Joe Perry Recovering After Collapsing Backstage

Joe Perry is reportedly “alert and responsive” after collapsing backstage after performing at Madison Square Garden over the weekend. The news was confirmed by Perry’s reps, who issued the following statement: “Following a guest performance during Billy Joel’s show last night at Madison Square Garden, Joe Perry experienced shortness of breath and was treated backstage by paramedics who gave the guitarist oxygen and used a tracheal tube to clear his airway before taking him to a hospital. This morning Perry remains in the hospital where he is alert and responsive. The Aerosmith guitarist will be unable to appear today at Rock And Roll Fantasy Camp in Florida and apologizes to those attending. Perry is expected to return to the road later this month.” The news comes just days after Perry shared a new single, titled “Quake,” along with its music video. The track appears on his recently released solo album, Sweetzerland Manifesto. The new visual was directed by Joe’s son Roman Perry, and features vocals by Extreme singer Gary Cherone. The legendary guitarist and co-founder of Aerosmith has also announced a tour in support of Sweetzerland Manifesto, with his band mate Brad Whitford and Cherone.
