Joe Perry: Rocks (book review)

I was a bit skeptical when i first bought this boom because it is co written with David Ritz, and last time i picked up a book co written with him, it was horrible. But this one was a different story.

What an awesome story this was. Waaaay better than Tyler’s book. Joe Perry really spills all the beans on this one. How Tyler was running behind the band’s back to audition for Led Zeppelin and American Idol. But this book is not just about the dirty little secrets, it is more than that. Is about the rise and fall of a great guitar player and man. Full with stories about his growing up in the lake and bonding with nature.

Joe Perry really makes you feel like youre sitting with him having a conversation in his back porch. His attention for detail is incredible and thats why when you read this book you can picture everything he is sharing with you.

As bonus if you are a guitar player (like myself) you will really appreciate how he describes his recording process of albums and all the effects and guitars that went into making them. And at the very end of the boom theres a whole section with a lot of pictures about guitars and gear he used and uses.

Do not pass the oportunity to read this awesome autobiography filled with over 100 pictures.
