Legendary AEROSMITH guitarist JOE PERRY is pictured here after being presented with the Les Paul Award at 32nd Annual NAMM TEC Awards, Saturday, January 23

PERRY was presented with the prestigious honor by his Hollywood Vampires bandmate Johnny Depp, who said PERRY was “his hero” and “the reason I picked up the guitar in the first place.”

The two were joined by AEROSMITH guitarist Brad Whitford, Robert DeLeo (Hollywood Vampires, Stone Temple Pilots) and Glen Sobel (Alice Cooper) for a three-song set–“Boogie Man,” “Combination,” “Walk This Way”–before PERRY‘s Hollywood Vampires partner Alice Cooper joined in on “Train Kept A Rollin” and “Sweet Emotion.”

The annual Les Paul Award is given on behalf of the Les Paul Foundation and honors individuals that have set the highest standards of excellence in the creative application of recording technology in the spirit of the famed audio pioneer, inventor and musician, Les Paul.  PERRY was honored alongside famed AEROSMITH engineer and producer Jack Douglas, who was inducted into the NAMM TEC Hall of Fame (which was created nearly thirty years ago to honor pioneers of audio technology, as well as the music industry’s most accomplished producers and audio technicians) earlier in the evening.

    I’ve been listening to Joe Perry since 1975. Never disappointed one time. What a class act. Would love to have seen this live.
