Perry Still Angry Over Idol

Tension is not far below the surface of Joe Perry over the soon-to-be announced deal that Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler will be a judge on the upcoming season of American Idol.  Tyler tried to defuse the anger that arose in part because he kept the others in the dark about his plans to join the talent show's judge ranks by pointing out that it would result in great exposure for the band as a whole.  Association with the show is something Perry seems to think is anything but positive for the group.  The ongoing resentment is again raising questions about whether Perry will try and convince the other band members to recruit a replacement for Tyler once the current tour wraps up in Vancouver on September 16.  Comments the guitarist has made suggest that he finds the idea that Tyler's commitment to the show could leave the group idle for up to seven months a betrayal and unacceptable.  Replacing Tyler even temporarily will be a tough sell. Other band members and probably 90% of the fan base know Aerosmith ain't Aerosmith unless Tyler is out front.
