Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry presents 60 minutes of music that is closest to his heart.
"STEPPIN' OUT" — JOHN MAYALL & THE BLUESBREAKERS
Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton (1966)
"I don't think I've ever heard such intense playing and such a great solo with so much attitude on it. And the tone was revolutionary. Everybody else played with that country twang up 'tiI then. The Beatles had some juice when it came to distortion, but Clapton was finally able to break through those early studio engineers' fear of overloading.
"He defined the sound that guitarists spend the rest of their lives trying to get. There's so much expression in his phrasing and the harmonics. That song still gives me goosebumps."
