Joe Perry Escapes Serious Injury

After a year of illness, injuries and turmoil, Aerosmith finally seemed to be enjoying some hard earned positive momentum when news broke Thursday (7/15) that Joe Perry had been involved in an accident near Boston.  Police reported that Perry's motorcycle was hit by a car on Rt. 44 in Middleborough, MA during the afternoon.  Perry's bike was apparently struck from behind by a sedan being driven by a grandmother of 6.  He wastransported to the Morton Medical Center in nearby Taunton, where he was reportedly treated for a minor back injury and released.  Ironically, the accident took place on the anniversary of the date Joey Kramer of the band's Ferrari went up in flames at a Boston area gas station.  No wonder they put out an album titled Nine Lives!  One can only hope Tom Hamilton doesn't blow out his elbow throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at Fenway Park Friday (7/16) before the Red Sox meet the Texas Rangers   Boston Herald
