[ # ] Joe Perry is ‘awake and alert’ after ‘shortness of breath’ scare
November 12th, 2018 under Aerosmith

On Saturday night, Joe Perry joined Billy Joel on stage at Madison Square Garden. All seemed well when they sang Walk This Way together, but then things took a turn for the worse.

The 68-year-old had problems breathing and paramedics worked on him for 40 minutes. Once he was stable enough, he was rushed to the hospital.

His manager, Paul Geary, told Us Weekly, “He had just walked off stage after performing with Billy Joel, and immediately complained of shortness of breath.” Then he added, “The in-house EMTs connected an oxygen tank and decided to take him to the hospital. He’s awake and alert this morning.”

This is not the first time that he has been rushed to the hospital after a performance in NYC. Two years ago, while performing with Vampire Weekend, he barely made it off the stage before collapsing. Even though Steven Tyler was born in Riverdale of The Bronx, Aerosmith should consider not doing any shows in the five boroughs for Perry’s sake.
