I heard on the radio this morning, on my way home from work, that Steven Tyler is 63 today. Amazing! And yet, about right, since that means he’d have been about 25 when Aerosmith hit big. I vividly remember Dream On as a new hit song, hearing it play on the radio, outside in front of my house in what must have been – yep! – 1973.
All I have seen of American Idol this season has been about the first four auditions of the first episode, but I was extremely impressed with Tyler as a judge, and I know others have been. Between my schedule and my kids, it’s been hard to see any of it, and I fell out of the habit of checking Rickey and viewing performance videos.
In any event, happy birthday Steven Tyler!
