Relax, Aerosmith fans: Steven Tyler says he isn't leaving the band.
Tyler made a surprise appearance with guitarist Joe Perry and his band at a New York City venue and told the crowd: "I am not leaving Aerosmith."
Rolling Stone and Billboard magazines reported that the pair then launched into their song Walk This Way.
The appearance seemed to put an end to speculation about the band's future.
Perry recently tweeted that Aerosmith was "looking for a new singer to work with" and told the Las Vegas Sun that Tyler had quit, as far as he could tell.
The 61-year-old Tyler was injured when he fell off a stage during an August 5 performance in South Dakota, and the band cancelled the remainder of its summer tour.
