ONCE A ROCKER, ALWAYS A ROCKER – A CASUAL GUIDE TO THE MUSIC OF AEROSMITH'S JOE PERRY
BY NEIL DANIELS
PUBLISHED BY CREATESPACE
WORLDWIDE RELEASE DATE: MAY 1, 2015
A Casual Guide To The Music Of Aerosmith's Joe Perry
Undoubtedly the most important and successful band to come out of the U.S. of A., Aerosmith remain intact after four decades of down 'n dirty rock 'n' roll. They've been called 'The Bad Boys From Boston' and 'America's Greatest Rock 'N' Roll Band' for a reason. Aerosmith are the best-selling American rock band of all time, having sold over a hundred million albums worldwide. The Boston bad boys have been together for over forty years and like their English heroes, the Rolling Stones, they are still making music and touring well into the 2010s; albeit at a much slower pace than the old days.
However, outside of the band Joe Perry has enjoyed a solo career that has attained cult status. Once A Rocker, Always A Rocker explores the original Joe Perry Project, notably the superlative first two albums: Let The Music Do The Talking and I've Got The Rock 'N' Rolls Again as well as 1983's less well-received Once A Rocker, Always A Rocker. Perry restarted his solo career in the noughties with 2005's self-titled album and 2009's Have Guitar, Will Travel and more recently, the 2014 EP, Joe Perry's Merry Christmas. But it's those first two albums that really made an impression.
From the author of books on Bon Jovi, Journey and ZZ Top, Once A Rocker, Always A Rocker celebrates Perry's musical legacy and offers titbits of information and trivia about his career as well as a biography, discographies, a timeline, reviews and tributes from leading musicians and respected music writers. There are also previously unseen live photographs of the rock guitar icon.
Once A Rocker, Always A Rocker is essential reading for Aerosmith and Joe Perry fans.
