Aerosmith: Joe Perry shares Thanksgiving photos while recovering from recent collapse

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry is sharing some photos from Thanksgiving as he continues to recover at home following a recent collapse backstage at a Billy Joel show in New York that saw him hospitalized for almost a week.

“Had a great Thanksgiving weekend with Billie, Annie, Roman, Tony, Austin, Sarah, Amanda and cooked by Aaron,” writes Perry alongside a series of pictures from the fall US holiday.

The rocker collapsed backstage and was treated by paramedics before being rushed to hospital minutes after performing “Walk This Way” with Joel at Madison Square Garden on November 10.

Following his release from hospital, Perry cancelled his planned fall US tour on doctor’s orders.

“While doctors have released Perry from care,” read a press release, “the Aerosmith guitarist will now take the rest of the year off. Perry again would like to apologize to the fans who were planning on coming to the shows and looks forward to seeing them again in 2019.”

The 10-date fall trek in support of his latest solo record, “Sweetzerland Manifesto” – which was scheduled to open in Sioux City, IA on November 30 – was to see Perry joined a lineup that included his Aerosmith bandmate Brad Whitford and Extreme singer Gary Cherone.
