Steven Tyler on new Carole King album

I just got an e-mail from the webmaster of The Unofficial Carole King Website, telling me that Steven Tyler does indeed lend a great vocal on Carole's new CD "Love Makes the World". Album in stores 9/25/01; Rockingale Records.

I first posted about this February 11, 2001. It was then reported that Steven Tyler did vocals with Carole King on the song "Monday Without You," written by King, Mark Hudson, and Paul Brady. The recording appearently took place in August last year in NYC. It was reported that one morning Steven Tyler came into the studio and gave a cameo performance singing a counter melody to Carole...

Aerosmith in a Dodge Ram Commercial

Actually, it's not that special. It just shows a Dodge truck driving under an airplane and next to a "tour truck" with the wings on the side, playing Just Push Play.. doesn't even show Aerosmith.

Aerosmith drummer asks $3.75M for S. Shore home

By SARAH COFFEY
The Patriot Ledger

MARSHFIELD - How’d you like to live like a rock star? You can - for $3.75 million.

That’s how much money it will cost to buy Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer’s mansion off Summer Street in Marshfield Hills.

Kramer has lived in the home since 1993.

Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler and rhythm guitarist Brad Whitford also live in Marshfield, and guitarist Joe Perry lives in Duxbury.

Word has it that Kramer and his wife, April, are moving to a new house near their old one.

Not that their old home is too shabby.

Realtor Judy O’Geara sold the Kramers their home in 1993. It has undergone extensive renovations since then, she said.

“They’ve done marvelous things with the property, tasteful and fun at the same time. They built a magnificent studio,” she said.

The pricey listing had real estate agents throughout the South Shore drooling with envy, but in the end, Home Center Real Estate of Hingham, won the listing.

Home Center won’t talk about the sale at the request of the Kramers, who want to limit publicity.

However, it’s hard to ignore when your local rock star puts his mansion on the market.

In fact, the company’s online description of the home mentions the Aerosmith connection:

“Luxury Monticello Georgian Colonial estate on over 5 acres with access to the North River and overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

“Electronic gate, formal entrance, professional recording studio, pool with four-room heated cabana/guest house and spa.

“Garden patios, koi fish pond, rolling lawns, mahogany fireplaced library, solarium, designer living and dining rooms, new granite kitchen and spectacular master bath, 10 bay garages.

“Retreat estate for the discerning buyer who wants total luxury and privacy. Possible dock/water rights easement. An Aerosmith property!”

The home has 15 rooms, seven bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths and five fireplaces, according to the online listing.

And who’s going to be in the market for the magnificent mansion?

“I bet it will be a cash buyer,” said Marshfield Realtor Betsy Hines. “Last year a lot of people were taking money out of dot-coms, and homes listed for a million and above were going for cash,”

She predicted the home will sell quickly.

“It’s probably a very reasonable price because the South Shore hasn’t caught up with some of the areas where prices are outlandish, or what you’d spend down at Cape Cod,” she said.

Another Marshfield Realtor, Judy O’Heara, isn’t so confident.

“It’s high - kind of a Cohasset price,” she said.

“There’s been an incredible slowdown in property over $600,000. Up to $400,000 or $500,000, we can’t list them fast enough. When we get up to between $600,000 to $800,000, it’s difficult.”

Las Vegas show photos/video

I was just informed about an online photo album from a radio station in Des Moines, IA (95 KGGO) containing pictures from their trip to Las Vegas. There are pictures from the Aerosmith concert that the morning show gave away tickets for. There is a one minute video of the opening of the concert, where Michael Buffer introduced the band. The quality is not the greatest, but you get the general idea of the opening. There are also a few pictures of the actual concert. Most of the photo album is various shots from the rest of the trip.

Here are the pictures from the concert in the album:

1. Steven mid-ballad

Yahoo Awards and TNT's John Lennon Tribute

Walk This Way — And That

Speaking of contradictions, Aerosmith is supposed to perform in New York at the Yahoo! Internet Life magazine's Online Music Awards at the Hammerstein Ballroom. It is also been reported that the supergroup will headline TNT's tribute to John Lennon at Radio City Music Hall.

Problem is, both events are scheduled for the same night, Sept. 20, and not even Steven Tyler can be in two places at once.

The easiest way out of this mess would be for the band to do neither engagement. And that's what may happen. A rep for the band told me yesterday that Aerosmith has sent its regrets to TNT. "As of now, they're doing Yahoo!" said the rep, who acknowledged that "new issues" have come up that might cause the band to back out of that commitment as well.

KLOS interview with Joe Perry

A KLOS interview with Joe aired right before 5:00 on Friday. Stuff that was said:

He was asked about all the good looking women at the Aerosmith shows... Joe said he was a one woman man and that the groupie stuff was more of Steven's thing. He was also asked the usual "how do you rock now that you're sober?" question... Perry responded that it wasn't an issue for the band anymore, because it's been so long since they stopped using. He then talked about the Stones and his appearance on Mick's upcoming solo album. He also talked about set lists, that they change things from night to night based on crowd reaction and stuff.

Cheap Trick to open 3 shows for Aerosmith

Taken from the message board at Cheaptrick.com :

Contrary to what is circulating online, we are not going on "tour" with Aerosmith. We are only playing 3 dates with them and they are:
10/9 - Vancouver,
10/11 - Calgary,
10/13 - Edmonton.
We do not have venue information at this time. I just wanted to set the record straight since people are going online stating that we are on the whole tour in the fall and that is NOT TRUE.

