And Live performance from Wembley Arena London – April 11, 2010
Aerosmith founding member Joe Perry’s volatile bond with frontman Steven Tyler is chronicled in his memoir, “Rocks: My Life In and Out of Aerosmith.” The guitarist also has recorded five solo albums and this year produced a Christmas EP. The 64-year-old father of three sons has been married twice — since 1985 to current wife Billie — and although he no longer pilots his own plane, he and his wife spend time relaxing with their horses or scuba diving.
Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry chats with Chris about where they thought Aerosmith was going in the early days of the band, his views on Roswell and aliens, and his holiday EP. He also talks about his book ROCKS: My Life In and Out of Aerosmith, in which he tells numerous stories about Aerosmith and more!

One of the two principal members of Aerosmith, Joe Perry, has shared stories of their career in a new book, Rocks: My Life In and Out of Aerosmith. He and fellow “toxic twin” of Aerosmith, singer Steven Tyler, were the primary architects of the sound that defined teenagers lives in recurring decades, defying the typical path of success to become a multigenerational phenomenon. He took time to provide insight into the Boston band’s four decades of work with HPR All Things Considered Local Host – and former Boston resident himself – Dave Lawrence.
