Perry told the Las Vegas Sun today that he believes Tyler is history.
“Steven quit as far as I can tell,” Perry said from his Boston home. “I
don’t know anymore than you do about it. I got off the plane two nights ago. I
saw online that Steven said that he was going to leave the band. I don’t know
for how long, indefinitely or whatever. Other than that, I don’t know.”
Part of the problem, he says, is that Tyler doesn’t return his phone
“He’s notorious for that,” Perry said. “That’s one thing I’ve
learned to live with. I try to overlook it. I like to pick my battles. Frankly,
the last few months I’ve been wanting not to rock the boat. I don’t want him
canceling any more gigs. We really wanted to do these last four. We just kind of
didn’t want to call him out or anything and get him anymore pissed off, for
whatever reason. So we just let things lie. So we did the gigs and, like I said,
I got off the plane and saw this online. That’s how I know about it.”
If it is true that Tyler has left the band, lets take a few minutes to admire his greatest creation, shall we?
