Sunday night’s Hollywood Vampires gig at the Ford Amphitheater on the Cony Island Boardwalk in Brooklyn, New York featured a scary moment when guitarist/Aerosmith legend Joe Perry collapsed onstage.
He was immediately rushed to a hospital where he remained for the rest of the night – while the band, featuring singer Alice Cooper and guitarist Johnny Depp, among other musicians, finished the gig.
After the show, updates were provided via social media and thankfully, Perry appears to be on the mend after what’s being called cardiac arrest:

As you might expect, many of Perry’s high-profile music peers also shared their well-wishes on Twitter, as word spread of what happened:

Best wishes to Perry on a speedy recovery!

    Hey Joe! Get better. A man that can write a book like yours, and play the guitar like you do, is a national American treasure. Stay hydrated!!! Lots of Gatorade. We love you!
