Aerosmith’s Joe Perry, the rock band’s lead guitarist, was injured in a motorcycle accident when his Ducati was struck from the rear by a motor vehicle at 2 p.m. on Thursday, authorities said.
According to the Patriot Ledger, the motorcycle accident happened when the guitarist was struck while driving his Ducati Monster near his home, in Duxbury, Massachusetts. He was rear ended by 62-year-old, Linda O’Brien of Middleboro, as she was traveling in her Chevy Malibu on Route 44.

Perry Not At Fault In Motorcycle Accident
According to Middleboro police, Perry was traveling eastbound on his Ducati motorcycle when he stopped briefly for a red light at the intersection of routes 44 and 105. When the light turned green, Perry accelerated, that’s when his motorcycle was rear-ended by the 2001 Chevy Malibu.
Perry was not at fault in the motorcycle accident, and the other driver, Ms. O’Brien, was issued a citation for following too close.

Perry was rushed by ambulance to Morton Hospital and Medical Center in Taunton, authorities said. A hospital spokeswoman released a statement saying that at about 4:30 p.m. Perry had been treated and released with minor injuries.
Motorcycle Accident Should Not Affect Tour
Perry, 59, is among the South Shore’s most famous residents as lead guitarist for Aerosmith. According to The Rolling Stone, Perry’s blues based style of playing has made him among the most influential guitarists to come out of the 1970s arena rock genre.
In 2003, Perry was ranked No. 48 on Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” list. The guitarist has had chronic and severe knee pain since falling off the stage in Dallas in the late 1980s. He had a total knee replacement in late 2008.
Perry’s motorcycle accident comes at a time when Aerosmith are set to embark on their “Cocked, Locked, Ready to Rock” tour beginning next week and includes an August 14th homecoming show at Fenway Park for the Boston-based rock band.
The band’s members have been beset with multiple accidents, injuries, and mishaps in the past 12 months. It does not appear that Perry’s motorcycle accident will affect the upcoming tour.
