BOSTON, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry says the U.S. rockers' lead singer, Steven Tyler, apparently bagged on the band after a United Arab Emirates show.

Speaking with the Las Vegas Sun Friday, Perry said he believes Tyler quit Aerosmith after a recent concert in Abu Dhabi and an online report appears to confirm his suspicion.

"Steven quit, as far as I can tell," Perry said. "I don't know anymore than you do about it. I got off the plane two nights ago. I saw online that Steven said that he was going to leave the band. I don't know for how long, indefinitely or whatever."

Perry told the Sun he would attempt to keep Aerosmith moving forward, even if Tyler part ways with his bandmates.

"Right now I'm adjusting to how we're going to go on," Perry said from his home in Boston.

Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton told the Boston Herald Tyler, 61, announced after the band's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix show that he was planning on going solo.

Hamilton downplayed Tyler's comment, saying Aerosmith members are no strangers to conflict from their nearly 40 years together.

"Steven's always mad at us," Hamilton said.
