I was 29 years old, living in my parents’ basement and working at my father’s stereo shop. That’s when the phone rang.... A week later I was suddenly the lead singer of a famous hard rock band, touring America and preparing to cut an album for a major label.
Aerosmith’s Joe Perry needed a new singer for his Joe Perry Project and I got drafted. For me it was like winning the lottery. Much better though, because lotteries only pay cash. For the next two years I would be experiencing things in life that money just can’t buy. Living on the road with the swaggering rock star, playing adventurous, unbridled hard rock at famed venues to big crowds. Singing and signing autographs, finding romance, and partying with my idols. Just like that, I was on top but...since quitting Aerosmith, Joe Perry was bottoming out. Health failing, marriage falling apart, and deeply in debt.
In order to stay one foot ahead of the tallyman, Joe jumped into a van and hit the road, taking me and a few other newbies along on a mad dash across the USA and beyond. Taking any gig he could get.
On the road with The Joe Perry Project in the big '80s. The untold story is unveiled in amazing detail. Captivating, riotously funny, frighteningly frank, exhilarating, and at times deeply moving.
The audiobook includes everything from the original “diary” plus bonus untold stories and a whole new final chapter.
