Aerosmith show in Tupelo MS canceled Singer Steven Tyler scheduled for additional knee surgery in early 99 January s Aerosmith show that was announced last week will not go on sale tomorrow Saturday October 24 as originally planned as the band s schedule has had to be changed to allow singer Steven Tyler to go back in for additional knee surgery Following an anterior cruciate ligament injury in late April of this year Tyler was admitted to the hospital for reconstructive surgery on his leg After four months of rehabilitation to his knee the band returned to the road making up US summer dates that had been postponed Unfortunately doctors have now confirmed that Tyler obviously went out before the knee was fully healed and that if her continues past the end of the year the repeated performances will cause further serious damage All dates for 1998 will remain unchanged Future dates for next year will be announced shortly Tom Hamilton might know of this site When Andrew Buckingham met Aerosmith in Quebec City two nights ago The 22nd He gave a note to Tom Hamilton with my URL and Tom said he would look at my site Now is that Cool or what Aerosmith Trivia Contest at Playboy Online There s an Aerosmith Trivia Contest For 18 year olds US Only at Playboy Online They are giving away a DW Drumset a Joe Perry signature Les Paul a ton of Zildjian stuff Hoener harmonicas and autographed CDs All you have to do is answer four Aerosmith trivia questions http www playboy com pop music 4 html Cybersleaze gossip column The following posts were in the Metaverse Cybersleaze gossip column for today LIV TYLER AND JOAQUIN PHOENIX CALL IT QUITS Leading indie acting queen LIV TYLER and longtime beau JOAQUIN PHOENIX have reportedly called it quits on their relationship after three years Apparently Tyler who is the daughter of AEROSMITH frontman STEVEN TYLER dumped her longtime love to start dating English rocker ROYSTON LANGDON who is or should we say WAS one of Phoenix s friends Langston who I can confirm is quite a hottie is a member of the NYC based band glam rock band SPACEHOG Langston and Tyler have recently been spotted getting cuddly in some of the more dimly lit New York nightspots The two probably met when Tyler and Phoenix went on a road trip with some of the members of the band Ironically Joaquin recently went on the DAVID LETTERMAN SHOW and spent the entire time talking about his good friends in SPACEHOG and the fantastic road trip they had all just taken together Doh No wonder he refused to tell Dave anything about his relationship with Liv when Dave asked him Meanwhile Tyler s family doesn t seem to be too upset about the latest turn of events Tyler s mother BEBE BUELL confirmed the couple s split recently and added that she was pretty pleased that her daughter and Phoenix had parted ways Apparently the actor who is the brother of the late RIVER PHOENIX was considered by Momma to be a bit quirky and perhaps not the most reliable of boyfriends for her daughter However we should probably caution Liv s momma that we have partied hearty with the Spacehog boys and can confirm that reliability is not really Royston s middle name either But then again Buell knows all about what it is like to date a rocker Aside from her Liv producing affair with Steven Tyler she also had flings with ELVIS COSTELLO and TODD RUNDGREN SPEAKING OF THE TYLER CLAN While we are gossiping about his daughter we should probably give poppa Tyler his props as well Although he is certainly getting a tad long in the tooth he and da boyz have packed their Grecian Formula and are back on tour as we speak In fact a Sleaze fan recently wrote in to rave about their latest NYC performance While I tend to think that Tyler and Co are a bit past their prime apparently they still know how to put on a fabulous show Sleaze fan Mick wrote in with the following observations I just thought you might like to know about an Aerosmith Concert that I attended at the Jones Beach Amphitheater in New York on Thursday night The place was completely sold out despite the fact that the venue was outdoors and the weather was freezing You had the usual crowd that you expect to see at an Aerosmith concert aging hipsters and teenagers The opening band was FUEL and they were pretty good but could not compare to Aerosmith Despite the wearing of a knee brace STEVEN TYLER can still definitely dance and jump around on stage for nearly two hours straight I also have to say that JOE PERRY has replaced SLASH with a god like persona The guy is