The Joe Perry Project is an American rock band formed by Aerosmith lead guitarist Joe Perry. Perry started working on forming the band shortly before his departure from Aerosmith in 1979. The Joe Perry Project signed a record deal almost immediately after Perry's exit from the band with Aerosmith's label, Columbia Records, who were disappointed with the chaos in the Aerosmith camp and hoping to maneuver Perry back into Aerosmith. The original band line-up consisted of Perry, singer Ralph Morman,bassist David Hull, and drummer Ronnie Stewart. This line-up recorded The Project's 1980 debut album, Let the Music Do the Talking, which was produced by long-time Aerosmith producer Jack Douglas. The album was fairly well received and sold a respectable 250,000 copies in America within its first six months of release.During the tour in support of the album, Morman's behavior became very erratic due to alcohol-related issues, and he was dismissed from the band in June 1980. He was temporarily replaced by singer Joey Mala, of the New York-based act Revolver, in order for Perry to fulfill concert obligations until a permanent vocalist could be brought in. Morman would go on to become lead singer for Savoy Brown a few weeks after being fired from the Perry organization. A permanent replacement for Morman was found in singer and rhythm guitarist Charlie Farren. Perry, Farren, Stewart, and Hull recorded one album, I've Got the Rock'n'Rolls Again,which proved to be less successful than the group's debut effort. Columbia's reluctance to promote the album combined with Perry's continuing drug and financial problems led to the entire band quitting in 1982.Equipped with a new record label (MCA Records) and three new band members in singer Cowboy Mach Bell, bassist Danny Hargrove and drummer Joe Pet, the band released Once a Rocker, Always a Rocker in 1983. The album met the same fate as its predecessor, selling less than 50,000 copies. Despite the poor sales, The Project went out on a final tour in support of the album, adding then-former Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford to the line-up.A compilation album, The Music Still Does the Talking: The Best of the Joe Perry Project, was released by an Australian Indie Record label in 1999.On October 6, 2009, Joe Perry, on his own record label (Roman Records) released a solo album titled Have Guitar, Will Travel.The first single was called "We've Got a Long Way to Go."Although the record was released as a Perry solo album, the touring band included original bassist David Hull and was billed as The Joe Perry Project. Also participating were guitarist/keyboardist Paul Santo (Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, Ringo Starr), drummer Marty Richards ( James Montgomery, Norah Jones, The J. Geils Band) and German vocalist Hagen Grohe who was discovered by Billie Perry (Joe Perry's wife) on YouTube. The new Joe Perry Project also backed Joe on his latest album, making it a de facto JPP album.On September 20, 2009, the new Joe Perry Project played the first public concert of the Have Guitar, Will Travel Tour at Memorial Hall in Plymouth, Massachusetts.The show was announced just days before the event. Fans who attended were the first to hear some of the new songs from the upcoming album, as well as a handful of classic Aerosmith songs including: "Let the Music Do the Talking" (original JPP version), "Walkin' The Dog," "Dream On," "Combination" and "Walk This Way." The final song of the night was a cover of Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World."During the 2009–2010 tour, the Joe Perry Project opened for Bad Company and Mötley Crüe.
THE JOE PERRY PROJECT 3rd album "Once A Rocker, Always A Rocker" in its Japanese SHM-CD mini-LP remastered reissue, now out of print. It was a limited edition, and the sound quality is superb.After the band's great second album 'I’ve Got The Rock ’N’ Rolls Again', Joe Perry completely reformed the whole project and recruited three new band members: Cowboy Mach Bell (vocals), Joe Pet (Drums) and Danny Hargrove (Bass).With this new line-up and the determination to climb back up to stardom with his band, the musical orientation for "Once A Rocker, Always A Rocker" was slightly more commercial, focused on radio ready songs yet rocking storming anyway.Mach Bell's vocals brought a new dimension to the band, and overall he rocks with a strong, distinctive delivery.The opening title track, 'Once A Rocker, Always A Rocker' is a short (just under 3 minutes) but a kickin' rock and roller, very bluesy based. Next is one of the highlights, 'Black Velvet Pants'. The intro to this song is outstanding with Joe's guitar solo and then a cool rhythm.'Women In Chains' is one of my favorites, not strange as it was co-written by talented AOR-related Tom DeLuca. This is an excellent mid-paced song with interesting arrangements and lyrics about how women are sometimes mistreated or ignored.‘Crossfire’ sounds like a lost Aerosmith song with Bell's vocals similar to Steven Tyler, and there’s some fine sax playing at the end.All members find room to shine on ‘King Of The Kings’ (love the rounded bass sound on this one), and then we find a fine cover of T. Rex's ‘Bang A Gong’.More classic Joe Perry Project from their first era is the straight rock’n’roll of ‘Walk With Me Sally’, which alongside Joe's shuffle riffs there's some great honky-tonk piano playing courtesy of guest Harry King. The LP close with ‘Never Wanna Stop’, a funky rocker with a fun guitar work including a 'slide solo' by Joe.After the "Once a Rocker, Always a Rocker", Perry started conversations with Tyler, ditched the Project and returned to his original compadres, Aerosmith, in 1984.
This final Joe Perry Project album rocks with a melodic, focused songwriting, and this rarely seen SHM-CD release blows out of the water any other version out there in terms of sound quality.
