More backstage revelations from Nitebob
Taken from Revolver Worldwide May/June
DURING ONE OF THE EIGHTIES AEROSMTTH tours, Steven
Tyler decided that there was nothing he hated more than his hair being
wet. One day he came in and said, 'I figured it out, man. If it takes
me 15 minutes to dry my hair with a 1,500 watt blow dryer, I can do it
in five if I use three dryers at once!' So he made this thing that
became known as 'The Blowtorch': He attached three Conair blow dryers
together; two of the handles faced down and one faced up, and the
three power cables were wrapped together. During long songs, like 'Red
House; Tyler would run into this little onstage dressing room and
yell, 'Dry my hair!' Jay, the guy responsible for doing it, would say,
'Gee, Steven, I think I'm burning your scalp; Steven always answered
the same thing: 'Just dry my hair!' One day, they plugged the
Blowtorch into the same line that all the amps on stage-right were
plugged into. As soon as they fired that fucking thing up, all the
power blew out'.

Backstage revelations through the eyes of
Super-roadie Nitebob, taken from Revolver Worldwide May/June 2001
"TOURING IS COOL AT FIRST, BUT - LIKE anything
else - after 20 weeks, it becomes a job. Life on the road is exactly
like the Bill Murray movie Groundhog Day. You repeat the same day over
and over again with slight variations. It's just another arena,
another gig, and the band's freaking out about something. After a
while you want to do something just to alleviate the monotony.
"Bands try to maintain a certain level of comfort during the
drudgery. As a result, they can become really particular about little
things. Aerosmith in particular had a thing about food that
undoubtedly stemmed from being holed up in dressing room after
dressing room after dressing room: If they didn't get fresh turkey on
the bone, they would flip out, because it was a sure sign that the
promoter had overlooked more important things as well. And of course,
if the food was shit for the band, it was even worse for the road
crew. We'd always sneak into the dressing room and eat some of their
food and then try to rearrange the platter so it looked like nobody
had touched it. Sometimes a mandate would come down from the tour
manager: 'We know you're messing with the band's food, and don't do it
anymore: Or, the guys in the band would bust us. They'd say, 'Have you
been in here touching our food?' and we'd say, 'Yeah we put our dicks
all over it: They'd go, 'Oh, we don't want to eat it now!' Eventually,
we'd tell them, 'No, we're only kidding, it isn't true:
"But of course, sometimes it was true. We had put our dicks all
Classic Rock magazine
Classic Rock, May 2001 Edition (AC/DC on front
cover), has a 2 page (64/65) review and pictures from Aerosmith's Club
gig at Babylon Club, Munich 24 March 2001.
The pictures that came with it are exclusive and can
be found in the magazine section at http://welcome.to/the.aerozone
Below is the review as told by Chris Ingham for
Classic Rock, May Issue.
Babylon Club, Munich 24 March, 2001
Set List: `Mama Kin'/'Same Old Song And Dance'/ `One Way Street: / Big
Ten Inch Record'/ `Chip Away The Stone'/ 'I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing'/
`Sweet Emotion'/ `Jaded'/'Train Kept A Rollin"/ `Come Together'/
`Walk This Way'/ `Toys In The Attic'
HOW LUCKY DO YOU WANT to consider yourself? Is full
health enough? A passable bank account, surely? Security and
friendship guaranteed? Or would you swap any or all of the above to
see a club gig by the best rock'n'roll band in the world? Scarcely
believable though it seems, Aerosmith decided to launch their European
press tour for "Just Push Play' in the industrial looking
confines of a Munich sweat house. You'd have to go back some 11 years
to the then Charing Cross Marquee club for the last time that
Aerosmith played a gig this intimate.
But happen it did. Kicking off with a swaggering same 'Mama Kin' it
was clear that this Aerosmith was not interested in recreating the MTV
sugar of 'Pink' or `Livin' On The Edge' for a club gig. The Peter Pan
like figure of Steven Tyler locked on course for another age revising
moment as he pouted and preened like a prize winning peacock through
the chorus. By his side, and every inch Tyler's performing equal,
stands "Joe mother fucking Perry" who, like his vocal
companion, looks like he's been preserved in formaldehyde since he
turned 40 over a decade ago. Those Perry hands curl out riff after
classic riff and you can see from the smile on his face just how much
he still loves the effect those timeless sounds have on the crowd in
front of him.
Truth be told, this secret show was wasted on the Germans, who've only
been acquainted with Aerosmith via the MTV comeback years. `Rocks' era
Aerosmith had been a largely unknown quantity in Europe, the band
having only managed one visit during their worst drugged out years in
the late 70s. While Aero Force One onstage may enjoy ripping out
classic jams like `Chip Away The Stone' and `Big Ten Inch Record', the
crowd are bewildered by the Boston faves set choice. They're here to
see a big music productions like `Crazy' or 'Cryin". While 'I
Don't Wanna Miss A Thing' proves the biggest hit of the night, but the
sugar sweet side of Aerosmith is not what these boys are here to do.
This gig is about remembering how to walk a certain way.
Guitarist Brad Whitford is his usual calm and assured self, content to
play supporting role to the cool as you like Perry out front. Like
Malcolm and Angus Young, without the solid rock of Whitford behind the
groove, that sparkling Joe Perry cool which is the cornerstone to the
Aero hit machine would dissolve the moment it hit the live stage.
Original Woodstock burn out victim Todd Hamilion too has kept his 70s
swing and the lead bass intro into 'Sweet Emotion' remains a
definitive classic rock moment before Perry's mouth box guitar effect
Organized at the band's insistence at some 48 hours notice, this gig
is about shaking off the rust. As Tyler and co see it they can hardly
go around the world talking about rock'n'roll 24-7 when its been two
long years since they last did any of it for real. And if they're
going to go out there and do a low key club gig like this then
Aerosmith will be damned if they're going to pull out all those MTV
ballads for this crowd. If it means that drummer Joey Kramer is facing
an agonizing set pounding away on the drums to supply that famous Aero
swing then so be it. Thumping through hard edged versions of 'Come
Together', 'Train Kept A Rollin" and about as raucous a version
of `Walk This Way' as you are ever likely to hear.
By the encore, Kramer's left wrist is taped up and Tyler even turns
around to ask the drummer if he can manage to blast through a ragged,
screaming version of `Toys in the Attic: He does and the game's up.
Aero Force One is back in action for another two years at the very