incredible but his choice of facial hair a patch on each side of his lips must go Anyway the boys played most of their old stuff including SWEET EMOTION which led in to a great rendition of LED ZEPPELIN s classic song HEARTBREAKER The concert was incredible and TYLER and the boys can still rock Ok Mick We still think that stupid ARMAGEDDON song was utter cheese but SWEET EMOTION rocks and DREAM ON still gets me every time Not to mention of course their brilliant pairing with RUN DMC for WALK THIS WAY So I ll give ya the benefit of the doubt on this one News as of October 23 1998 Kerrang The October edition of Kerrang has Mr Tyler and Perry on the front cover See http welcome to the aerozone click on magazines Inside there is a 4 page article with some new good pics Amongst all the things they talk about

little South of Sanity in Yesterday s Boston Globe October 16th AEROSMITH ROCKS BACK WITH LIVE CD Aerosmith has evoked both praise and criticism for the slickness of its recent hit I Don t Want To Miss A Thing a Diane Warren penned tune from the Armaggedon soundtrack that became the band s first No 1 song But no such argument should accompany Aerosmith s new twin CD live set A Little South of Sanity which rocks as hard as any live record in memory Forget the slickness This is a real live record says Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer on the phone from New York It s the band playing live on stage and there s not going back into the studio and redoing stuff and making it sound all pretty It s the band on stage mistakes and all What you hear is what you get And what you hear is excellent even by Aerosmith s lofty stage standards The recordings are taken from various shows from Boston s FleetCenter to venues across the world during the band s Nine Lives and Get a Grip tours of the last five years The album is really up to date says Kramer who returns with his mates to the FleetCenter Dec 31 and the Worcester Centrum Centre Jan 2 There might be four or five songs from the Get a Grip tour but the rest of it is all from Nine Lives The new live set which comes out Tuesday follows the general song list of Aerosmith s latter year shows starting with a whomping Steven Tyler Joe Perry driven Eat the Rich Tyler also launches wild screams on the drug exorcising Money on My Back and in another feverish moment dedicates Mama Kin to the Boston club the band owns by that name To the people that go to Mama Kin and work at Mama Kin and hang at Mama Kin Tyler shouts The live set actually represents a contractual obligation to Aerosmith s former label Geffen Records Aerosmith switched to Sony for the last studio album Nine Lives but as part of the negotation to leave Geffen the band promised Geffen a live set that would include the first two singles from the Sony deal I think they re going to be a little sorry they let us go Kramer says of Geffen The band could have put out a lackluster disc as many bands do when they re leaving a label but Aerosmith made a heightened return to rock n roll That was supplied in part by the reappearance of the band s former producer Jack Douglas who mixed the new record We had a lot of fun with Jack back in the old days says Kramer And it was a good idea to have him mix the live stuff because if there s anybody who knows how the band is supposed to sound it s Jack Indeed Aerosmith seems to be firing on all cylinders these days Tyler is back in the saddle after injuring his knee this summer with a twirling microphone And Kramer is back after suffering second degree burns when his Ferrari caught fire at a Scituate gas station Kramer contends the automatic shut off valve at the pump failed to work though he does acknowledge that he failed to turn off the engine before it shot up in flames and destroyed the car It was a hard way to get the summer off but it kind of refreshed everybody says Kramer As for the recent hit single which went from idea to conception in just 10 days Aerosmith doesn t mind taking heat for it from core fans Well I guess enough people like it if it became a No 1 song say Kramer And because if the hit single our shows have been pretty much sold out As for Kramer s burns They ve healed up very well and I ve got no scars he says As for future plans he adds that Aerosmith will start writing another record in the spring then maybe release it next fall But we re going to pretty much stay on the road for a while now he notes We re going to stay out there and pound the boards a bit Story by Steve Morse Globe Staff News as of October 16 1998 Our Lady Peace next opening act As

