- Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry is "doing well" after he was forced to leave the stage while performing in Coney Island, Brooklyn.

Perry became ill around 9:30 p.m. Sunday while performing with Johnny Depp and Alice Cooper in his side band, the Hollywood Vampires, at Ford Amphitheater.

 "Joe Perry is doing well and resting and appreciates all your good wishes," said the group's representative, Sujata Murthy.
 

An administrator at Coney Island Hospital confirmed the 65-year-old Perry was undergoing tests. He was reportedly transferred to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan.
