Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has posted the following on Instagram about his grandson, and shared a beautiful photo of himself touching his stunning daughter’s stomach when she was pregnant:
“HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE LITTLEST PUP…MY HOPE FOR YOU…THAT ALL YOUR DAYS STAY THIS FREE AND EASY!!! YOU ARE OVER THE MOON TO ME…STAY WILD CHILD! LOVE, PAPA STEVEN.”
Tyler’s Aerosmith bandmate Joe Perry recently discussed Hollywood Vampires with Coachella Valley Weekly.
CVW: Congratulations on the release of your single, “Who’s Laughing Now.” What a great groove and drive to the song. My first thought is for those who may not be familiar with The Hollywood Vampires sound, if they hear that song it’s a great introduction to what you’re about.
Perry: “We’re just starting to get some feedback on that. That song, just thinking about those couple of riffs that came together on the record, I can’t wait to play them live. Like most of the songs that I’ve tried to write, from the start, I think about how it would be to play them live. Again, with this band and having done a couple of tours, it kind of shifted my aim a little different being with this band. It’s a little bit darker and a little bit heavier, you could say, and a lot more wide open than some of the things I’ve done with Aerosmith.”
CVW: The Hollywood Vampires is a salute and throwback to the camaraderie of musicians of the 70’s. How special a group is it?
Perry: “I get the feeling, if we had all met each other back in 1968, this would be the band that would be playing in a garage getting complaints around the neighborhood. At this end of things, it’s that kind of a vibe, with all the miles and years we put in all doing what we do live and that includes Johnny ‘cause what he does, even though he’s in front of a camera he’s still performing and he’s doing it live and he plays guitar a lot. He sits in every chance he gets with all of his friends. We’re doing it because it’s fun. We play for each other as much as we play for the fans.”
