Perry: 'Good Genes Keep Me Rocking'
Aerosmith rocker Joe Perry thanks his "good genes" and Portuguese heritage for his long career.
The guitarist turns 60 next year (10), but is showing no signs of slowing down - recently revealing the band will schedule another tour after a "breather" in 2010.
Revealing his secrets, Perry says, "You adjust. I don't do backwards somersaults anymore. But my playing is getting better. And I'm lucky to have some good Mediterranean genes."
The guitarist has also been given a boost after undergoing knee surgery in 2008.
Prior to the operation, the rocker revealed he had been playing through agony for three years after a stage fall in Dallas, Texas 23 years ago finally came back to cripple his ageing frame.
