I had the chance to catch up with my former bandmate Joe Perry (okay, we played together one time at the Xfinity Center, but it still counts).
Joe told me he’s been talking to Steven Tyler about what they should do to honor Aerosmith’s 50th anniversary. The band is planning to hop on the phone soon to hash out their plans - including the potential for new music!
This guy does not stop. He told me he’s also putting the finishing touches on 11 songs for a new Hollywood Vampires album, before they head to Europe for a spring tour.
But, don’t think you have to fly to Europe just to see him. Joe Perry and Friends, including Aerosmith bandmates Brad Whitford and David Hull, along with Extreme’s Gary Cherone, are coming to the House of Blues on April 18. Charlie Ferren of The Joe Perry Project is also expected to make an appearance for a few songs.
Joe’s new album, Sweetzerland Manifesto, is out now. Make sure you go check it out!
He left us with an exclusive preview of a guitar solo from one of the new, unreleased Hollywood Vampires songs.
