Aerosmith’s Steve Tyler Hits The Speaker Circuit


Steven Tyler is doing the rounds as a lecturer.

The Aerosmith frontman recently addressed students at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and this Friday speaks to attendants at the Radio and Records Convention this Friday in Los Angeles.

Tyler, whose first album was released before the students were born told the Boston crowd “Don’t forget it’s a dream. I pretended I was someone else until that someone became me, and that’s the beauty of it all. I’m 54, the band is no spring chicken, we been out forever. You never know when it’s going to be over, but I have this passion and I don’t care.”

The Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler will discuss his career and his perspectives on the industry in a general session at the Radio and Records Convention at the Beverly Hilton in LA later this week.

Tyler joined his first rock band when he was still in his teens, and Aerosmith released their first album on Columbia in January of 1973. The single “Dream On” was the Song of the Year at two of the group’s hometown radio stations, WVBF & WBCN/Boston.

At the R&R session, which will be moderated by Rolling Stone magazine’s David Wild, Tyler will debut the studio tracks from Aerosmith’s forthcoming album and play the band’s latest video.
