Sources claim that tension between frontman Steven Tyler and fellow rockers Joey Perry, Tom Hamilton, Brad Whitford and Joey Kramer has been increased due to poor record and ticket sales. The group's first release in ten years, Music From Another Dimension!, didn't meet expectations when it failed to climb to the top of the American charts.
Meanwhile, none of the dates on their current Global Warming Tour have sold out. 'The band isn't really talking. Aerosmith's record came in fifth after Taylor Swift [Red], Now That's What I Call Music: Volume 44, Rod Stewart's Merry Christmas, Baby and Ne-Yo's new release [R.E.D.]. Pretty bad for their first release in a decade,' a source told New York Post. 'No dates on the current tour are sold out. Meanwhile, [Steven's business manager Dina] LaPolt is doing a reality-show pilot instead of focusing on Tyler's career, and his career needs help.'