A message from an AF1 member
This was sent to me today.
Hi Jason, When I got home from work last
night, I had a phone call from Joyce Logan, who works for Fansrule. I
called her back and she took my order right then. She told me, that all
phone calls, faxes, and emails would be returned. That no shows were
sold out, and all fan club members would get tickets. She admitted that
Fansrule was totally unprepared for the response from the fans. It takes
time to return 50,000 messages, but people on the boards keep getting
phone calls! Aerosmith loves their fans. I trust Aerosmith.
Another AF1 Update
Thanks to all of the Aero Force One fans
who have been so supportive and helpful in this process. It has
a challenge, to say the least. As many of you know, we continue to
contact you through email, phone, fax, and in person in an effort to
help resolve the issues surrounding the past ticketing challenges.
Thanks again to so many of you for your patience.
The FansRULE team has been blown away by the sincerity, understanding
and support of those Aero Force One fans we have contacted. We
appreciate and have heard your input: communicate, we want our
tickets, communicate. This is our mission.
We are continuing to reach out to connect you to your tickets. We
will reopen the ticket process for available dates later this week.
Day, time and phone number for ticketing will be announced this
afternoon, Wednesday April 25, 2001. We will email and post the
details for you as soon as that is available. Aero Force One has
determined that it is not in the best interest of the fan club to
continue to offer ONLINE ticketing at this time.
Based on feedback from the fan base, Aero Force One WILL attempt to
make 2 tickets available to you to MORE than one show. Details of
this will be made available to you in our next communication. Be
aware that doing this may limit the opportunity for everyone to get
tickets to the show of their choice.
We will do everything possible to provide each fan club member with
tickets. However the fan club has grown to a point where we are
concerned that we will not be able to get each one of you tickets to
the venue of your choice. The fact that we could not provide you
advance ticketing was beyond our control, but we are doing everything
possible to make a pair of tickets available to each registered fan
To keep you informed of all ticketing information for the Just Push
Play Tour you should be aware that SFX, Ticketmaster and MSN are
currently running a custom online advance ticketing promotion for tour
dates, which are listed with ticket purchase information at both the
sfx.com and ticketmaster.com sites. For those of you that would like
to maximize the opportunity to get tickets to the show of your choice-
this could be an excellent shot at acquiring additional tickets.
We recognize that this could add an element of confusion as to which
source represents the best opportunity for you to get Aerosmith tickets.
But please recognize that as the band's popularity continues to soar
the demand for ticketing exceeds existing capacity, which puts all
providers of ticketing, inclusive of Aero Force One, in the position
of managing a very challenging process.
As we reach out to each of you to remedy the recent problems, I ask
that you recognize our commitment to make things right and that your
patience will make it easier for us to do just that.
Message To AF1 Members From Fanasylum.com
To our friends in Aero Force One:
Management of Aero Force One has been transferred from
Fan Asylum to its new home at FansRule. We have been receiving many
emails and phone calls regarding the status of the fan club. Because we
are no longer running AF1, we have been forwarding your emails to
FansRule to answer.
We transferred the fan club database to FansRule
shortly after the release of Just Push Play. We would like to assure
everyone that the information provided was current and correct with your
seniority status and frequent flyer miles intact cooperating with
FansRule to the fullest extent. FansRule has not contacted us indicating
there were any problems with the transfer or that they have had problems
working with the database.
The staff at Fan Asylum enjoyed our relationship with
Aerosmith, their management and especially the members of AF1 over the
past 16 years. We, along with the AF1 members, had no advance knowledge
of the change in fan club management until Just Push Play was released.
We wish FansRule all the best and hope everything works out for all the
members of AF1.

Here is some news from today's
Just play, you old coots
We're hardly ones to joke that the addition of
Aerosmith to WBCN-FM's River Rave bill raises the median age of the
performers by, oh, a few months. Hey, our attendance and that of WBCN
program director Oedipus raises the audience median age a bit, too. But,
in what we'd guess to be a highly accurate rumor, sources close to the
station say you can expect Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, and the bad boys of
suburban Boston to play the multiband event at Foxboro Stadium May 26.
An announcement from the station may come as soon as this afternoon. If
it happens, we bet the old coots will show young, moody whippersnappers
like Coldplay and Lifehouse how to rock at Foxboro Stadium!

