Joe Perry, if you’re out there, please get ahold of Steven Tyler. He’s worried about you.
The Aerosmith frontman — who’s touring to promote his first solo album, We’re All Somebody From Somewhere, which comes out Friday — tells Billboard that he’s placed calls to check on his bandmate and songwriting partner without any reply. “It’s starting to scare me a little bit,” Tyler says about Perry, who collapsed onstage and was hospitalized Sunday during a show with the all-star Hollywood Vampires in Brooklyn. Perry is currently off the tour, though a statement earlier this week promised that he’ll “rejoin his fellow Vampires on stage again soon.”

Hollywood Vampires a rockin’ club of musicians
Call it the ultimate of “cover” bands.
The Hollywood Vampires, the new mega-group starring macabre rocker Alice Cooper, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry and actor Johnny Depp, is touring the country this summer with a playlist of rock hits largely made famous by bands from the 1970s.
Hall of fame songwriter Joe Perry, with Aerosmith bandmate Steven Tyler, wrote hit rock song after hit rock song.
But, during a recent interview with the Daily News, Perry had plenty of nice things to say for a fellow songwriter — a man best known for his talents on screen whether he is playing an aloof pirate or a pale, misunderstood monster.
“Johnny wrote one of the best songs on the record — and one of the best classic rock songs I’ve heard in a long time,” Perry said. Continue reading Hollywood Vampires coming to Soaring Eagle July 13
It might seem a bit gruesome at first blush, this idea of paying tribute to the dead rock stars who once populated Hollywood’s dens of iniquity as hardcore denizens of the dark. But when legendary Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry, erstwhile actor Johnny Depp, and the progenitor of shock rock Alice Cooper teamed up as Hollywood Vampires last year, the mood became far more celebratory than somber.
The Vampires picked their favorite tunes by deceased rock icons, many of whom had been friends – or at least, drinking buddies – back in the day, called a bunch of friends to round out the rhythm section, pulled in a few superstar cameos – some guy named McCartney was one of them – and tracked a glittering hard rock debut.
Jeff Miers spoke to Perry by phone a few weeks back, just as rehearsals for the tour were commencing. Here’s how it went.
Q: Playing the most recent Grammys last February with Hollywood Vampires felt, from the fan’s-eye view, like a victory for guitar-based rock ’n’ roll. We don’t hear much of that at awards shows these days. It cleared the air. How did it feel from your side of the stage?
A: It felt like you described it. Loud and raunchy and really energetic. How much more fun can you have than playing music you believe in with your friends? Continue reading Hollywood Vampires guitarist Joe Perry expresses his ‘Buffalove’