Bebe Buell Article

August 12, 2001

A NIGHT OUT WITH
Bebe Buell: Her Backstage Passes

By LINDA LEE

SHE'S a legend in her own book. That Abba musical "Mama Mia," about a girl with three potential dads, due to open in October? Bebe Buell already lived it, in 1977, when she had a baby girl with three potential dads: Todd Rundgren, the rocker she was living with; Steven Tyler, one of the rockers she had slept with; and Mick Jagger, who had not bedded her around the time she got pregnant but who teased her about being the real father.

The baby grew up as Liv Rundgren but changed that to Liv Tyler on learning her true paternity and is now, of course, a movie star of 24.

But this book, "Rebel Heart: An American Rock 'n' Roll Journey" (St. Martin's Press), is about Bebe.

"The only thing I was certain about was that I could lure any man I wanted into my bed," she writes. "But I could not lure any man I wanted into a stable relationship."

She tells of how Eileen Ford saw a test shot of her in 1972 and of how in quick order she became a model, a rock "muse," Miss November 1974 in Playboy, a mother, a punk rocker and finally Liv's manager.

But mostly Ms. Buell's book is about the many liaisons she recalls with rock and movie stars, including David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Rod Stewart, Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty, and is loaded with pictures to prove it. Ms. Buell asserts that she was not a groupie. Rather, she calls herself a connoisseur of rock music, an inspiration for lyrics, a companion, someone who might accidentally snort heroin when she thought it was only cocaine but who kept her feet on the ground; except, that is, when she was in bed.

On a blazing Tuesday night, Ms. Buell arrived for her publication party at Don Hill's, a SoHo rock club she says in her book is "the only place in New York I knew of that upheld some of the spirit of fabulousness" of Max's Kansas City.

First out of her town car was her shaggy-haired fiancé, Jim Wallerstein, a guitarist in the Bebe Buell Band, followed by a huge bodyguard, then Ms. Buell, 48, who was dressed in an off-the-substantial-shoulder black gown by Ghost, strappy sandals and a necklace she hopes you think is made of diamonds.

A camera team from "20/20" was waiting, along with assorted paparazzi, but the night became a gathering of old friends from the rock world like Hilly Kristal, founder of CBGB, the photographer Marcia Resnick ("I'm in the index," she said) and new friends from publishing.

"I'm going to mingle-ingle," Ms. Buell announced.

As the sound system played "Spill the wine and take that pearl," a fan handed her a huge box of Bazooka bubble gum. (After years of indulgence, she found the one drug she really needed, Zoloft, and gave up everything except Champagne.)

"I'm going to get out of this dress soon, and get into multiple personalities," Ms. Buell promised a friend.

She circled the room several times, asking Don Hill himself where the cool spots were. Literally. "I'm on a perpetual quest for air-conditioning," she said. Women of a certain age can sympathize.

Jill Brooke, the editor of Avenue magazine, said, "You almost expect Cameron Crowe to be here." Twice. (His movie "Almost Famous," about a rock groupie, er, muse, is inspired in part by Ms. Buell.)

Off Ms. Buell went to shuck her gown and put on tight black pants, a leopard thong and a long-sleeved black crop top, "so I can go crazy onstage," she said. She grabbed the mike stand, and Mr. Wallerstein adopted the perfect question mark pose with his guitar.

"I knew she could rock," said one publishing executive, "but I didn't know she could rock." Well, yes, if your idea of a rock band is Stephen King and Amy Tan, then Bebe Buell rocks. Onstage, she suggests a mix of Debbie Harry and Mae West. She's a competent musician, competent in everything she has done.

"Bring it down, boys," she said to her band, and then straddled the microphone stand and tore through her numbers, like "Normal Girl," "Cool" and "Money Machine," a song she dedicated to her publishers.

Later, under the dripping pipes in the basement, she assessed her performance: "I think you get better at everything as you get older."

Steven Tyler's Ex Seriously Ill

(08/06/01) -- Cyrinda Foxe-Tyler, Steven Tyler's first wife and mother of 22-year old daughter Mia Tyler, is seriously ill. Last March, she had a stroke and soon after was diagnosed with brain cancer.

In 1997, she wrote a tell-all book about her life with Tyler titled, Dream On. Tyler was very unhappy about her book and even threatened to sue her when she planned to publish nude pictures of him when the book was going to be released.

When Steven heard that his ex-wife was suffering, he was urged by his two daughters, Mia and Liv, to get in touch. "We had brunch at Balthazar (a New York restaurant), walked around SoHo, and did the usual Sunday stuff. It was a lot of fun with a lot of healing, " Cyrinda said. Tyler is now paying Cyrinda's medical bills and has her staying at an expensive New York hotel near the hospital where she is being treated.

She has already had one operation, but the doctors have given Cyrinda a 50/50 chance of survival after she finishes chemotherapy and radiation treatment.

Steven's ex had this to say about their reunion, "All I can say is thank you, but I don't recommend that people wait 20 years to make amends."

In other related news, Aerosmith has cancelled their August 22nd show at the Verizon Ampitheater in Irvine, to shoot a new music video. The band will perform there as scheduled on August 20th, then at the Glen Helen Blockbuster Pavilion in San Bernardino on August 24th.