Z100, America's most listened to radio station,
announces the first group of superstar artists for its annual Zootopia
2001 concert, set for Friday, June 1st at 7pm at Nassau Veterans
Memorial Coliseum. Some of the artists scheduled to perform this year

"This year's lineup - spanning from Aerosmith and
Lifehouse to Shaggy and Pink - is once again an excellent snapshot of
the hit music scene," commented Tom Poleman, Sr. VP of Programming,
Z100. "Just as today's pop charts span a variety of genres,
Zootopia will showcase the best in today's hit music, from rock to
Z100 will also give fans a free interactive experience

A portion of net proceeds will go to charity. The
first participating charity will be the National Child Identification
Program. Formed in 1997 by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA),
the National Child Identification Program has the goal of fingerprinting
60 million children. Since it's inception, the program has distributed
more than 8 million child I.D. kits. The effort is the largest child
identification program ever conducted. The program was created in
response to some startling statistics. Every year, 450,000 children run
away, an additional 350,000 are abducted by a family member and over
4,500 are abused by a stranger -- 800,000 children are missing somewhere
in America each year. That's one child every 40 seconds. Yet, less than
two percent of parents have a copy of their child's fingerprints to use
in case of emergency. With the support of then-governor George W. Bush,
Texas became the first (and only) state to have distributed a kit to
every child, grades K-12.

Af1 Calling it's
This was sent to me
Just got a phone call! Was told that
Aerosmith has stepped in and brought their own management team in to
work with Fansrule to straighten out this mess. Was assured several
times that the Fans will get tickets!! He said everybody with Aerosmith
management team and fansrule, is returning emails, faxes, and phone
calls, and they have all been working around the clock since yesterday!
I told the guy (no, forgot his name got to excited) that a couple of the
fans were pissed at Aerosmith about this, and then everybody would jump
on 'em. I told him that practically all of us knew it wasn't Aerosmith's
fault, and that Aerosmith would take care of it when they found out.
He's said he would let them know that the fans are still there for them,
even through a mess like this!!! LOVE AEROSMITH!!!
A Letter from FansRule
This was sent today from af1
On behalf of everyone at FansRULE, I want you to know
how sorry I am for the difficulty and confusion you have experienced as
Aeroforceone fan club members and especially around getting your
preferred seating concert tickets.
We are doing everything possible to clear up the mess;
to make you feel well taken care of; to earn your trust, first and
foremost, to get you connected to your Aerosmith tickets. As many of you
are experiencing – we are in the process of doing just that. We have
called many of you personally, and are continuing to reach out by phone
and email to many more of you to address your concerns about
Aeroforceone and FansRULE and again, most importantly, about getting you
Listen, we know you don’t want to hear us moan about
our problems. We know that you really just want to get your tickets.
Many of you are pissed off, and have made it clear that you have trust
issues with the new fan club. You’ve also told us that you feel a lot
better about things when you get some answers about what’s gone wrong.
This is basically it – in the past, the fan club has always had
advance notice of tour dates and could make tickets available to fan
club members before tickets went on sale to the general public. What
happened this time is that the fan club, VH1, USAToday, SFX and
Ticketmaster all got official tour information at almost the same time.
(Yeah, of course there were some leaks, there always are.) Truth be
told, FansRULE was unprepared to handle the huge volume of ticket orders
that came in all at once. We believe that in future legs of
Aerosmith’s tour, we will be able to again provide fan club members
with advanced info and ticketing opportunities before they go on sale to
the general public, we certainly hope so. Better for you – better for
us to be able to serve you.
Because so many dates went on sale at the same time,
without the benefit of advanced notice, so many of the fan club members
– and there are thousands and thousands of you – called and emailed
all at once, which caused our systems to crash. We were unprepared for
the rush. So many of you, completely understandably, called, faxed and
emailed our offices wanting to know what happened – it took all of our
resources to field your requests and concerns. It became almost
impossible for us reach-out through the deluge of incoming messages. As
a result, we failed to give you information and get you your tickets in
a way that would have made you feel as though you were being taken care
of the way you deserve to be. And again, we are terribly sorry.
Now, we have added staff and have taken additional
measures to help us to carry the load. We are continuing to respond to
you to via email or phone so that we can sort the ticket thing out. We
are reorganizing our ability to accommodate your ticket requests, and as
soon as we have our systems up and running, we will let you know so that
you can get your tickets. We are working toward having this completed in
a matter of days, and will keep you posted daily.
Rest assured that although some shows are being
reported as “Sold Out”, it does not mean that the fan club tickets
are sold out.
As you may know, tickets will be going on sale for the
following shows on Wednesday April 25th (Columbus – July 11; Phoenix
– Aug. 26; Atlanta – Sep. 17; Dallas – Sep. 1; Sacramento – Aug.
12; Nashville – Sep. 19) Saturday April 28th (Chicago – July 5;
Alpine Valley – July 7; San Diego – Aug 16; Las Vegas – Aug. 18;
Memphis – Sep. 5; Virginia Beach – Sep. 11) and Sunday April 29th
(Concord - Aug. 8; Mountain View – Aug. 14; Irvine Aug. 20 & 22nd;
San Bernadino – Aug. 24). The fan club has held at least enough
tickets to provide each fan club member in each of those markets with
one-pair of tickets. Please bear in mind that we expect an onslaught of
ticket requests and are in the process of setting up a system handle the
We will be posting updates on www.aeroforceone.com and
will be emailing you the updates as well. We are working round-the-clock
to do everything we can to provide you with fan club service you can
To those of you who are angry and frustrated, I, we
got your message – loudly and clearly. To the many of you who have
been patient, understanding and supportive, I extend my gratitude. And
to all of you Aeroforceone Fan Club members – I can only promise to do
my very best to make things right.
Very truly yours,
Another message from Fansrule
THERE IS NOTHING LIKE AN AEROSMITH FAN
There is nothing like an Aerosmith fan! 39,000 calls
to order tickets in a day - y’all crashed the call center. The people
who take phone orders have never seen such passion for a rock and roll
The dedication of Aerosmith fans is amazing. We
calculated 2 tickets per fan for the closest venue and a moderate amount
of additional tickets for traveling fans and new fan club members. Not
even NASA scientists could have anticipated that membership in Aero
Force One would grow 30% in a two-week period. Only a very special band
like Aerosmith can rally that kind of excitement in people.
Our goal is to please the members of Aero Force One.
Honestly. We know it doesn't’ seem that way at the moment, but it’s
the truth. In order to better accommodate you, we’ve put a venue
request button on http://www.aeroforceone.com.
Tell us what shows you’re going to want to see and
we’ll do our best to fulfill your request.

