Steven Tyler tweets that he and guitarist Joe Perry have "smoked the peace pipe."  For a while, it wasn't clear if Perry was going to be involved with Aerosmith's new album, since he reportedly was no where to be found while the rest of the band worked together in LA before Tyler started live Idol shows.   But all seems well now.  Tyler tweeted, "Joe & I sent smoke signals...shot the (blank) & chewed the fat for the last year...but just smoked the peace pipe for an hour today and are on our way to rockin your (blank) worlds this summer by locking ourselves away somewhere with guitars and drums."

'Bout time!
Tyler is also releasing a tell-all book May 10th.  We hope the peace pipe is still lit after he dishes on Perry and the rest of the band.
