Rolling Stone reports that all the hubbub the last few days over Steven Tyler's quitting Aerosmith and going solo were put to rest Tuesday night when Tyler jumped onstage with the Joe Perry Project during a show at the Fillmore.
âI just want New York to know, I am not leaving Aerosmith,â Tyler said.
âJoe Perry, you are a man of many colors. But I, M-F-er, am the rainbow!â
The band proceeded to launch into Walk This Way with Tyler behind the mike.
Through the magic of cellphones video camers and YouTube that awesome moment has been preserved for us all.

Well, their onstage musical kiss-and-makeup session still doesn't solve the apparent rift in the band (also reported by Rolling Stone, which by the way hates Browns coach Eric Mangini) stemming from Perry's desire to record an old-school 1970's style Aerosmith album while Tyler is happy with the band's recent formula of working with outside writers and making slick records packed with power ballads that make bassist Tom Hamilton cringe.
Here's hoping Perry ultimately wins the argument.