due to order phone line busy signals, error-filled and unusable online
order forms, and closed customer service lines. Fans are up in arms and
blaming fan club management for the snafu.
Getting concert tickets was an Aero-ing
And this is from today's Boston
Herald's Inside Track:
by Gayle Fee and Laura Raposa
Tuesday, April 24, 2001
The high-flying members of Aeroforce One - aka the
Aerosmith fan club - say they've become Jaded with the way the new club
operator, Fanrule, handled ticket sales for the Bad Boys' summer
Busy phones, computer errors and other electronic
snafus left longtime fans ticketless - and Cryin'!
``Phone lines were busy for hours,'' sobbed one
cyberfan. ``There was a total lack of communication and an abundance of
misinformation, computer error messages, lock-ups and inability to log
on. People are sad, angry, and frustrated.''
Following the brouhaha, Fanrule closed down its call
center and as of yesterday, will only sell tickets via the Aeroforce One
The band's Boston man, John Bionelli, told the Track
he's only heard from a few frustrated fans.
``I got three voice mails and two faxes from people
who couldn't get through,'' Bionelli said.
``No one is going to get shut out of the shows, but
their fan base in Boston is so huge, the allotment of tickets the fan
club has for the local shows sells out fast. And like anything, if you
snooze, you lose.''
Bionelli suggested Aeroforce Oneites keep an eye on
the Web site for further info.
'Cuz, of course, you Don't Want To Miss A Thing. . . .
April 22, 2001
Ok I got up this morning
(actually around noon) and tickets went back on sale. Unfortunately a lot
of the venues including mine were sold out. For those of you who's venue
is not listed yet , I'm sure it will be soon, but then again with fans
rule who knows.
The Angry Fans
may have known they're are many enraged fans lately. Aeroforceone's new
management (fansrule) is in chaos. A lot of fans are perturbed due to
Af1’s problems in delivering the fans their preferred seating. Many people have reported that ordering the tickets
online has been unsafe. Other people’s credit card information pops
up in their confirmation screen!!! So Please be careful! I have
decided that I wont try to buy any tickets from Aeroforceone’s website
after that. Many fans have e-mailed fansrule with their complaints. You
can see a forum packed full of complaints at: http://www.fansrule.com/forum/list.cfm?forum=1
is what some of the fans had to say from the Aero-boards:
have been a member for 7 years, and I can't even get a pair of tixs to a
show in my area...thanks for jerking us along, now I can't even get tixs
thru ticketmaster except crappy lawn seats...I rather stay home and
listen to my CDS! I have e-mailed you several times w/ no response...I
can't order tixs online somebody else's member # is stuck in my puter,
and I can't get it out.
This has been 1 hell of a nightmare!
have someone else's personal information on my computer as well. Liv, I
deleted all my cookies and checked and his id and information was gone.
Unfortunately, about an hour later I came and checked again and lo and
behold, he is back on my computer.
I will not get to hear, "and now I turn you over to my good
friend...Mr....Joe....Fuckin'....PERRY!". Steven, I don't know what
to say. I just got back from church and prayed that somewhere in all
this illogical fall out, that some fans would get some tix. Well, they
did. I wanted to give my daughter her sixteenth BD at Pine Knob, but
with the fansrule weirdness, and MI's ticketmaster down, only the people
in line at the venues or at a ticket agency got the seats. Detroit is
sold out and I have hung with devoted fans in chat and online for the
whole weekend to find that there are no more fans seats in Detroit. But
I hung in there, because as a rocker myself, I say that watching you
still gives me hope of playing the large gigs in my fifties. Rock 'n'
Roll shouldn't beat you down, it should lift you up.
This is the first year in the last fifteen, that I would have been able
to stand for part of show, if I had fans seating, that's why I joined
AF1. I broke my neck in the Army in 85, and have been watching you guys
from handicap sections way back in BFE with binos over the past 15. So I
join the most talked about fan club in the world...where meet and greets
happen...guitars and body parts get signatures...fans band together on
road trips and at weekend rock orgies in some town awaiting the
show...what a gig. Well, next year I have to have surgery on my knees
and back in the saddle I go...back to the handicap section of the pavilion
that's not covered by superstructure and leaves you venerable to the
elements and only steps away from the lawn seats that are 1/3 the price.
I can't even get those...my wheel chair is a fire hazard...oh
yah...we've gone thru this before.
Well Guys...all of you...You did not chose us to be your fans! WE chose
to be your fans because of the energy you deliver in the music and on
stage. My voice will still be in tact 'cause I won't get the chance to
scream JOE! JOE! JOE! during the solos. Two or 3 years ago, Brad saw us
in chairs at the closing show of the Pine Knob season, and sent us all
picks, that was cool. But if that all the closer we can be, even after
joining the club, or purchasing that old quadraphonic system so we could
be the first to hear Toys in the Attic in true quad sound, or even stay
up late or waking up early or putting up with this last ticket bs, then
unfortunately my daughters 16th will slide...she likes your music...we
have common R&R bonds because I cover your tunes and she hears them
all the time. I even went thru occupational therapy after my accident
with a fender accoustic and the only tape I had in the Army
Hospital...Toys In The Attic...I wouldn't be covering your tunes if my
wife didn't bring me my guitar. I wouldn't be slinging two Les Pauls if
it wasn't for your sound. I wouldn't have gone out on closed Michigan
Hwys to pass through State Police barricades to get to the closed Ohio
hwys in order to get to Toledo' Sports Arena to give my wife her first
stadium show during your "get a grip" tour. You guys didn't
call off the show even though there was a bi-state weather
emergency...do you remember that show in Toledo in 3 feet of snow and
blizzard. Why did we come? For the same reasons why you played...the
music moves the fans. Think about that. I hope you get the letter I
mailed before I tried to get the tickets I was guaranteed, Its up
lifting and asks your assistance in helping others whose prosthesi flags
them as they enter the arenas...the ones who are told that they can't
have their seats because they're a fire hazard...
I thought we were just fans with chairs. When Pine Knob (DTE Energy)
calls me back tomorrow, (because I was smart enough to reserve handicap
seating), I'll ask them to release those tickets to someone who can't
stand for the show this year. Let someone else have a taste of your
Joey's Power, or Brad's, or Tom using timpani mallets on the bass...give
another fan the chance to go.
Sincerely and Sadly,
an old friend with vinyl, 8-tracks, and cds to keep me goin...this is
Cpl. KJ Stone, US Army retire/disabled, af1 member, saying so long
Maybe will catch you at the Auburn Hills if you return in the fall or
Here is what I sent to fansrule:
I would like
to know why when I read your ticket alert last night on af1 it said
there will be plenty of tickets to go around, that it isn’t a race.
Well, I was still skeptical, so I stayed up until midnight, no one was
there at midnight, or 1am for that matter, then website updated it's
info as it now said 2am, I stayed up
until 2:30 am (Eastern Standard time) trying to get tickets and once
again no one was there. So I go to bed and get up today to try and get my
tickets and find out that my venue "DTE" Music Theater,
Clarkston Michigan is already sold out! What good are available tickets
if they are 2000 miles from their fans? Throughout the take over of
fansrule this fan club has been a mess. To many promises and not
enough action. I can tell you that this will be my last subscription to
this so called fan club, as it will be for many others. If
you don't change the way you do business.
you for your time.
After this, I went back to af1
and checked for tickets and it said that I had already bought my limit
in seats. This doesn’t make sense because it told me before that the
tickets for my venue were sold out, and I never even put my credit card
Classic Rock magazine
The April 2001 issue of Classic Rock has a two page
review of Just Push Play along with a large picture of the band on page
64. Also, p.8 has a small bit of info saying that 3 versions of JPP will
be released in North America, and p.13 has an add for JPP. Then,
ofcourse, the index page had a small pic of Steven and Joe.

