Perry Spurred By Stern

AEROSMITH star Joe Perry failed to summon the courage to release his latest solo material, until radio star Howard Stern inspired him to open himself up to fans.

Twenty-one years after last releasing a solo album, Perry penned a track - TEN YEARS - to celebrate his 10th wedding anniversary.

Positive feedback and the wise words of shock jock Stern spurred him to add a discful of tracks - and release it for the world to hear.

He explains, "Howard Stern said when he starts twinging inside when he's talking about something, he knows he's hitting a taboo subject and he knows he's doing good radio.

"And I thought about that as far as being an artist goes: I guess whenever you show a piece of yourself that you're a little scared to show or a little sensitive about, you're treading on ground that's actually important for the listener because it's real."
