Legendary Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry sits down with Larry King on the Emmy nominated series  “Larry King Now” opens up and talks about his new memoir, his rocky relationship with Steven Tyler, crazy groupie stories and much more.

 

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry was vocal about his turbulent history with bandmate Steven Tyler, “I think that we had a lot of troubles separating our musical differences from our personal lives.” He went on to explain to Larry what their relationship is like today, “We still have our rough spots, but I accept the way he is, just like he accepts the way I am. I have to take as much responsibility for the bumps and the avalanches in the road as he does.” (clip below)

 

Joe also talked about his new best-selling book, “Rocks: My Life In and Out of Aerosmith,” “I wouldn’t have written the book twenty years ago because of some of the things that I put in there, ‘cause I wouldn’t have wanted my kids to read it, but now they’re grown up.”  He also talked to Larry about actor Johnny Depp who wrote the foreword of Perry’s memoir, “He’s an amazing guitar player and I — I can’t say enough about his love for the blues and for the history for the music and, frankly, he’s got one of the best guitar collections I’ve ever seen.” (clip below)

 

Although Joe Perry himself “was never a groupie guy” the rock star shared a wild story about a guitar player that was in his band for the first year “[He] was washing off his “Mr. Important” with a bottle of Jack Daniels, because he was the only one who was married and was fooling around.” Joe wrapped up his interview by answering social media questions from some of his biggest fans, including how his recent recording session with the iconic Beatle, Paul McCartney went.
