Skip Miller to Aerosmith management just a few weeks ago, in which he derided the band's maneuvers to replace his client, who's battled both drug addiction and physical injuries in recent years. Miller demanded that band manager Howard Kaufman "cease and desist from engaging in acts and conduct to the harm and detriment of your own client, Aerosmith , and our client who is one of its members."