Aerosmith were one of the most popular hard rock groups of the 70s and have enjoyed a creative and popular resurgence since the mid 80s Perry met singer Steven Tyler in an ice cream parlor and they decided to form a band with bassist Tom Hamilton with whom Perry had played in the Jam Band After adding guitarist Brad Whitford and drummer Joey Kramer the band gigged around Boston and named themselves Aerosmith in 1970 Clive Davis now head of Arista Records signed Aerosmith to Columbia in 1972 On their eponymous 1973 debut album Aerosmith created the mold for the 70 s power ballad with their classic Dream On Get Your Wings 1974 spent 86 weeks on the Billboard album chart as Aerosmith relentlessly toured the U S 1975 s Toys In The Attic filled with spare riffs and sexual double

start of collaborations with outside songwriters such as Holly Knight and Desmond Child The results were such smashes as Dude Looks Like a Lady and Rag Doll beginning one of the greatest comebacks in rock history Pump was even more popular selling four million copies and spawning top 10s such as Love in an Elevator Debuting at 1 Get a Grip 1993 sounded much like its two predecessors Switching back

two daughters Kristen 6 and Sarah 4 all of Modesto News as of August 15 1998 Steven Tyler Story Read on if you want to read a story that shows that Steven Tyler really do have a heart of gold from a local Mass newspaper By Mia Taylor The Patriot Ledger BRAINTREE Cristyn Alfano s spirits passed cloud nine weeks ago Tuesday the 12 year old said she was on cloud 60 It s been a magical summer for Cristyn who suffers from chronic renal failure is legally blind and soon must undergo two operations one to install a catheter in her abdomen the other to transplant her two failing kidneys The telephone doesn t often ring for Cristyn because children her age tend to shy away Cristyn has only peripheral vision and must walk with a long red white and blue cane leading the way But recently the phone in family s Cleveland Avenue apartment began ringing off the hook First it was Aerosmith s lead singer Stephen Tyler Then came the news about the shopping spree Not many 12 year olds go on daylong shopping excursions with a chauffeur in tow But Tuesday as the saying goes Cristyn shopped until she dropped This is better than Christmas Cristyn announced Tuesday afternoon as she sat surveying items from Filene s Bath and Body Works JC Penny and Claire s that were spread across the living room floor Her new bird Taj named after one of Stephen Tyler s daughters squawked in the background It was a long day for Cristyn who began shopping shortly after 9 a m paused around noon for pizza making at Al s Pizza in Plymouth and then continued long into the evening In fact it s been a whirlwind month for Cristyn that began with a phone call from Tyler Cristyn said she grew up listening to Aerosmith with her mother Caryn and older brother Michael Because her vision has declined since she was 4 years old music was one of the few things the family could share A framed picture of Tyler is on a shelf behind the head of her bed She knows the band s songs by heart The VCR in the living room sits ready with a recording of Aerosmith s latest video I Don t Want to Miss a Thing from the movie Armageddon Cristyn wanted Tyler to sing for her on her birthday which was June 21 Caryn Alfano a single mother contacted Tyler on a whim not knowing what to expect On June 22 he called My mom was like Hello and he said This is Stephen Tyler Is Cristyn there Cristyn recalled So I said hello and he s like Happy birthday After a 10 minute conversation Tyler who lives in Marshfield told Cristyn his limousine was headed for the Hilltop Restaurant in Braintree just a few blocks from her apartment Tyler asked Cristyn to meet him there The meeting lasted about an hour Tyler gave Cristyn three of the bracelets he wore in the Armageddon video and talked to her about a recent leg injury he suffered The dream come true ended with a hug He hugged me so tight I couldn t breathe for a minute Cristyn said Then I ran home and turned on MTV so I could see his new video Cristyn often replays the video pausing it during the close ups so she can see Tyler wearing the bracelets he gave her The meeting Cristyn admitted shyly made her feel truly special Her good fortune didn t end there Because of Cristyn s medical condition Caryn needs to stay home full time during the summer to take care of her daughter