60 Minutes with Joe Perry of Aerosmith
Aerosmith's Joe Perry lists 60 minutes of music that is closest to his heart.
"HONKY TONK WOMEN" -- THE ROLLING STONES
Hot Rocks 1964-1971 (1972)
"I was working as a dishwasher when I first heard that come over the radio, and it definitely put my mind in another place. To this day, nobody's captured the essence of that whole r&b, Chuck Berry, hard rock thing so perfectly. Again, it's the guitars playing off the drums, and you feel that tension.
"You can tell they're playing it live because it starts off slow and ends up fast. There's no machinery getting in the way, no click track in there. Another simple but brilliant song that says so much."
