This past weekend was our Demon of Screamin' birthday, Sunday March 26 to be exact (as if you didn't already know!) Well how did the Boston frontman spend his special day? In a quiet fashion at home with the family. Quoteable quote: "It's good to be home."

Thanks to all the AF1 crew members for sending in their birthday wishes! Joe Perry also had quite a relaxing weekend watching his Boston Bruins face off the Los Angeles Kings at the Fleet Center on Saturday. This action-packed hockey game proved to be a sure winner for the Bruins as they were up 3 goals in the 2nd period, but the Kings came back to tie the game up in the third period. Final score - Bruins 4 Kings 4. Joe was a bit bummed out that his boys ended up in a tie game at the Fleet Center, but it didn't stop him from returning to the Fleet Center two days later!

On Monday, Joe, Steven, and longtime friend Mark "Livin On The Edge" Hudson trekked to the Fleet Center to catch the "CSNY2K" tour of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young! They all agreed the show rocked - after all, CSNY have not jammed together on tour for 25 years!

Our most favorite drummer, Joey, spent much of last week in his home in Florida. So if ya' catch a glimpse of a blond transplanted New Yorker basking in the Florida sun, chances are it's our Boston Bad Boy!

               Brad Burns Rubber at NASCAR

If  Brad Whitford weren't a guitarist for Aerosmith, you can bet he'd be a grease monkey down in the pit at NASCAR races all over the country. Race cars are a huge hobby for Brad, and occasionally the sport indulges his love by asking him to host events; for example this past September he was asked to be the grand marshal at the races held in New Hampshire. This photo was taken at the finish line at New Hampshire International Speedway, in Loudon, New Hampshire.

Mount Blue Restaurant on the 'Chronicle show'


It looks like the years-in-the-works Doors tribute album may finally see the light of day this summer, and when it surfaces, Marilyn Manson, Stone Temple Pilots, Creed, and Smash Mouth will be among the artists on board.

Doors guitarist Robby Krieger, who guests on most of the tracks on the album, told MTV News this week that the long-awaited project will finally arrive this summer.

Word of the tribute album first surfaced in January of 1998, when Smash Mouth spoke with the MTV Radio Network about reworking the Doors' nugget "Peace Frog" (see "Smash Mouth Does The Lizard King For Tribute Album"). Later that same year, Creed told MTV News that they would be on board as well.

Now Krieger confirms that contributions from both bands will make the final cut, as well as Marilyn Manson's cover of "Five To One" and Stone Temple Pilots' rendition of "Break On Through." Other confirmed acts include The Cult, Aerosmith, Chrissie Hynde, Oleander, Bo Diddley, and John Lee Hooker with the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea on "Roadhouse Blues." Iggy Pop is also in talks to appear on the album with a cover of "L.A. Woman."

While many of the tracks are new, some (such as Aerosmith's cover of "Love Me Two Times" which appeared on the 1990 soundtrack to "Air America") have turned up elsewhere.

When the album surfaces this summer, here's what you're likely to find:

Marilyn Manson - "Five To One"
Stone Temple Pilots - "Break On Through"
Creed - "Riders On The Storm"
Smash Mouth - "Peace Frog"
John Lee Hooker with Flea - "Roadhouse Blues"
The Cult - "Wild Child"
Travis Meeks (of Days Of The New) with The Doors' John Densmore - "The End"
Bo Diddley - "Love Her Madly"
Chrissie Hynde - "Touch Me"
Oleander - "Hello, I Love You"
Aerosmith - "Love Me Two Times"

Mia Tyler is just about to shed the qualifier, "daughter of Aerosmith's lead singer Steven Tyler, half-sister of Liv Tyler." She's starring in a film of her own.

Tyler plays Laura, the lead role in the indie film, A Little Bit of Lipstick, now in production. It's a coming-of-age story about a full-figure teen who doesn't need a body makeover to be beautiful. All her character needs is self-expression and a touch of the cosmetic enhancement suggested by the title.

"I love the idea of independent films," says Tyler. "Maybe it's my age, I'm 21, but I want to go against the norm. Independents aren't the same old boring stuff by big-name directors.

"With a long tousled mane, pierced nose and tongue, and three tattoos- one in the shape of a dragon that nearly covers her back-Tyler is one young woman who is not shy about going against the norm. A self-proclaimed wild child in her "earlier years," she saw the inside Studio 54 when she was five. "I made friends with the office workers there," she says. "I photocopied my hands and feet and gave copies to KISS and Michael Jackson on the dance floor before being dragged home at 11:00 PM.

"Tyler received lots of attention at home, too. "As soon as I could walk, I performed shows for my mom. I played radio talk show host and taped my voice." I called it the Me-Show."

T.G.I.AeroWeekend!


Some of our Boston Bad Boys had a very busy weekend as some were spotted rockin' around town and basking in the Sunshine State! Buckle up your AeroBelts and come along for the re-cap of Aerosmith's fab weekend!

Invited by Daryl Johnston of the Dallas Cowboys, Joey Kramer had a lively 'ol time at The Rack in Boston to take part in the NFL star-studded benefit for the Joshua Frase Foundation. The Joshua Frase Foundation, founded by NFL player Paul Frase and wife Alison created the Foundation for son Joshua who has a muscle disorder called Myotubular Myopathy. Meanwhile, our Demon of Screamin' and longtime friend Mark Hudson were grubbing out in a restaurant near Steven's home when two girls approached them. "Hey, did you know that Draw The Line are playing across the street?!?" Being the trooper that we all admire and love, Steven trekked on over to check out the Aerosmith tribute band. Although he did not join Draw The Line onstage, Steven was gracious enough to stay for the entire set.

Saturday night, Tom and wife Terry enjoyed an evening with the Pretenders at the Avalon Club in Boston. Accompanying the couple was New England Patriot's owner, Bob Kraft!

Brad spent most of the weekend basking in the Sunshine State checking out his love of auto racing at Daytona 500!
