Stop the Presses! Steven Tyler is So Totally Not Quitting Aerosmith!

Alright, I promise, no matter what happens from this point on, you won’t read about it here. But I feel like I’ve got to see this story through to its conclusion, so here goes: During a performance by the Joe Perry Project (no joke, it’s a real thing) at the Fillmore right here in New York last night, Tyler made a surprise appearance to tell the crowd (no joke, there was one) that he’s not quitting the band. And also some other stuff.

“New York, I want you to know I am not leaving Aerosmith. And Joe Perry, you are a man of many colors, but I, motherfucker, am the rainbow!”

This doesn’t make any sense, of course, but give the guys some credit for not falling down, even one time throughout the entire speech. [Arts Beat]
