Steven Tyler fires back at bandmate over song remarks

Steven Tyler has hit back at Aerosmith pal Joe Perry after the guitarist took a swipe at the star’s new solo project.
Perry, 65, mocked the singer’s plans to record a country album and after hearing the first track in January (16), he confessed he wasn’t exactly impressed.
Speaking about the song Red White and You, Joe said, “If I didn’t know him when I heard the song I’d go, ‘It’s OK, next’. I’m not going to say anything else about that.
“Steven is in Nashville doing whatever he’s doing. He’s got a rhinestone cowboy hat going ‘Yippee ki yay!’ I don’t know what else to say about that.”
Now Steven, 67, has hit back, telling TMZ.com, “Jealousy runs deep in this family. He’s doing what he’s doing and I do what I do.”
The two bandmates have a long history of feuding – in a 2012 TV interview, Joe said he and his fellow old rocker were like “two silverback gorillas”, adding, “They tear branches, and rip up the ground and scream and yell.”
But the duo has never come to blows, joking that Tyler needs his jaw to sing.