LIV AND LET DIE
THINK twice before you decide to rush in and rescue a
damsel in distress.
You could be letting yourself in for a whole heap of
messy trouble - that's the message behind this witty, sexy, comedy
Downbeat barman Randy, played by Matt Dillon,
witnesses gorgeous babe Jewel, (the voluptuous Liv Tyler) being harassed
by a grease-ball biker.
And he does what any gentleman would do - he steps
into the fray.
Then, before he can blink, his peaceful, if dull,
world is turned upside down. Because Jewel is a con woman, who uses her
obvious assets to wind weak-willed men around her delicious little
Like a cross between There's Something About Mary and
Pulp Fiction, One Night At McCool's unravels into a hilariously dark
plot of deception and seduction.
And ends with a stylish blood-bath shoot-out.
No man is immune to Jewel's sexual allure. Every
bloke, from Randy to his married lawyer cousin, to a sad widowed police
detective (John Goodman), finds himself unwittingly enslaved by her sexy
Jewel makes Randy take the wrap for the men she
murders while simultaneously making him commit burglaries to fulfill her
desire for a home full of luxury goods.
Each of the men in her life perceives her in different
ways, to fit their fondest female fantasies.
It's produced by Michael Douglas' independent
production company and he gamely picks himself in the most unappealing
role - as a sleazy, wig-wearing hit man hired by Randy who hangs about
in bingo halls playing housey-housey when he's not killing people for
This is a genuinely original, twisty black comedy.
Matt Dillon is marvelous, Liv Tyler is luscious and

sexiest car wash scene ever on the big screen, book yourself in for One
Night At McCool's.
What is up with Aeroforceone (Fansrule)?!?!
I just went back to
Aeroforceone.com and they have changed the time to 2am. It's the same
message but they changed the time.
What is up with Aeroforceone (Fansrule)?!?!
it's 12:46 am and I tried calling AF1 a bunch of times and there is
nothing. There was a recording that says please try your call again. The
website is also offering nothing yet. If you notice the message by
fansrule I posted (what is now yesterday) said that the tickets will go
on sale tonight at 12pm eastern standard time. There is no such thing as
12pm tonight. Now I'm wondering if the misprint meant 12am tonight or
12pm tomorrow afternoon? If any of you get through and get tickets
please let me know!

have just recently submitted the form) will be able to purchase tickets
on Friday through internet or phone. She said that she was positive
about this when I asked her. In addition, you don't need your member

