My first guitar hero was Joe Perry from Aerosmith. I was turned onto the band in Jr. High. “Get a Grip” had just come out and I had heard them play “Dream On” with Michael Kamen’s orchestra on MTV. I bought the “Greatest Hits” and from there fell into a deeper and deeper appreciation for Aerosmith’s music. My favorite album of all time is Aerosmith’s “Rocks.” Joe Perry recently released his memoir “Rocks: My Life in and Out of Aerosmith.” i was predestined to love this book. That said Joe Perry went out of his way to knock himself off of the pedestal I put him on. This book doesn’t glorify the sex or the drugs and it’s not about throwing Steven Tyler or anybody else in his life under the proverbial bus. It’s just Joe Perry telling his story, this could have been anybody’s story it just happens to be his.

Next Tuesday Uncle Ted is going to unleash “Ultralive Ballistickrock.” I’ve always been a greatest hits Ted Nugent fan. He’s one of the best guitar players of all time. It wasn’t until I listened to “Ultralive Ballistickrock” that I realized just how impressive Ted Nugent really was/is. There are certain guitar players that can actually turn me on with their playing and Ted Nugent is now one of those guys for me. A month or so ago I got that chance to chat with Uncle Ted about the upcoming live release. Check it out here.
In 2011 the country of Japan suffered a horrific tsunami, earthquake followed by a nuclear meltdown. Aerosmith went there to raise money and awareness. They’re releasing a DVD/Blu-Ray to chronicle the bands trip there. I’m a huge Aerosmith fan and the track list on the Blu-Ray is astounding. “S.O.S.,” “Lick and a Promise,” “Movin’ Out,” “Monkey on my Back,” all the deep cuts to go along with “Sweet Emotion” and “Walk this Way.” Recently I got the chance to chat with Aerosmith’s drummer Joey Kramer to talk about the new release along with his book “Hit Hard” and his Rockin & Roastin’ coffee.
