On July 10th, the Rock World was shocked when Joe Perry collapsed on the stage reportedly due to exhaustion and dehydration. We feared for his health and prayed he would once again return to place he loves. Tomorrow, he will do just that as he returns to the stage with Hollywood Vampires in Rohnert Park, CA. What a sweet emotion for Aerosmith fans and fans of music.
Joe Perry was performing last night in Coney Island with Hollywood Vampires, when he suddenly left the stage and collapsed backstage during the first song. The Aerosmith guitarist was rushed to a Brooklyn Hospital after being transferred to Columbia Presbyterian.
Late last night his people Tweeted, “Thanks to all of the fans reaching out and asking about Joe. He is stable right now, with family and is under the best care.”
No word what caused the 65 year old to pass out or if the band will perform on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tonight.
In the meantime, let’s send him our prayers for a quick recovery because Aerosmith is planning on hitting the road in September for at least one more time.
UPDATE: Alice Cooper says that the show will go on for Hollywood Vampires. He announced on Twitter, “Vampires! Confirmed – We WILL see you in Ohio tomorrow night & for the rest of our dates! Thanks for supporting Joe!”
But according to Tom Hamilton, it sounds like it will go on without Joe. The Aerosmith bassist said, “Thankfully, Joe seems to be better than we all first feared. Here’s hoping he’s back on stage soon doing what he loves to do!”
UPDATE 2: Blink 182 will perform on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert instead of Hollywood Vampires.
If you have ever heard Steven Tyler sing, then you know that he can hit some really high notes. In fact, Skittles used his high notes to their advantage when they asked him to do a Super Bowl ad for them.
In the commercial they had someone make a painting of him using just Skittles. When the Aerosmith singer doesn’t like it, he convinces his Dorian Gray to sing his hit Dream On as high as possible. Why? So the picture will shatter into a million rainbow pieces.
Well, the advertisement was so effective that when ITV’s This Morning aired it, it actually cracked the camera’s screen.
If you would’ve told anyone that his octave is high enough to break glass, they would’ve said dream on. But it is. Which pretty gosh darn cool!

On Friday night, Neil deGrasse Tyson and Steven Tyler were guests on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and the two of them got to talk while they were waiting to appear on the CBS show. The singer asked the coolest scientist, how old would he be when he returned to Earth after traveling at the speed of light for a year. The answer is, we would all be a year older and he would be about the same age. Which might answer how he continues to look so young even though he is 67 years old.
This video is extremely cool to me because of personal reasons. You see I grew up in a place called Riverdale, NY, and both men lived in my hometown for part of their youths. In fact, both of them went to the same elementary school, years apart from each other, but still they both attended PS 81 (I didn’t) for a while. I wonder if the two of them knew that when they were talking about Space and time? Just think if they did, then they would’ve realized that if the voice of Aerosmith had spent about 15 years in a rocket ship, when he was kid, traveling at the speed of light; then they would’ve been able to go to school together. That is only if Tyler didn’t get expelled again like he did the first time. Can you imagine these two taking Science and Music classes together? The world would be a much different place. Maybe it would be flat like that clueless rapper thinks.
