Watch Joe Perry’s New Lyric Video for ‘Quake’
Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has released a lyric video for his solo track “Quake,” featuring Extreme frontman Gary Cherone.

Perry marked the album’s original release by playing it in full with an all-star band. He wound up smashing his guitar after performing “Train Kept A-Rollin’,” and later explained, “It’s one of the best basic fucking guitar riffs in rock ’n’ roll. We hit every fucking version of the E chord that you could imagine. Everything was screaming; the amps were going. I didn’t know what else to do. All of a sudden my guitar was in pieces. ... It was a really a nice guitar, and the guy who made it for me was in the front row. That’s why I’m feeling bad about it. It was not anything I planned. It was just that the energy was overwhelming.”
Aerosmith recently revealed a Las Vegas residency starting in April 2019 to mark their 50th anniversary, with Perry predicting the events would be “something different” from their usual shows.