Aerosmith in the USA
a small paragraph appearing in the Life section. "D" in Life
Line in today's USA Today Newspaper.
Tom Hamilton's News From The Road
Typical. No sooner do I get my computer out and we hit
turbulence. Reminds me of the quake in Japan the other day. Joe and I
were basically the only ones who felt it. I kept asking people from the
band, from Sony, from housekeeping, from everywhere. Nobody noticed. I
even asked a guy who spoke no English at all and he shook his head. I
knew I wasn’t crazy because Joe called me the minute it stopped and we
compared notes. The next day I ripped open the Japan Times and found the
report on page two. A 5.3 out of a possible 7 on the scale they use in
Japan. It was actually on the news a minute or two after it happened.
They had a map with numbers all over it but I couldn’t tell which part
was Tokyo. They kept showing that and another scene with the typical
security camera footage of people running around an office trying to
keep stuff from falling off their desks as overhead light fixtures swing
back and forth.
So now I have a way to describe the quake. It was like
turbulence only in a building instead of an airplane. Come to think of
it the plane we’re on now is as big as a building. Those of you who
have been through these things must be rolling your eyes. Gimme a break.
Let me have my little experience here. It wasn’t a big one it’s just
that it’s basically my first one. I got my Quake cherry popped and I
want to talk about it.
So we’re on our way home. We started out in New York
a few weeks ago and since then have been to Germany and, obviously,
Japan. So I’ll start in New York. Makes sense, doesn’t it? We got
down there on the…I can’t remember. It was a Wednesday, I think. I
should write this stuff down. The first order of bidness was rehearsal
for Saturday Night Live. This was the fourth time we’ve done the show
and the vibe still hasn’t faded. The show has been on almost as long
as we’ve been making records. It feels cool to walk into these
hallowed halls and actually know people and think of them as old
friends. Man, the list of people who have hosted there, played there and
worked there is huge. My mind is flooding. I won’t even attempt a
Rehearsal was good. We decided we’d play “Jaded”
and then do “Big 10 Inch” for the second song. We were pretty fluent
on “Jaded” and “Big 10 Inch” is part of our DNA. I remember
thinking of 10” as a novelty song when we first recorded it but to
this day it puts a smile on people’s faces.
The next day we had a photo session for Rolling Stone.
We all met up at a studio where Steven and Joe were shooting the cover
and then set out wit’ all our make-up, hair, wardrobe and other
“make-‘em-look-pretty” peoples. Destination: the Chelsea Hotel
down on the lower West Side. Actually, the area is called Chelsea but I
thought that might be too obvious. The Chelsea is a notoriously hip
place where up and coming and about to be down and out musicians have
made their mark; usually on the walls or the floor. The Dolls, the Sex
Pistols and countless others have done their best to destroy it or
themselves amongst the layered paint and wrought iron. For some reason
we never stayed there. We’ve run the gamut between glory and shame in
New York but never found ourselves spending time there. Maybe we’re
lucky. We crammed into a tiny suite that was jammed with photo equipment
and people. On one end was a bed, surrounded with guitar amps and other
musical paraphernalia. We wandered around for a minute and found our
places. Just as the shooting started Steven jumped up on the bed with
his mike stand and the flashes flashed. I couldn’t help wondering who
has stayed there. How many famous people have shot up or gotten their
rocks off on this very mattress. I wouldn’t want to join them but in a
way we all felt the need to rise to the silent intensity of the space. I
wish I had a list of all the killer songs that have been written there.
Now that I’ve been there I think I might understand them better.
A half-hour later we got in the elevator and aimed for
the lobby. I had to stop and gape at all the cool paintings and
sculptures before heading out the door and down onto the subway with our
photographer, Mark, and the rest of the entourage. Most of them waited
as we hurried on to the train and started doing pictures. The other
riders seemed to know how they were supposed to act as we snapped away.
Leave it to the New Yorkers not to get all impressed with the situation.
We mugged for the camera guerrilla style for about fifteen minutes and
then got off at the station right under our hotel. Military precision,

NEWS FLASH: “JUST
PUSH PLAY” 2001 HITS 48 CITIES
America’s premier rock & roll band Aerosmith is hitting the road

unforgettable performance at the Super Bowl, this legendary group of
rockers demonstrated why they have earned a massive reputation as a
show-stopping live band,” said Bruce Kapp, Senior Vice President of
Touring, SFX Music Group. “Aerosmith fans will witness one of the most
spectacular concerts this summer with the “Just Push Play” tour.”
Having sold nearly 100 million albums
worldwide over the course of a career spanning a quarter century,
Aerosmith have not merely survived and thrived, they’ve transcended

Aerosmith’s sound is a constant on the charts. Aerosmith started the

AEROSMITH TOUR NEWS :
…JUST PUSH HERE FOR THE DETAILS
For months, rumors have been buzzing
everywhere about a full-scale Aerosmith tour. As Joe Perry explained
in a recent AOL chat, “We start in June, and we'll probably be out
on the road for two years.”
Two years. Damn.
Anyway, SFX.com will disclose the first
round of official details this Monday. Bookmark this page, and we’ll
fill you in on the facts.
Meanwhile, what can we expect this time
out from the Rock’n Roll Hall of Famers from Boston? “We can have
bombs and blow-up dolls,” Steven Tyler shrugged, “But it's better
to keep my sex life out of this.”
"Hey, man," Joe Perry
told the UK’s Daily Telegraph, "it's still a party for
us. I'm a rock 'n' roll gypsy. It's what I was, and always will be.
And it's a gas to get out there and play.”
"The creative power," adds
Tyler, "or whatever it is that this band is when five of us are
on stage, I think we've all been in awe of that. It's the original
tires on the Ferrari. It's still there, and it works, and we all feel
like doing it, and no one's going bald and fat and doesn't give a
s**t. Everybody looks good and wants to rock.”
You heard the man...Just Push
Play…and stay tuned for the details.
SFX also shows when tickets will go
on sale at a couple venues: Hartford CT
& Burgettstown, PA http://sfx.com/artist.asp?artistID=237

