AEROSMITH Guitarist Picking Up Trash In Florida

HeraldTribune.com reports that AEROSMITH lead guitarist Joe Perry — accompanied by his wife, Billie Perry, and about 85 other divers — spent Saturday scooping up trash left in the waters off Lido and Longboat keys in Florida.

The Perrys, who have a second home on Longboat Key, found themselves with extra time this weekend after an AEROSMITH concert in Tampa was canceled because lead singer Steven Tyler has an injured leg.

The pair read an article about the cleanup in a local magazine and decided to put their 25 years of diving experience to work for a noble cause.

"We yanked out a bunch of trash — everything from a big chunk of fiberglass to 20 feet of rope on an anchor," Joe Perry said. "This is the kind of thing that makes people realize you can't just throw stuff off the side of the boat."
