Aerosmith and Hollywood Vampires’ guitarist, Joe Perry has released a video for his solo track Aye Aye Aye. The track, which is recorded live, is taken from his album Sweetzerland Manifesto, which was released at the beginning of this year.
Filmed and recorded at The Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, Perry was joined onstage by some heavyweights from the music industry: Cheap Trick’s Robin Zander and the two brothers from Stone Temple Pilots, Robert and Dean DeLeo.
Perry recently told Rolling Stone: : “Being friends and fans of each other for 40 years – Robin and I had always talked about writing together.
“I was in Los Angeles working on my newest solo record and Robin was in town with Cheap Trick and called me with an idea for a song. He sang the chorus over the phone which was all he had at the time.
“I dug it and said, ‘Hell yeah, come on up.’ This song turned out to be one of two tracks on the album I hadn’t written the music for before. Robin came up to Sweetzerland and six hours later, Aye, Aye, Aye was born.
“The song moved along as fast as a ride on a Japanese bullet train. In fact, we were able to track it live that night.”
The actual album Sweetzerland Manifesto features a host of other guest performances that include: New York Dolls’ David Johansen, Terry Reid, Zak Starkey and Perry’s sons Tony and Roman.
