Chill out, Aerosmith fans: Steven Tyler isn’t leaving the band.
Tyler made a surprise appearance with guitarist Joe Perry in New York City Tuesday night, where he refuted whispers that he’s out at the group’s lead vocalist.
“I am not leaving Aerosmith,” Tyler thundered before launching into the band’s smash single “Walk This Way.”
Tyler’s appearance ends speculation about the band’s future. Last weekend, Perry told The Las Vegas Sun that Tyler, 61, had unceremoniously ditched the band after falling off a stage during an Aug. 5 performance in South Dakota.
