Halfway through Joe Perry’s new doorstop of a tell-most, Rocks: Four Decades of Not Choking Steven Tyler to Death, you get to the (second of three–this is a Quality Premium Release) picture section. There is a shot of Perry and his immensely pregnant wife. They are nude, but tastefully so, and are staring into the camera like magicians after a trick.
The caption under this picture reads (and I am quoting exactly because it’s the wording that makes this special): “Me and Billie…just sixteen days before she gave natural childbirth to Roman.”
Now that’s just exactly perfect.
