“Bad Man” — the single Perry recorded with Pitbull, singer Robin Thicke and blink-182 drummer Travis Barker — hasn’t had much of an impact on the charts since making its debut earlier this year. But it’s resurfaced in recent days through its use as the soundtrack for TNT’s campaign to promote its NBA playoffs coverage, and the artists reassembled to film a commercial clip, which you can watch above.

Joe Perry called in, and when he does, he always has a lot to say. Of course I had to ask him about his 2 Grammy performances, his collaboration with Pitbull, the passing of Lemmy, the history of the original Hollywood Vampires, working with Johnny Depp, and taking the band on tour. But, we also talked about Brian Johnson recent announcement about his hearing, and how Joe protects his, after decades of live perfomances, the passing of George Martin, and obviously I had to ask about the state of Aerosmith and his ongoing relationship with Steven Tyler. I think I may have woken him up, he sounded kind of sleepy!
The Aerosmith guitarist jammed with Alice Cooper, Pit Bull, and more.
It’s an honor to be asked to perform at the Grammys, but to hit the stage twice means that you’re definitely doing something right. Such was the case with Aerosmith’s Joe Perry.
Perry first appeared playing guitar next to Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper, and Duff McKagan as part of Hollywood Vampires, in a medley that also included a tribute to the late Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead.
The guitarist appeared later in the show as well, joining Pitbull, blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, and Robin Thicke for Pitbull’s songs “El Taxi” and “Bad Man.” It was a true change of pace from “Walk This Way,” but Perry was able to get some riffs in the mix.
Pitbull, Robin Thicke, Travis Barker, and Joe Perry took the stage to rehearse their Grammys performance. Take a look!
With Monday’s Grammy Awards ceremony approaching, musicians continue hitting the STAPLES Center stage in preparation for their performances.
Among the performers to take the stage were Pitbull, Robin Thicke, and Travis Barker, who united to perfect their planned collaboration.
Upon announcing the number, CBS and the Recording Academy teased that “special guests” would join the aforementioned three names on stage.
While not officially announced on any Grammys press material, word had already emerged that Joe Perry is one of those special guests. Perry accordingly joined Pitbull, Thicke, and Barker at a recent rehearsal.
The foursome will presumably play their collaborative single “Bad Man.” (Edit: The artists indeed played “Bad Man,” and the song’s producer Ricky Reed played guitar during the performance)
The 58th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony airs Monday night at 8PM ET/5PM PT. In advance of the broadcast, CBS shared photos from the preparation session:
