Aerosmith's Perry tweets 'doing well' after hospitalization

Joe Perry is feeling the love from fans after he was hospitalized with breathing problems that began after a guest performance with Billy Joel in New York.

The Aerosmith guitarist on Tuesday tweeted: "Doing well, thanks for the love and support."

Perry's publicists said in a statement Sunday the 68-year-old felt short of breath after the performance at Madison Square Garden. Paramedics backstage gave Perry oxygen and used a tracheal tube to clear his airway before taking him to the hospital.

The statement said Perry is expected to return to the road this month.

Perry had joined the 69-year-old Joel on stage for a rendition of Aerosmith's "Walk This Way."
