Aerosmith’s Joe Perry records new project with Paul McCartney

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has revealed that he has recorded a new project with Paul McCartney.

“I did a [recording] session with Paul McCartney a month and a half ago for a private thing,” Perry tells the Chicago Sun-Times. “I met him once or twice [over the years] to say hello. To spend 6 or 8 hours in studio with him recording! He makes you feel like [you’re recording with just another guy]. He just happens to be a mother——g huge talent! Everyone’s in the room at once; you play until you get a good take.”

Asked what it was like to jam with the former Beatle, Perry says “It’s the great ego leveler. I was in the studio with Alice Cooper and Johnny Depp, playing guitar, and the three of us are looking at each other like, hey, we’re sitting here with Paul McCartney! And we’re all looking at each other like open-mouthed kids. Paul was really nice. He’s all about business [when he’s recording]. At 72 he can still hit all those notes.”

Perry was shy about further details for the project, including timing of a possible release.

“It’s a project that were keeping under wraps for now,” adds the guitarist. “There will be [an announcement when the time is right].”

Perry and Aerosmith are currently on the road across North America on the Let Rock Rule tour, which sees Slash opening the shows.

On October 7, Perry will publish his autobiography, “Rocks: My Life In And Out Of Aerosmith."
