Steven Tyler and Joe Perry have finally reconnected, according to a Monday night Twitter post from the lead singer and American Idol judge.
"AeroFreaks rejoice... Joe [Perry] and I sent smoke signals, shot the shit and chewed the fat for the last year, but just smoked the peace pipe for an hour today. On our way to rockin' your fkin worlds this summer by locking ourselves away somewhere w/guitars and drums..."
Aerosmith, without Perry, hooked up about a month ago for the first in a series of planned writing sessions for a new album; Joe was unable to join the week-long workshop at the studio of co-writer Marti Frederiksen due to other commitments.
Despite speculation that Perry’s MIA status was a concern, the band insisted it missed Joe’s participation, while Perry reassured fans, via Twitter, that he’s actively involved and that the January session was simply the beginning of the process.
The new album will be Aerosmith's first since 2004’s “Honkin' on Bobo.”
