“Bitch, the fuck did you do to your hair?” – Joe Perry, who even while dealing with the sicks, can’t help but wonder why Johnny Depp’s hair now looks like a taxidermy platypus.
Last month, Meat Loaf ended up in a hospital bed after he collapsed while yodeling during a show in Edmonton. And last night, Joe Perry of Aerosmith collapsed after leaving the stage during a Hollywood Vampires show in Coney Island. What is happening to our rock legends? They’re all collapsing! QUICK! Everyone form a prayer circle and line mattresses around Vixen. Hey, they’re rock legends to me, okay?
Page Six says that during the show at the Ford Amphitheater, 65-year-old Joe wasn’t feeling well at all and at one point, he went to the back of the stage where he sat on the drum kit. Joe tried to keep playing, but realized that something wasn’t right and he went backstage where he reportedly passed out.
Because every single person on earth has to watch a show through their iPhone screen, someone got video of a sick Joe Perry leaving the stage:
One audience member said that they could see EMTs carrying Joe away while his band members (Johnny, Alice Cooper and Matt Sorum) kept on playing.
“It was super quick. All of a sudden he just went down and then you can see EMTs everyone carrying him stage left. They closed the bathrooms, everyone was frantic. [But the] show didn’t skip a beat.”
Alice Cooper told the audience that Joe wasn’t feeling well and had to check out of the show early.
Joe was taken to a nearby hospital, and there were rumors on Twitter that he was in a bad way. But Alice later tweeted that Joe is recovering:
Thanks to all of the fans reaching out and asking about Joe. He is stable right now, with family and is under the best care.
As for what screwed with Joe… No, Joe didn’t pass out from inhaling a dirt cloud of peen cheese and butt jelly fumes wafting off of Johnny, and he also says that he’s been sober for years. One source tells Page Six that Joe went into cardiac arrest and had to be revived by EMTs. Whatever the case may be, I hope that Joe fully recovers soon. The world needs much more of his skills and his legendary silver lightning rod hair streak of beauty.
Here’s a few pictures of Joe at last night’s show, as well as pictures of The Scarf Don going into his hotel in NYC last night.
