Joe Perry grateful for Aerosmith's longevity 7/28: Aerosmith's Joey Kramer at Changing Hands Aerosmith will play "Rocks" in its entiretyBoth Rock and Roll Hall of Fame acts boast catalogs of classic hits dating back decades, as well as strong fan bases.What would happen if each band played a handful of songs made famous by the other act?Here are some suggestions:Aerosmith playing ZZ Top songs:"Sharp Dressed Man" - Both Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler and guitarist Joe Perry could take the spotlight on this one.

Tyler is known for his scarves and skintight rock-star outfits, while Perry crafts a new look for each tour.

Last time Perry hit Glendale, he sported an old-school cowboy getup that he said is similar to what he wears to ride horses on his Vermont farm."Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers" - Aerosmith might enjoy playing this one for old time's sake.

The band has left behind the hard-partying ways that it became famous for in the '70s and '80s.

(Tyler and Perry were nicknamed the Toxic Twins for their substance abuse.) These days, the band reportedly does not allow alcohol backstage."Legs" - Perry could bring his wife, model-singer Billie Paulette Montgomery, onstage for this one.

The two met in the mid-'80s, when Montgomery was starring in a video by the Joe Perry Project, which the guitarist started after he temporarily left Aerosmith.

During the "Black Velvet Pants" video, the camera spends lots of time on a pair of black slacks worn by Montgomery."Manic Mechanic" - Tyler is a longtime motorcycle enthusiast.

He is co-founder of Dirico Motorcycles, which manufacturers a line of high-end custom bikes.

Tyler blogs about his passion for riding and his company's designs at Top playing Aerosmith songs:"Toys in the Attic" - ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons is a certified car nut, with scores of vintage automobiles tucked away in various spots (OK, maybe not in his attic).

In 2005, he published a way-cool coffee-table book called "Billy F.

Gibbons: Rock + Roll Gearhead.""Round and Round" - Gibbons and bassist Dusty Hill could play this one using the spinning guitars they debuted in their famed 1984 MTV video for "Legs." The wool-covered guitars in the video were custom-made by Dean Z Guitars, and they still make appearances at the band's concerts."Walk This Way" - ZZ Top could get help for this performance by putting out a casting call for the three women who starred in a string of successful videos on MTV in the '80s, including "Gimme All Your Lovin' " and "Legs." Shots of the three women strutting around in miniskirts and high heels were an integral part of the videos."Back in the Saddle" - When ZZ top staged its Worldwide Texas Tour in 1976, the stage set included a pen with real longhorn cattle and buffalo.

Gibbons, Hill and drummer Frank Beard were smart enough to avoid trying to ride any of the critters during their shows.
