NEW YORK (AP) — A representative says Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry is resting and "doing well" after he left a New York City stage and was taken to a hospital.

Sujata Murthy also said Monday that Perry appreciates the public's good wishes.

Perry became ill around 9:30 p.m. Sunday while performing with Johnny Depp and Alice Cooper in his side band, the Hollywood Vampires , at the Ford Amphitheater in Brooklyn's Coney Island.

An administrator at Coney Island Hospital confirmed the 65-year-old Perry was undergoing tests.

Cooper tweeted, saying "our brother" Perry was stable and with family.

A video posted by a fan on social media shows Perry sitting onstage and then walking off in the middle of a song.

The band continued playing after Perry left.
