In the interview, Whitford was questioned on the possibility of the band touring with a different singer. Whitford responded,” Absolutely, we have considered it, but whether it will happen I don’t know. I think it would be great.”
Aerosmith’s lead guitarist Joe Perry gave a statement denying that the band is looking for a new singer. His statement reads:
"Any rumor out there about us looking for another singer is completely untrue. All five of us were just on the phone together talking about how excited we are to go to South America and Mexico City."
Perry is referencing a forthcoming tour that runs from the end of September to the end of October, Sept. 29-Oct. 27.
