Joe Perry has broken his silence about not joining his Aerosmith bandmates during the Los Angeles writing sessions for their next album, which wrapped up last week. He writes on his Twitter page, "Let\'s get this straight. I am not leaving Aerosmith. I will be writing on the new CD. [I] just could not make the last eight day writing stint. We need all five members to write a real Aerosmith CD. We have plans to write in the spring for an extended time period." As for his relationship with Steven Tyler, he says, "Steven and I text all of the time. He\'s my brother in arms just like Brad [Whitford], Joey [Kramer] and Tom [Hamilton]. Everything else is a rumor."
Like Joe Perry and Joey Kramer, Steven Tyler now has a Twitter account. He also talks about the recent writing sessions, saying he wrote six songs, one of which is called "Oxygen," and that he is in "lyric hell." Tyler also says he found naked pictures of the band for his autobiography, Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?, which will be published on May 10th.
