jp_ROCKS

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry appears to present his new memoir on Thursday, October 9 at 6:00 pm at the Coolidge Corner Theatre

Press Release:

In the tradition of the mega-bestseller Life by Keith Richards, Aerosmith’s Joe Perry opens up for the first time about the wild, inside story of his life in the legendary band he cofounded in 1970—which is still going strong today. In Rocks, Joe Perry exposes his unrepentant, unbridled life as the lead guitarist of Aerosmith. He delves deep into his volatile, profound, and enduring relationship with singer Steve Tyler and reveals the real people behind the larger-than-life rock-gods on stage. The nearly five-decade saga of Aerosmith is epic, at once a study in brotherhood and solitude that plays out on the killing fields of rock and roll.

Tickets are $35 each and include one copy of Rocks on sale at the link. Joe Perry will only sign copies of Rocks purchased at Brookline Booksmith.
