Liz Smith Column...Cyrinda's At It Again.
By: Liz Smith
The Rock Scene, De-Glammed
New York- When I attended the Academy Awards several years
ago, I sat in front of a very attractive longhaired man who tapped me on the
shoulder and said, "I just love you and your column." I was pleased,
naturally, but didn't have a clue who he was. Moments later, I saw him agian-onstage-
performing in a ring of fire. It was Steven Tyler of Aerosmith! (I remember
then that we had run a long column on Tyler's beautiful actress daughter, Liv
Tyler-setting some erroneous gossip straight-not long before.)
Now comes a book, "Dream On-Living On The Edge With Steven Tyler and Aerosmith," from Berkley Boulevard Press. Author Cyrinda Foxe-Tyler tells all the inside dish here and includes everybody from Andy Warhol to Al Pacino. There will be 16 pages of never-before-seen photos as well.
Foxe-Tyler begins her book by saying that when she first met Steven Tyler, "He was wearing a long, lacy outfit, and he was coughing up blood." This is an EX-WIFE's -eye view of sex, drugs, rock n' roll and how, "drugs destroyed us all."

Steven and Joe Sail Boston
Steven and Joe have been spending brief moments out of the studio to greet the Tall Ships 2000 Race Series that hailed from Bermuda and is making it's way up to Boston! Noted as the largest gathering of Tall Ships ever in the United States, the Tall Ships will descend into Boston Harbor led by the USS Constitution. Although Steven and Joe were on separate boats while indulging in this historic event, they did have cellular phones on hand to communicate with each other - what ever in the world could they be talking about while Tall Ships go sailing by? Getting back into the studio to work on a new track!
The Tylers spotted at the Independence Mall in Kingston
I spy summer fun
Our spies spied ``The Perfect Storm'' hunk George Clooney -
who can't seem to tear himself away from Massachusetts - taking in the play,
``How I Fell In Love,'' in one of the five rows at the very intimate Nikos
Stage at the Williamstown Theater Festival. George
watched the action alone from Row C. Coincidentally -
not! - the play stars Traylor Howard of ``Me, Myself & Irene'' and ``Two
Guys and a Girl'' fame, who George reportedly is dating. Rhea
Perlman, aka Mrs. Danny DeVito, dashed out to grab some popcorn and Cokes at
the 7 p.m. showing of ``Chicken Run'' at the new General Cinema in the Fenway
the other night. Speaking of movies, Aerosmith's main
man, Steven Tyler; his wife, Teresa; and a dude who looked like songwriter
Desmond Child of ``Livin' La Vida Loca'' and ``Dude Looks Like A Lady'' fame
took in ``The Perfect Storm'' at the Independence Mall in Kingston. Perhaps
it was a little break from a songwriting session at Steven's South Shore
manse. . . .

It is really cool. It has 2 go cart tracks, one being easier than the other. You have to suit up just like a real race car driver, jump suit, helmet, neck brace, the whole nine yards. You have to buy a license to drive. They have different kinds of license's to buy. Annual ones cost $25.00 and then each time you come in you pay either 20 or 25 dollars depending on which track you go on. You get a 5 lap practice run, then you go onto a 10 lap race. They have a score board with everyone's name on it, just like a real race track...
The place is really beautiful. It has a restaurant, game room, pool hall and a full bar. But, they do give you a bracelet when you come in and if you order a drink at the bar they cut it off and you CAN NOT race. Which is a good thing. They even have function halls to rent. In the front lobby they have a full size drag race car, not sure if it was a model or the real thing. Pictures and televisions going with race car stuff. Didn't see any of our favorite guys, but the guy that was telling us the rules for the racing did tell us that Brad and Joe are in there all the time. Any one that comes to visit should go check it out, its not really far from Mount Blue....

Kerrang Magazine Article
This was in Kerrang this week. The article was about the A to Z of rock and roll decadence.
U IS FOR UNDERAGE
When you're a successful rock star, all notions of decency tend to be tossed away like a tv through a hotel window. Rock stars inevitably attract younger fans, and many don't let something as trivial as morals get in the way of there libido.
One man guilty of just that was Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler. According to Stephen Davis's official biography Walk this way, Tyler gave little more than an autograph to a girl who had barely stepped into the spot light of puberty. The year was 1975. 18 mounths of constant road work had elevated (the smiths) into the big league. Back stage at a successful Seattle show the 27 year front mans eye was caught by a 14 year old girl named Diana Hall " a skinny young mall- chick who was beautiful and had more legs than a bucket of chicken". " she was there with a bunch of her girlfriends and they were being bi sexual to get my attention, and I was aroused to no end Tyler told Davis". "Nothing turns me on like being in a room with 2 women. All men think about it but few have done it. It is the most beautiful thing, like being between mothers breasts". The pair fell in love and Tyler moved her into her Boston apartment so that they could be together- but only after Halls parents signed her over to Tyler as her guardian, A costly legal process. unfortunately, there relationship crashed to its end after three years, when Tyler drug addiction took hold and his young consort fell pregnant. they split up shortly after the abortion. "Diana lost her childhood," recounted the singer sadly," and I lost my mind."
