As reported by TMZ, guitarist Joe Perry of Aerosmith was rushed to the hospital this Saturday night, November 10, right after his guest performance on Billy Joel’s concert in New York’s Madison Square Garden.
The source states that after the performance of “Walk This Way” Joe Perry went backstage and collapsed. The report reads:
“Paramedics rushed to the scene and worked on the 68-year-old for around 40 minutes in his dressing room. We’re told they put a tracheal tube down his throat to clear the air path. There was panic in the dressing room, and one eyewitness says ‘Joe did not look good.’
“Paramedics put the famed Aerosmith guitarist on a stretcher, gave him oxygen and rushed him to a hospital.
“We’re told Billy Joel was still on stage in the final minutes of his concert and was unaware of the emergency. Paramedics and security had to clear a path to get out of MSG because there were so many people around.”
