According to Hennemusic, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry says he will publish his autobiography next year. Rocks: My Life In And Out Of Aerosmith sees Perry team up with author David Ritz, who has written books with B.B. King, Jerry Wexler and Bettye LaVette.
Perry posted a message: “Another Christmas gift to all. I finished ALL the edits on my autobiography last night. Due out on Simon & Schuster Oct 5th 2014.”
“I expect there will be a fair amount about me and Steven [Tyler], considering I’ve spent a good part of my life with him and three other guys," Perry told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution about the memoir while he was still in the early stages of the project.
Perry’s memoir follows similar works by bandmates Tyler (2011’s Does The Noise In My Head Bother You?) and drummer Joey Kramer’s 2009 book, Hit Hard: A Story Of Hitting Rock Bottom At The Top. Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton is also working on his autobiography. Brad Whitford is seemingly staying silent, for now.
