Sunday evening provided a scare to members of the rock collective Hollywood Vampires and its fans at the Ford Amphitheater at Brooklyn’s Coney Island. Shortly into the band’s set, Joe Perry, long time Aerosmith guitarist, began to feel dizzy and sat down on the drum riser. Moving off to side stage he collapsed and was rushed by ambulance to a local hospital.
Continuing with the show, the band was unaware of his condition and wished their friend and colleague well in unison with fans.
Keeping up with his progress through social media, he is currently “stable and resting” at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital.
Thanks to all of the fans reaching out and asking about Joe. He is stable right now, with family and is under the best care.
