Steven Tyler, frontman of rock legends Aerosmith, has reportedly parted ways with the band, which will celebrate 40 years of making music in 2010.
The father of Lord of the Rings actress Liv recently revealed that he will not accompany the band on an upcoming tour of South America, opting instead to focus on solo projects.
Though Steven has yet to confirm the split, lead guitarist Joe Perry commented, "Steven quit, as far as I can tell."
Joe also said that the band would consider continuing without the singer.
"I think performing without Steven has crossed people's minds."
