Aerosmith's Joe Perry about Lemmy: "He lived the life"


Aerosmith and Hollywood Vampires guitarist Joe Perry was recently interviewed by WRIF radio, you can read some excerpts below.


About Hollywood Vampires' tribute to late Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister at this year's Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, Joe said: "I think that if there was a band that you could call hardcore, hard rock and that lived the life, it was Motorhead. And you could always still count on Lemmy to be up at the Rainbow, which was kind of the tribute that the Hollywood Vampires… you know, the whole thing started with that, with the guys that would hang out there in the '60s. And he was one of those guys that you could still go up there any night of the week and he would be there hanging out, living that life. And it was unfortunate he passed the way he did, but it was really good to be able to be the band that paid tribute."
