Joe Perry a avut probleme la unul din concertele Hollywood Vampires de acum cateva saptamani. Nu detaliez, informatia e peste tot pe net si nici nu vreau sa ma mai gandesc. Am cautat intre timp sa aflu diagnosticul exact, sperand sa nu fie cel vehiculat initial - atac de cord. Si se pare ca e cea mai usoara varianta la care se putea gandi cineva, mai ales dupa ce am vazut imaginile din seara respectiva: a fost vorba de dehidratare si epuizare fizica.
Dupa ce l-am intalnit pe Alice Cooper, mi-am dat seama ca pot oricand sa am incredere intr-o declaratie de-a lui, asa ca n-am nici un dubiu ca e fix ceea ce spune. Mai ales ca, intre timp, Joe a revenit pe scena.
Alice Cooper: "Aerosmith does two shows a week, but we were on our eighth show in nine days and I'm used to working like that. I'm used to working an hour and 40 minutes or two hours, five nights a week. I was in shape and so was Johnny and everybody else. I think Joe was not ready for that kind of pace. We were doing 25 to 30 songs with no break. You're in fourth gear and there's no 24-hour resting period. I think it just caught up with him. He finally got up there onstage, dehydrated. And I think he was exhausted. He told me the night before he hadn't eaten in two days. I said, 'Man, you've got to know when to sleep. You've got to know when to eat on a tour.' I think it just finally got to him. It was not a heart attack; it was pure exhaustion. They checked his heart and said his heart was actually very strong."
Fuck, yeah! Sa ne vedem cu bine in 2017!
