Perry collapsed on stage over the weekend
Perry collapsed during a show with supergroup Hollywood Vampires on Sunday (July 11). He reportedly lost consciousness and collapsed backstage, later being transported to a nearby hospital. Previous reports stated that Perry was “stable” and “under the best care”.
Writing on Twitter following the incident, Tyler said, “I love you @joeperry… Feel the millions of prayers coming your way… We all love you… Sending white light and all that I got your way”.
Now Tyler has told Billboard, “It’s starting to scare me a little bit”.
Describing himself as “really concerned”, Tyler added, “I know they’re putting out nothing, but he’s recovering, he’s really good, he fainted, exhaustion. But I know my brother. He’s just about the only other guy that’s as passionate about his art as I am. He’s always asking me to do three, four [Aerosmith] shows in a row, and I can’t. I’ll blow my voice out. I know how to maintain my career, my health, and Joe’s passionate. I don’t think he knows how to. I think he’s out there and someone’s overbooking him. They’re doing like eight or nine shows in a row, or five in a row. I think they’re all a little burnt. I think they may need to look at that. Not young any more, y’know?”
Asked about Aerosmith, who have reportedly broken up, Tyler said, “I don’t give a shit about the band. I want Joe to live. I’m really concerned and worried right now that I’m not getting any news. I’m a little bummed out, and that scares me. I don’t know whether it’s heat prostration or whether he’s been working himself too hard or getting off on wrong things passionately. I don’t know what it is, but I know that nobody’s talking to me. I can only tell you that Joe’s my brother and I love him so much.”
