interview with Joe Perry
interview with Joe aired right before
5:00 on Friday. Stuff that was said:
asked about all the good looking women
at the Aerosmith shows... Joe said he
was a one woman man and that the groupie
stuff was more of Steven's thing. He was
also asked the usual "how do you
rock now that you're sober?"
question... Perry responded that it
wasn't an issue for the band anymore,
because it's been so long since they
stopped using. He then talked about the
Stones and his appearance on Mick's
upcoming solo album. He also talked
about set lists, that they change things
from night to night based on crowd
reaction and stuff.