News On The Tour! Aerosmith and VH1
VH1 is going to be sponsoring the upcoming Just Push
Play tour. This was just said on the VH1 music news which had lots of
nice interview footage with Joe Perry! Anyway, Rebecca Rankin
mentioned at the end of the segment that VH1 is planning a
"special Aerosmith week to launch the tour" and on June 6th,
they will be bringing us "opening night live from Hartford,
They said dates in most major cities are confirmed
and they had a good few minutes with the band talking about it. Joe
also said that they are planning on playing a lot of songs off the new
record but aren't going to be taking out any old favorites.
Liv Tyler Interview from www.mirror.co.uk
FILM: DOESN'T SHE SCRUB UP WELL?
Liv Tyler may have rock 'n' roll in her veins but she has no time
for the wild life that goes with it.
She may be the offspring of a rock legend and rock
'n' roll may be in her blood, but actress Liv Tyler insists it was not
inevitable that she should end up getting engaged to a Brit rocker in
a band called Spacehog. "It's hard to say what attracts me to
someone," she insists with a pout that only her mouth, which is
as wide as the Atlantic, would be capable of. "It could be a
simple thing, like the way a guy moves or smiles. I don't fall for a
type. I never really dated and the two significant relationships I've
had just happened. They were meant to be."
Given her genes, it's hardly a coincidence that Liv
- whose new film One Night At McCool's opens today - should fall for a
bass player called Royston Langdon. Can there be a more Spinal Tap
name than that?
Royston, 28, and hailing from Leeds, got engaged to
Liv on Valentine's Day more than a year after the actress, who's still
only 23, split from long-time boyfriend, actor Joaquin Phoenix.
Liv's parentage is well known. She is the daughter
of Aerosmith's motormouth lead vocalist and Mick Jagger lookalike
Steve Tyler, although until she was in her teens she assumed her dad
was another rock hero, Todd Rundgren. Her mother is Bebe Buell a
one-time groupie and a musician in her own right.
"It's funny, because of my dad everybody thinks
I grew up in this crazy rock 'n' roll world," says Liv. "But
I didn't even meet him for the first time until I was eight and I
didn't know then that he was my real dad. I met him at one of Todd's
concerts. Actually, the biggest rock influence was my mother who was
in a really great band, but I grew up in Portland, Maine, and I didn't
come to New York until I was ten or 11.
"I had a pretty normal childhood, but people
don't want to believe that. They portray me as this innocent girl who
grew up in a rock 'n' roll environment. I don't see my parents as
rebels so much as just different. Basically it was just my mom and me,
which is a different dynamic from mother and father and child. She was
tough. I always told her where I was and I had to be home at a certain
time. She wouldn't let me watch violence in films or on TV, but nudity
was OK. Somehow I understood what sex was without a birds-and-bees
Liv's story is extraordinary. She is the product of
a short-lived romance in the '70s that went largely unnoticed by her
dad at least, who was in a chemical haze at the time. Because of her
mum's long-term romance with Todd Rundgren, Liv grew up thinking of
him as dad. Although Tyler and his daughter now get on well, he would
hardly have made much of a father-figure while she was growing up. We
are, after all, talking about a man who admits to not being able to
remember entire chunks of his life, let alone the occasional stadium
performance in front of 150,000 people.
Whatever her reasons, Bebe Buell probably got things
about right by holding back that little surprise for a few years.
"I wasn't around drugs myself," says Liv,
"but knowing what my father went through made it impossible for
me to ever be interested in drugs. I love wine, but if I get too drunk
one night I don't want to drink for another month. Except for
cigarettes, I don't have an addictive personality. Well, I'm a little
addicted to shopping."
That said, Steve Tyler was certainly around to help
his daughter when the time was right. Everyone remembers Aerosmith's
Crazy video which featured a teenage Liv and the equally young Alicia
Silverstone writhing seductively around on the bonnet of a sports car.
It was the break that propelled this attractive youngster into the
fast lane and, regardless of her relative naivety, she made the
transition from model to actress quickly and easily.
"When I was cast for my first film, Silent
Fall, in 1994 I had no experience," she recalls. "The first
scene I did I was supposed to come down the hall and steal a gun. The
assistant director said, 'There's your mark'. And I said, 'What's a
Today, such faux pas are little more than a distant
memory for her. Although still only in her early twenties, Liv is
already a veteran of the likes of Armageddon, Robert Altman's Cookie's
Fortune and Bertolucci's Stealing Beauty. And this year looks like
being her best yet.
This week every hot-blooded male in Britain will
have the opportunity to whimper at the sight of her curves in One
Night At McCools. This quirky comedy comes from Michael Douglas's new
indie company Further Films and he co-stars as a bewigged gunman. Liv
plays the curvaceous siren Jewell, and as the story is told from
multiple perspectives she provides three separate performances.
"I really do think that movie is so funny," she says.
Another Altman movie, the romantic comedy Dr T And
The Women, follows later this year, but by Christmas Liv will be
better known as an elf. Not a small, green elf with a funny hat, you
understand, but a tall, willowy, sword-wielding elf princess in Peter
Jackson's much-anticipated pounds 100m epic trilogy Lord Of The Rings.
Fortunately for her male fans, Liv is not undergoing any major image
change for the part - apart from a pair of pointy ears that have
already drawn comparison with Star Trek's Mr Spock.
"I'm not sure how much of it I'm allowed to
talk about," she says of the production that has been filmed in
secrecy in the countryside near Wellington, New Zealand. "It was
a challenge for me as an American speaking in an English accent
"As an elf you have to be so erect and centred,"
Liv adds. "We have to move effortlessly and gracefully."
OK Liv. We'll just have to take your word for it.
Sunday Sun Article
In this past weekends newspaper, the Sunday Sun,
from April 8th 2001, there is a small picture in the corner of Steven
and Liv Tyler and then a short article on them
Rocker Steven Tyler says he was moved to tears when
Spacehog star Royston Langdon asked permission to marry his gorgeous
actress daughter Liv.
"It almost got my tear duct moving," Tyler
says of his reaction to Langdon's sweet and formal requested.
"Royston was really nervous, flipping out and
stuttering," Tyler recalls. "It was old-fashioned. I said,
'Do you love her?' and he said, 'Very much so.' "
Tyler is so moved he plans to set aside his
outrageous rock star garb when the big day comes and put on a
traditional penguin suit.
"Sure, I'll wear a tuxedo, " he says.
"But I'll still be rock'n'roll dad. Maybe a grandfather. Hell,
why not? I've done everything else."

