Aerosmith's Steven Tyler: How I Helped Reunite Guns N' Roses

Aerosmith vocalist Steven Tyler claims he played a role in the reconciliation of Guns N' Roses classic-lineup members which led to the latest "semi-reunion."

He tells Howard Stern: "I'm sure I'm not solely responsible, but I did meet Axl in a couple of clubs a year ago and two years ago and three years ago.

"I said, 'You need to get fucking back together again soon, because we all miss you.' Same thing someone said to me when Joe [Perry] and I were fighting.

"'You've gotta get back together. What are you, crazy?' In fact, it was Jon Bon Jovi. I'm in rehab. He calls me up and goes, 'What the fuck are you in rehab? The world needs you. We're out here ripping it up, and everybody's asking for Aerosmith. You need to get out of here, because people in the world need you.'

"So I'd say to Axl, 'You've gotta get together. There's a place and time where if you don't, you're gonna miss it.'

"And in another four or five years, no one's gonna even know who they were or care if they're on tour, and that's Steven Tyler's opinion. And also, I'm the lead singer of another great band, so I have a right to feel that way. I have such a huge ego about keeping the fire and the music together.

"Because if people come up to me and say, 'Dude, I got laid to your music,' or a woman comes up to me and says, 'We got married to your songs.' You had something to do with the fabric of people. Guns N' Roses had something to do with the fabric of humans on this planet, so I get fucking pissed."

Asked if he thinks the GN'R reunion will last, Tyler replied: "The point is they're talking to each other. They got an offer for something, and at least they're going out. I think the world needs to hear their music. End of story.

"I can only hope that Axl sees that the greater picture is to not be angry at Duff or Slash, for Axl to understand that he's the lead singer in a great band and the world wants to see Axl with the original band. They love him alone too. He's the shit alone.

"He's fucking great. Axl's great."
