My Thoughts: I’m not an Aerosmith fan but this was a good podcast. Joe Perry seems back a laid back guy without an agenda or something to promote. Perry and Rogan got along well and you can tell they like each other. Hopefully Perry comes back and digs deeper into Aerosmith’s early days with some touring stories and talk about his drug addiction.