Single, Tour Plans At MTV Japan Re-launch
Recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees
Aerosmith have chosen "Fly Away From Here" as the second
single from their latest album, Just Push Play.
At a star-studded celebration Wednesday in Tokyo
commemorating the re-launch of MTV Japan, the Boston rockers said a
video for the song is in the works, guided by director Joseph Kahn's
futuristic treatment. "Fly Away From Here" is expected to
surface at radio in early June, a Columbia spokesperson said.
The 28-year recording veterans also revealed that
they'll embark on a summer tour, set to kick off in June.
Just Push Play, Aerosmith's 13th studio album,
debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart when it was released
in early March, and like its predecessor, 1997's Nine Lives, it is
expected to reach platinum status.
While some bands are barely able to sustain a meager
existence years past their prime, Aerosmith have proven themselves to
be living legends by releasing hit albums in every decade since the
"You gotta keep it fresh by writing new songs,
writing new albums, going on tours, coming up with new stage designs
and places to go," singer Steven Tyler said. "[That] just
keeps it fresh [because] you always want to outdo what you did last
"There's always such great music coming out ...
so we like to listen to it and hear what's going on," bassist Tom
Hamilton said. "But it's also a challenge: Can we keep up? And we
always want to be able to think that we're keeping up with everybody
else putting out new music."
Ever the Buddhist-like wise man, Joe Perry had a
much simpler explanation for his band's seemingly endless endurance.
"Basically, we're still fans of music,"
the guitarist said. "We still love it. And the same feeling that
we had when [we heard] music when we were 17 years old and felt that
we could maybe get up onstage and do it [ourselves], we still have

Follow-up to 'Pink into Aerosmith?'
In an old issue of TV Guide, August 5-11, 2000, with
Clint Eastwood on the cover, in Rebecca Rankin's column "Music
News", there is a picture of Pink and this is what it has to say
"It may be the name of her latest single, but
Pink isn't like 'Most Girls'. She's toured with 'N Sync and Sisqo, but
her dream is to record with perennial bad boy Steven Tyler of
Aerosmith. "I love his voice, his music, his attitude, his looks.
I'm just infatuated. And pink's his favorite color." But her
ultimate goal? "To take over the whole world and paint it
pink", she says. "I'm about to make people forget

officially on sale, according to the guy at The World. When I told him
I was in the fan club, he said fan club members would probably hear
about it before they would, but you know how that goes. I think they

Aerosmith Play to Win
longest-running dysfunctional family sitcom
It's Friday morning on the set of Today,
and this morning's guests are Aerosmith. They're here to discuss
their role as the elder statesmen of American rock. In just a
couple of days, Aerosmith are getting inducted into the Rock &
Roll Hall of Fame while they're still at the top of their game;
indeed, they're going in while they have a new album in the Top
Ten, Just Push Play, as well as a hit single,
"Jaded," a song that sums up the Aerosmith sound as
perfectly as "Start Me Up" summed up the Stones.

AF1 Sell Off (as reported by Aeroheaduk)
Got a flier from Fan Asylum Europe - their last one.
It explains what's been going on and particularly that FansRule does
NOT have any world wide offices but best of all they are getting rid
of all their stock - They have bundled everything into goodie bags and
priced them at £20, £30, £40, £50 and £60 - the more the cost the
bigger the bundle and they reckon everything in the boxes is at half
price or better. Example the £20 bag would contain 2 T Shirts,
complete set of back stage stickers for the Nine Lives Tour, plus
other bits and pieces like pins, back stage passes etc. The £60 ones
(only 10 boxes) contain all of the lower cost goddie bundles plus one
more expensive bit of memorabilia like for example JK's drum sticks
and 1 box has a special Jap Tour Jacket! The others lower cost boxes
will have other lesser items like e.g. shot glasses in ranging order
We have opted for the BIG bundle so will let you guys know how lucky
we were. I wonder whether AF1 USA will be doing similar but suspect
Fansrule may be negotiating buying the merchandise from them as
quantities would be at a much larger scale than in Europe.
