After Joey Kramer and Steven Tyler wrote their autobiographies, it was only a matter of time before Joe Perry penned his own. Now is the time that fans can enjoy “Rocks: Life In and Out of Aerosmith.” BackstageAxxess had an opportunity to talk with Joe about his opportunity and why now is the right time to release it. We also talked to Joe about his childhood and growing up in the outdoors. What is the current state of the Joe Perry solo band? You will find out right here.
There are few people who can make such an impact on an art form that, in turn, are able create their own definition of it. Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has many accolades under his belt, including Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, being enrolled into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Grammies, various guitar awards etc., etc. When looking at Rock and Roll music as it currently sits, Perry and his bandmates have certainly left their mark on music that will go on forever. As many may try to duplicate his riffs, no one can emulate the style that is all upon its own. When defining the term Rock and Roll, it should have a photo of Joe Perry next to it. Joe oozes coolness that no one can duplicate.
Of course, what the book really focuses on is the tumultuous relationship between Perry and vocalist Steven Tyler. We dive right in on Tyler’s reaction to this book and his other band members reactions as well. Of course, writing a book is a labor of love and Joe talks about how he was able to focus on completing it with the strength of his wife Billie and the rest of his family’s support.
In addition, we talked about what Perry has learned from the fans by doing promotional appearances for the book. We at BackstageAxxess are proud to present an interview with Mr. Cool himself, Joe Perry!
For the month of November, we will be giving away an autographed copy of the book to one lucky reader. Check back to the site for details on how to win.
