JOE PERRY Explains How AEROSMITH Was Influenced By LED ZEPPELIN
In Rolling Stone magazine's latest cover story, "The Return of Led Zeppelin," eight artists offer their take on the impact of the iconic rock group.
AEROSMITH guitarist Joe Perry offered this statement: "We learned the arena-rock sound from their records. Jimmy Page was so young when they made their first record, but he'd spent so much time in the studio, he had the whole thing mapped out in his head. He was like Eisenhower looking at Normandy Beach."
Jimmy Page was honored with a Living Legend Award at the Classic Rock Roll of Honour awards in London in early November.
AEROSMITH frontman Steven Tyler paid tribute to the guitarist, who also received video messages from LED ZEPPELIN's Robert Plant and guitar legend Les Paul.
