Aerosmith's Joe Perry Collapses, Rushes to Hospital After Performing with Billy Joel

The guitar and rock music legend was apparently wheeled out of Madison Square Garden on a stretcher last night just minutes after performing with Billy Joel at the famed arena.

Perry was playing hit song "Walk This Way", penned by him and Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and later covered by hip-hop group Run-DMC, shortly before he collapsed in his dressing room, TMZ reported.

Paramedics arrived to his dressing room and worked on the 68-year-old who was experiencing shortness of breath. EMTs on site revived Perry and immediately transported him to the hospital in that incident.

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has been hospitalized after he reportedly collapsed backstage at Madison Square Garden in NY after a performance with Billy Joel. The Aerosmith guitarist will be unable to appear today at Rock "n" Roll Fantasy Camp in Florida and apologizes to those attending. Aerosmith also has planned a residency in Las Vegas in 2019.

Perry's publicists said in a statement Sunday that the musician was alert and responsive in hospital and was expected to return to the road later this month.

In an update, TMZ is reporting that sources say Perry is "still in the hospital but he's awake, doing well and could be released as early as Sunday afternoon". So here's to hoping that Perry and his health will have what it takes to make those upcoming gigs.
