The readers can download Rocks: My Life in and out of Aerosmith Audiobook for free via Audible Free Trial.


In the tradition of the mega-bestseller Life by Keith Richards, Aerosmith's Joe Perry opens up for the first time about the wild, inside story of his life in the legendary band he cofounded in 1970-which is still going strong today.In Rocks, Joe Perry exposes his unrepentant, unbridled life as the lead guitarist of Aerosmith. He delves deep into his volatile, profound, and enduring relationship with singer Steve Tyler and reveals the real people behind the larger-than-life rock-gods on stage. The nearly five-decade saga of Aerosmith is epic, at once a study in brotherhood and solitude that plays out on the killing fields of rock and roll. With record-making hits and colossal album sales, Aerosmith has earned their place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But theirs is ultimately a story of endurance, and it starts almost half a century ago with young Perry, the rebel whose loving parents wanted him to assimilate, but who quits school because he doesn't want to cut his hair. He meets Tyler in a restaurant in New Hampshire, sways him from pop music to rock-and-roll, and it doesn't take long for the "Toxic Twins" to skyrocket into a world of fame and utter excess. From the mega-successful song and music video with Run DMC, "Walk This Way," to the realization that he can't pay his room service bill, Perry takes a personal look into the human stories behind Aerosmith, the people who enabled them, the ones who controlled them, and the ones who changed them. In his own words, Rocks is the whole story: "the loner's story, the band's story, the recovery story, the cult story, the love story, the success story, the failure story, the rebirth story, the re-destruction story, the post-destructive rebirth story."



  • This book is a real gem for long-time fans of Aerosmith, as Joe Perry takes us on a wild ride through his life with the band. It's an honest and captivating recounting that I thoroughly enjoyed. And let me tell you, having the author himself narrate the audiobook just added to the experience. Joe Perry did an amazing job bringing his story to life.
  • This audiobook offers a captivating glimpse into the life of a truly inspiring guitar player. The fact that the narrator was able to bring the book to life speaks volumes about the man himself. It's definitely worth both reading the book and listening to the narration.
  • This book is made even more awesome by Joe narrating it himself, just like 18 in Life with Sebastian Bach. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to both books. I highly recommend them.
  • I gotta say, I was seriously let down when I reached the final page of this book. And it's not because the book sucked, it's because I just didn't want it to end. This book took me on a nostalgic journey through the career of one of the most badass and talented guitar players in rock 'n roll history (at least in my humble opinion). I mean, it's hard to argue with that. Maybe being a Southern boy made it even more enjoyable for me, but Joe Perry's presentation and narration really brought this book to life, especially with his authentic "Bastan" accent. Joe, thanks for giving me such an awesome listening experience. I wouldn't be surprised if I give this book another spin in the future.
  • As a die-hard Aerosmith fan, hearing certain aspects of the story in "Rocks: My Life in and out of Aerosmith" was heartbreaking. Nevertheless, I was completely enthralled and thoroughly enjoyed every single moment of this book. What made it even more special was listening to Joe Perry narrate the tale himself. Towards the end, Perry expressed his joy in knowing that Aerosmith had saved lives, and I can proudly say that I am one of those individuals they rescued. I am truly grateful for the insight into their struggles and journey to become the iconic band they are today. Thank you, Joe!
  • Joe shares the complete journey of his life in 'Rocks: My Life in and out of Aerosmith'! He passionately delves into his deep affection for Rock music and the undying determination that fueled his success. A genuine icon of the Rock scene, Joe's story is nothing short of legendary.
  • I've read a bunch of rock and roll autobiographies, and it blows my mind how two people in the same band for over 40 years can have such contrasting perspectives and create some of the most incredible music of our time. I never really thought much about Joe, apart from his killer guitar skills, but after digging into this book, I have gained a newfound admiration for the guy. His life story is absolutely mind-blowing, and I genuinely hope he continues to rock out for many more years to come. Big props to you, Joe!
  • As someone who's a huge fan of old-school Aerosmith (before the "Love in an Elevator" era), I appreciated the behind-the-scenes anecdotes shared in "Rocks: My Life in and out of Aerosmith." However, I did perceive Joe to have a somewhat complaining tone at times.
