It's been a relaxing, slow Saturday. I took a break from writing and watched that whole
interview.

I really enjoyed it. He's such a genuine person. At times throughout then years, I've been
bummed by certain things but all-in-all, I've always admired him. Seeing the interview reminds
me that every single one of us carries burdens and goes through struggles. We have great days
and amazing accomplishments and then we live through tough times. As humans we share these
experiences. After watching this, I'm going to focus on becoming less judgmental and trying
to see the goodness that each and every one of us brings to the table.

Thanks for posting the interview and thanks MP for being so honest about your life.

Rock stars are not usually known for making the best life decisions.    Quite often, people make stupid decisions that have an impact on their future.   Even after they wise up, it might be too late to undo past mistakes.   If put in that situation, AND faced with the opportunity to either just roll over and take it, or be presented with a very reasonable and legal opportunity to at least not have the rug ripped out from under you, most people would take the latter opportunity.

Don't get me wrong, I think (unless he really doesn't know how to perform anymore) that Aerosmith are being huge dicks doing what they're doing. That said, he has no RIGHT to be employed by them. Bands can kick out members. It sucks, but it happens.

Dude has tons of opportunity. He can retire. He can teach lessons for 2000 dollars an hour if he so chooses and never run out of clients. He can do lots of stuff. He's not out of an income.

Hope not so overdubbed like the Budokan show from the japan tv show. But James isnt good now. Out of pitch often. Its to heavy this touring for him.
I have the Budokon TV sbow.  The vocals didn't sound overdubbed at all, I think they left the vocals as is.  James sounded quite pitchy at times, and he botched "Wait for Sleep" by yelling the words. Probably the most cringeworthy part of the show, but he did ok on the most part. Still a enjoyable concert!

But wasn't he suing to be able to play with them as opposed to for money?

It says that, but he has to play in order to still have a viable legal claim to his share.  If he's not making a bid to claim, the other side could claim some sort of abandonment.   So this could still be a tactic.

Does he? From what I read (I admit not super carefully) it seemed he was trying to play a specific show, as opposed to back in the band for good.


Also, if you're almost 70 years old, and have spent the last almost 50 years in one of the most successful rock bands in history and you can't possibly survive without continued income from playing, as opposed to the royalties he still gets and income from other businesses (his food stuff), then you need a LOT more help than playing a few more tours with Aerosmith.
