Aerosmith had the opportunity to meet with President Obama recently. And it didn’t take long for this picture to get uploaded to Twitter. Soon after it was posted however, Aerosmith’s Joey Kramer made sure to point out that this picture in no way depicted the band’s political views. He didn’t want to be pulled into the political “banter.” He added: “I’m not saying who I support! I don’t support anyone speaking for me!”

The picture was removed from the official twitter page shortly after comments ensued following his statement.

His band members definitely enjoyed the opportunity to speak with the president. Perry said: “This was the first time I’ve ever met a president, a seated president. It was pretty flipped out — and it was definitely worth the wait.”

“It was one of those things where if we planned, something would’ve screwed up. But after a month in South America?”

“Steven and I have had some pretty cool adventures, but this one is right up there.”

Interestingly enough they have tried to stay out of politics. Last year Donald Trump was using their song, “Dream On” at his rallies, but was asked to stop.

Attorneys for Tyler said Trump “did ‘not have our client’s permission to use Dream On’ or any of Tyler’s other songs and it ‘gives the false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr Trump’s presidential bid.”

Of course Trump tried to turn things in his favor. Saying he found a “‘better one to take its place’ and took credit for the publicity Tyler had gotten.”

He wrote: “Steven Tyler got more publicity on his song request than he’s gotten in ten years. Good for him!”

So at the end of the day, it sounds like this band is trying to stay as far out of this as they can. But are they successful or are they just making a bigger deal out of the mess?
