Joe Perry of Aerosmith


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.

Zoiks! Online Interviews: Aerosmith’s Tom Hamilton


Since I was in Junior High I’ve been a die-hard Aerosmith fan. Unfortunately for me they were 20 years into their career. I honestly like every single Aerosmith album. I like some more than others, but I like all of them. It’s been 10 years since the last Aerosmith album of new material “Just Push Play” and if I’m being honest I was worried the new album “Music From Another Dimension” wasn’t going to be very good. As soon as the opening riff to “Luv XXX” hit I was sold. It’s one of my favorite Aerosmith albums; I think it’s the best since “Night in the Ruts.” As soon as I heard it, I begged my Aerosmith contact to let me have an interview and here it is, with Tom Hamilton.
