Joe Perry Looks Back at 'Permanent Vacation'

�It was really the start of a new paradigm as far as writing and making records,� Perry tells Ultimate Classic Rock. �We went into the studio and just tried to grind it out, and it didn�t work that way anymore. Obviously we needed some new influence, and it wasn�t going to work the old way.
