In 1983, Joe Perry had a new manager, Tim Collins, who greatly influenced the future of Aerosmith. We were the best America had Vietnam Veteran shirt. At this time, Joe was so destitute that he could not pay his debts. He did not have both a house and a car. Joe is in danger of being abandoned by the record company and his third single “Once a rocker, Always a rocker” is not sold. Joe’s life and career are deadlocked. Joe divorced his wife Elissa, was shocked, malnourished, had to go to a mental hospital, get into trouble with the law, and debts were piling up. Brad was so unemployed and depressed that he had to borrow money from his parents-in-law to buy a cradle for his newborn. Aerosmith is no less tragic. Just a few years ago, they performed in the largest stadiums in the US and now they don’t even get into the clubs.
