Aerosmith Guitarist Joe Perry collapses onstage at Coney Island show

Joe Perry, the legendary guitarist of the band Aerosmith, collapsed during a concert with his side project in Coney Island on Sunday night, police sources said.

The veteran rocker was playing alongside actor Johnny Depp and frontman Alice Cooper with his supergroup Hollywood Vampires when he went into cardiac arrest.

Perry was taken to Coney Island Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition.

Videos posted to social media showed him shredding on his guitar at the Ford Amphitheater at the Coney Island Boardwalk before he suddenly walked over behind a speaker and stumbled backstage.

Sources said he soon lost consciousness and police on the scene revived him.

“He had to sit on drum kit and then went behind a small wall and passed out,” a concertgoer wrote on Instagram, adding that “FDNY and NYPD carried him off quickly.”
