Joe Perry Rides Again!

Joe Perry knows all the moves. Here he gets feedback by angling his tiger-finish signature model Gibson Les Paul at a monitor. It’s a cool technique for making a 6-string howl without standing in front of an amp cranked up to 10.

Joe Perry – The Sweetzerland Manifesto (Album Review)

reviewThere are few things scarier than an Aerosmith song with Joe Perry on lead vocals, which makes the prospect of him fronting an entire album decidedly terrifying. But, let’s assuage those fears early. On ‘The Sweetzerland Manifesto’, as with most of the guitarist’s solo offerings, he’s roped in some guest singers to deliver exactly the kind of record you’d expect from such an old school gunslinger.  Continue reading Joe Perry – The Sweetzerland Manifesto (Album Review)

With a little help from his friends, Joe Perry is back with a solo album

Joe Perry isn’t quite sure how to describe his new solo LP.

“It’s kind of a modern-made classic rock record, I guess,” says Perry, chuckling.

The Aerosmith guitarist was back in town this week for an appearance at Newbury Comics promoting “Sweetzerland Manifesto,” an album he wrote and recorded while holed up at his buddy Johnny Depp’s house in LA.

Among those conscripted to play or sing on the LP — Perry’s sixth solo project — were Dean and Robert DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots, Depp, Terry Reid, Cheap Trick’s Robin Zander, drummer Zak Starkey, and former New York Dolls frontman David Johansen.

Joe Perry to sign copies of ‘Sweetzerland Manifesto’ at Newbury Comics

Famed Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry dropped his star-studded sixth solo album Sweetzerland Manifesto last week, and now he’s coming back to Boston to sign the shit out of it. Perry will be rolling by Newbury Comics on Newbury Street on Thursday (January 25), and the in-store starts up at 6 p.m.

Perry unveiled the record at The Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles last week, leading a band that featured guitarist Dean DeLeo and bassist Robert DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots, Aerosmith keyboardist Buck Johnson, and drummer David Goodstein. Slash and Johnny Depp also showed up on stage, while Extreme’s Gary Cherone took on vocal duties for most of the show, stepping aside for a series of frontman guests, including Terry Reid, David Johanson, Robin Zander and Chris Robinson.

Reid, Johanson, and Zander all show up on Sweetzerland Manifesto, a 10-track effort that blows any recent Steven Tyler solo project out of the water. Check out the track listing and guest collaborators below, and listen to the LP in full via Spotify.
