Steven Tyler, legendary Aerosmith frontman recently gave a feature to Haute Living about his sobriety and being honored at Musicares next year. In addition, Tyler talked about the orgins of his charity ‘Janie’s Fund’, a foundation that supports abused girls. Steven Tyler calls out ‘alcoholic’ Aerosmith icon for meltdown.
In speaking with the outlet, Tyler said: “I got to thinking, ‘Wouldn’t it be something if I could have a Janie’s Fund?’ So, instead of ‘Janie’s Got a Gun,’ Janie’s Got a Fund and have a Janie’s House. “It was an early dream, and sure enough, 20 years later I met with some folks from Youth Villages that adopted me. My manager at the time introduced me to them. It was another dream come true.”
In other news regarding Aerosmith and Steven Tyler, fans recently took to social media to discuss their thoughts on one of Aerosmith’s most classic albums – Pump. Steven Tyler reveals why John Lennon ‘screamed’ before death.
The fan continued: “Quite honestly, every track on this album is very good to great. At the point in time when this album came out (1989), I couldn’t have been happier about this legendary band’s comeback. Unfortunately, things have deteriorated since–with the “pop moments” becoming too frequent and the rock tracks trying way to hard to sound “modern” and in unconvincing fashion for the most part. No matter what your feelings are on the last decade of Aerosmith (I know not all will agree with me), I strongly recommend this album as one of Aerosmith’s strongest. Great listen from beginning to end. Just enough pop to keep radio fans happy with a lot of rock to keep the old diehards happy. Fans of all eras should enjoy this one.” Steven Tyler threat to ‘ruin’ Aerosmith revealed.
