Joe Perry - Joe Perry: 'Aerosmith Won't Perform On Idol Finale'

Joe Perry has questioned his bandmate Steven Tyler's announcement Aerosmith will perform on the season finale of American Idol, insisting it's "not logistically possible".
Perry fell out with Tyler after he announced plans to take an indefinite hiatus from the band in late 2009. The group reunited last year (10) but their friendship hit the rocks again after Tyler took up his post on Idol, alongside Jennifer Lopez.
Tyler insists they have since made amends and are working on new music together - and earlier this month (May11) revealed he plans to get Aerosmith to perform on the final episode of the reality show, saying, "We're playing the last show of the season. When I came on board, of course they were talking about, 'Are you going to sing with the contestants?' I said, 'I'll do a song, sure,' but it was always my intention, always, to get Aerosmith on the show."
But now Perry has refuted his bandmate's claims in a series of posts on his Facebook.com page, revealing he'd be happy to perform - but not yet.
He writes, "(We're) not playing 'Idol' 'cause we were never asked by producers. (Guitarist) Brad (Whitford) has (a) gig that night with Experience Hendrix. It's not logistically possible. Aerosmith's looking forward to playing 'American Idol' next season when our new CD is out and we can prepare a kick-a** show if they ask us.
"Really looking forward to recording with Aerosmith this July (and) August to finish our long-awaited CD... There is no peace pipe to smoke because I have no problem with anything Steven is doing."

Joe and Brad you had better support Steven and perform on the last show of the season. All of your US fans have been looking forward to it. Just get someone to sit in for Brad. Or Brad could reschedule his performance of the Experience Hendrix. This is a big deal performing on the show. May get you guys a lot more fans. And this means a lot to your current fans too. Don't let us down.
