I was only ever a casual fan of the band, but here it goes:

http://loudwire.com/steven-tyler-confirms-aerosmith-2017-farewell-tour/

I was reading the apocryphal book of Sirach and one verse goes:
"Forsake not an old friend; for the new is not comparable to him;
A new friend is as new wine; when it is old, thou shalt drink it with pleasure."

It made me realize how fortunate Tyler is to have managed this long with his band mates. They've acquired so much experience together. They know each other's musical persona inside and out. Very tough to replace that kind of harmony you've formed with a whole new band. This is true about most long-running bands, in fact. This is considering the fame, pressure, and every other hardship that goes with pursuing their passion. Talent is one thing, but motivation and strength is a whole 'nother factor that makes relationships among band mates more unpredictable. Let us take this lesson to heart.

I haven't cared for much of their post '80s work but hell, they've had a good run and certainly deserve a well earned retirement. Fare thee well, fellas.

I am not surprised, not because of their age, but Steven Tyler seems so intent on launching his solo career at the expense of his band. I do not blame Steven Tyler for wanting to try something new, thou I do feel this new direction is ill advised and personally am going to miss the band, and have feeling so will Mr Tyler in time.

I haven't really been "on board" with these guys since the early '90's but if the timing and price is right, I wouldn't mind seeing them as they still put on a good show and it's still the original line up.
Good point, muckie, about the long running bands. I think the money is why a lot of people stick it out, even though they are miserable.

Cant say I am surprised Steven Tyler has made mention and shown desire to go solo. Aerosmith as an entity might be retiring but i wouldnt be surprised if Joe Perry went back to being solo

Speaking of Aerosmith Joey Kramer's coffeehouse opens I think friday in North Attleborough MA (90 mins from me and my inlaws live there) I intend to be checking this place out

He seems like he thinks he's an American Idol pop singer ever since he did that American Idol show. The fact remains, he is not nor will he ever be. He is a rock singer which is completely different than the garbage cranked out by the pop machine. They are looking for clones, of which Tyler does not fit.

If Steven would have tried out for American Idol as an unknown singer, he never would have made the show. He has a unique voice and a charismatic style, but again, that isn't what modern pop/country is looking for.

If they come my way I'll probably go see this final tour. Always loved Aerosmith. The 70's and early 80's were my favorite time for the band but I even like the more pop albums that others don't like. (However, their last studio album was mostly a travesty.)

I read Joey Kramer's book. He was the last guy to detox.
He had it the worst in the band...shrinks, crying, depression, dad treated him bad issues.
Perry an Tyler were it. The other musicians suffered. They all partied extreme though.
I read that same line in Sirach, about 3 weeks ago.
I also read in the same book to have no dealings with female musicians - lol
Tyler and Nugent and eh hm Bret Micheals,
were suppose to do Lacaniafest , motorcycle gathering in NH.....
A few 1000 people milled about...tickets went to 5 bucks......
Enemy Remains PAID to play....gig was cancelled ...want money back
Promoter can't be found ...Laconia want $60,000 for police, met coverage, fire trucks
Tyler sang and performed though.....fiasco....

LOL! Exactly the reason why it's apocryphal! But nonetheless, the quote I gave is good enough. Have to separate the baby from the bathwater. Wink

Anybody read that article in yahoo....
That Joe Perry doesn't agree with Tyler ...
What else is new.
There were a few things in Tyler's book.....that struck me as being odd.
But this, without a band mutual total decision, is thee oddest.
Tyler should just say he's flat out quitting....etc....

If they hit my area (which I am sure they will as Im 90 mins from foxboro and 60 mins from mohegan sun casino) and the tickets are affordable ill go. Would love to hear some of the older stuff. Especially if this is their farewell tour (so they say look at Kiss they had one and theyre still making albums)

I drove by Kramer's Coffeehouse friday it was packed. Definitely plan to stop and check it out after its been open for a bit. If i am able to will snap some pics and share.
