Aerosmith ‘Barely Speaking to Each Other’ According to Reports
After a tepid first week of sales of their new album ‘Music From Another Dimension,’ reports are surfacing that the members of Aerosmith are at odds once again. The new album — their first of new music in a decade — sold just 65K copies last week, ranking fifth overall on the Billboard album sales chart.
The New York Post quotes an unidentified source who says things are frosty between Steven Tyler, Joe Perry and company. “The band isn’t really talking,” the source says. “No dates on the current tour are sold out. Meanwhile, (Tyler attorney Dina) LaPolt is doing a reality-show pilot instead of focusing on Tyler’s career, and his career needs help.”
A band spokesman disputes the claims of trouble, saying “Aerosmith is doing great and on tour and on fire. Any claim to the contrary is absolutely false.”
A second source tells Page Six that Tyler is blaming his record label for the lackluster reception to ‘Music From Another Dimension,’ released on Election Day. Furthermore many wonder if the singer and fiance Erin Brady are having trouble, but the band contact says any whispers of a breakup are just rumor while reminding fans that “just as any couple goes through trials and tribulations in a relationship, Steven and Erin have asked for their privacy at this time.”
Aerosmith’s Global Warming Tour is in Austin, Texas tonight (Nov. 16) before coming to play Madison Square Garden on Tuesday (Nov. 20).
