JOE PERRY SHARES HIS NO FRILLS, ALL THRILLS APPROACH TO TOURING
We spoke to the rock legend about how the band keeps things fresh after all these years.
Most bands don’t make it past the 10-year mark—and even if they do, they rarely hold onto all their original members for the duration. But Aerosmith are not most bands. With more than four decades of history under their collective belt, Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Brad Whitford, Tom Hamilton, and Joey Kramer have overcome struggles—like management disputes, rehab stints, and injuries—and grown their live show into a thunderous, big-production event. Nowadays, Aerosmith’s members split their time between personal projects (Tyler’s currently prepping a country album) and playing live, where their ability to captivate an audience is earning them a whole new legion of fans.
