    I've just heard an update to this story:

    they are are now downsizing the whole band to two techs, who will be using this:

    and a very large projected image during live shows.

    They expect to do a world tour in 2 months as the techs need time to complete the game on expert mode.

    True story -- or at least this was told to me as true by an old co-worker who was a big Aerosmith fan from the beginning: Back in the dark days of the late 1970's/early 1980's when Aerosmith was in the doldrums of their career (pre-Pump & MTV) they were still touring regularly & indulging in the excesses that rock stars are reputed to.

    Apparently for quite a number of these gigs Steve Perry was simply too drunk/stoned/phuct up to perform. But the band just went on as a 4-piece, and Joe Perry more-than-competantly sang lead for their entire set.

    Anyone ever see one of these shows who can confirm this story?

    Oh man, that was a scream. I laughed hardest at this part: "the band's experiments as a drug-trafficking cartel from 1978 to 1984" Long live the Onion!:D

    Their career was toast until the Run-DMC collaboration.
