Aerosmith's Perry doing well after getting sick at NY show

Joe Perry collapsed and reportedly went into cardiac arrest Sunday night in NY while playing with his side project, The Hollywood Vampires.

Perry, the longtime Aerosmith guitarist, was performing as part of the Hollywood Vampires, who performed Saturday night outside Seneca Niagara Casino.

Sources tell US news show Entertainment Tonight Perry is still under doctors' care, and as a result, Cooper and Depp have chose to cancel a scheduled appearance on America's Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Monday.

While police sources initially said he was in critical condition, Perry has now been transported to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital on the Upper East Side in stable health. He was taken to hospital to be checked out. "Thanks to everyone asking about our brother [Joe Perry]", Cooper wrote Sunday.

If the rumours turn out to be true, the phone will be a worthy successor of Samsung Galaxy J2 released past year in September. Naturally, Consumer Reports figured it could have been a defective device and made a decision to perform the same test again.

Fan video posted on social media shows Perry sitting onstage while playing guitar, then slowly walking off. Witnesses said medics immediately went to his aid offstage. Sunday night's show at The Amphitheater at Coney Island included Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver drummer Matt Sorum and Stone Temple Pilots guitarist Robert DeLeo. "His brother Vampires and fans wish him a speedy recovery", it read. "Vampires! Confirmed - We WILL see you in OH tomorrow night & for the rest of our dates!" We wish him a speedy recovery and hope that he comes back to the stage to astonish us with his awesome guitar skills.

Hollywood Vampires formed previous year to play covers of songs by deceased rockers.

Perry and the band, which also features Matt Sorum of Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver and Robert DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots, have been on tour in the US since July 1,
playing seven dates over the past nine days.
