Comments
Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry released a statement yesterday announcing that he's recovering in the hospital after having surgery a week ago to fully replace one of his knees. This surgery followed two years of chronic pain, and was brought on when his knee gave out during a recent performance with his sons' band TAB the Band. After spending several days in the ICU "to stabilize his pain," Joe is now in a private room, where he'll remain until he's able to go home. There, he'll continue his recovery until the end of the year. Perry has had to cancel one solo show, scheduled for April 5 in Niagra Falls, New York. According to the Aerosmith website, "If there's one thing Joe Perry doesn't like, it's missing a show."

Comments
David Bowie took to his website recently to downplay involvement with the upcoming Scarlett Johanson debut album of all Tom Waits covers. That's not to say Bowie was trying to save face; in fact he came to the actress' defense, saying, “The songs are great, really good Tom Waits stuff, and Scarlett's performances are mystical and twice cool.
