Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry was rushed to a hospital last night after collapsing following a performance at Madison Square Garden in New York with Billy Joel.
Perry was taken out of the Garden on a stretcher after paramedics worked on him in his dressing room, reportedly inserting a tracheal tube down his throat at one point.
No updates on his condition have been reported.
Perry has contributed to numerous soundtracks and has occasionally appeared as an actor in minor roles.
Perry has a well-documented past with drug and alcohol problems, issues which at one time derailed Aerosmith. But he recovered and resumed a busy career with the band and solo work.
