Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry was hospitalised after he collapsed behind the stage while performing in New York on Sunday.

Perry, 65, was playing in Coney Island in Brooklyn with his band the Hollywood Vampires, along with rocker Alice Cooper, when he staggered off-stage and collapsed, media reports said.

Cooper said on Twitter hours later that Perry “is stable right now, with family & is under the best care.”

A Facebook account quoted Cooper as saying from stage “If you notice one of our brothers is not onstage with us, he was very sick before the show,” Billboard magazine reported.
