Joe Perry

Joe Perry bio picture from his Facebook pageAs co-founding member, principal co-songwriter, electrifying lead guitarist and co-producer of Aerosmith, America’s Greatest Rock & Roll Band, Joe Perry has achieved permanent iconic stature in the pantheon of rock. He has driven his band, over the course of three decades, to sales of more than 150 million albums, four Grammy Awards, 12 MTV Video Music Awards, two People’s Choice Awards, eight American Music Awards, an Academy Award and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Joe’s fourth solo album, 2005’s Joe Perry, not only received universal praise from journalists across the country, but it also earned him his first solo Grammy nomination for Best Instrumental Song (“Mercy”). “Perry applies his craft with an ear for atmosphere and a respect for nuance,” proclaimed USA Today at the time. “This is his most virile and free work of his non-Aerosmith career,” said the New York Daily News. One Boston-based journalist perhaps summed it up best. “The power and the craftsmanship of his playing are transfixing.”

Still as scorching hot on guitar as he is preternaturally cool in his persona, Perry attracted an eclectic blend of musicians with whom he recorded. Drummer Ben Tileston, a Boston University percussion graduate, who plays drums with two of Perry’s sons in TAB The Band, joined an esteemed roster of some of the best that the music world has to offer; Bassist David Hull, who played with The Buddy Miles Band at 19 and was in the Joe Perry Project in the 80s, Paul Santo, whose played Hammond Organ/Pipe Organ with the likes of Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton and Ozzy Osbourne, drummers Scott Meeder and Marty Richards and Willie “Loco” Alexander, Boston’s “Godfather of Punk,” who was part of the Bostown sound of the band “the Bagatelle.”

Perry is planning a “short, fast, hard tour” with the Joe Perry Project after Have Guitar, Will Travel is released. “That’s what I’m really looking forward to – getting back out there with some old friends and some other musicians and doing it like it used to be done.” (Source)
