Aerosmith's Joe Perry Collapses, Rushes to Hospital After Performing with Billy Joel

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry is recovering after he collapsed backstage following a performance with Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden.

Perry got up on stage to perform the Aerosmith classic "Walk This Way" with Joel and his band.

Perry, 68, suffered from shortness of breath, according to a statement released by his spokesperson.

Perry's publicists said in a statement Sunday that the musician is alert and responsive in the hospital and is expected to return to the road later this month. Paramedics worked on the 68-year-old rocker for more than a half hour before wheeling him out of the venue on a stretcher and rushing to a NY hospital, where he remained as of yesterday.

As of this morning, there's no official word on Perry's condition, but radio personality Eddie Trunk tweeted that he heard the guitarist is "doing well today thankfully".