Money is sometimes short which means Caryn often has to buy clothing on sale which is not always what appeals to Cristyn Around the same time Tyler called the Make A Wish Foundation called to tell Cristyn they would grant a wish of hers The foundation is dedicated to granting the wishes of children between 2 and 18 who have been diagnosed with life threatening illnesses The goal is to help children forget about their illnesses at least for a short time Make A Wish spokeswoman Amy Haelsen said We laid in bed at night for days going through everything we could request Caryn said We lived out all her fantasies Cristyn s wish list included a trip to the Bahamas or New York City and a pool table for the apartment She also considered a week in the mountains of Lincoln N H a place she her mother and brother used to visit Finally I told her whatever you wish make it something you ll always have and something we couldn t do ourselves Caryn said So a shopping spree it was Cristyn spent all day Tuesday at Independence Mall She was driven around in a limousine donated by Kerri Limousine of Quincy and in the evening after stopping home for dinner Cristyn headed back to the mall to use more of the gift certificates supplied by Make A Wish The biggest surprise of the day was a stop at Cheryl s Parrot Place in Plymouth where Cristyn was allowed to pick out a bird to take home Tuesday night Cristyn told her mother she had the best day of her life And this summer has been the best summer of Cristyn s life Caryn said Copyright 1998 Patriot Ledger8 12 98 4 41 PM Tour Dates and More If you want to read some news on the upcoming Tour the new Live Album and

gas station on Wednesday read the articles from these news papers Boston Herald Friday July 17 1998 Aerosmith star injured as car bursts into flames By Lauren Beckham Falcone Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer thanked a guardian angel for helping him escape death after his Ferrari burst into flames at a Scituate gas station early Wednesday night Definitely somebody is looking out for me up there and I m grateful to him he told reporters yesterday Kramer 48 who lives in Marshfield was sitting in his 1998 Ferrari 355 at Scarsilloni s Sunoco on Route 3A in Scituate about 6 p m when the car sudde nly erupted into flames From the time I pulled up to the pump to the time of the fire was only about 10 seconds he said I was sitting in my car I looked down into my wallet to get my credit card I looked up and the car was engulfed in flames My only thought was to get out he said The musician leaped out of the blazing sportscar but not before fire singed his hair face arm and legs A quick thinking 16 year old gas attendant pulled him away from the burning vehicle The only way I could get out was through the flames said Kramer who was treated for second degree burns at South Shore Hospital in Weymouth Wednesday night and later released His left arm from hand to elbow is swollen and bandaged as well as his lower right leg and most of his left leg My left arm got burned because I put it up to protect my head I can t really move those fingers right now The bandages have to be changed twice a day other than that all I can do is wait to see how I heal he said Aerosmith spokeswomen Luke Burland said the drummer was doing well and the show will go on meaning the injuries won t hinder the re start of the band s Nine Lives tour starting in Raleigh N C Aug 14 I don t think there will be any change in plan as far at the tour schedule if anything it will only be pushed back a week The doctors will be able to give me a better idea in about a week when the swelling goes down and they can see how well the burns are healing This band s been though so much shit it s going to take more than this to bring us down he said They re scheduled to play at Great Woods in Mansfield Aug 20 No foul play is suspected but the state fire marshal s office is investigating how gas pooled under the car and what caused it to ignite Roger Andrey owner of Gaston Andrey Ferrari of Boston said Ferrari has had trouble with car fuel lines in the past but it was premature to make any kind of conclusion about what happened The cars are fabulous he said They really are very good cars Thank God he wasn t hurt too badly Kramer said Yes I went to church a few days ago No I was not smoking in the car I don t smoke I m definitely going to look into why my car caught fire You don t expect a one hundred fifty thousand dollar car to burst into flames If they re at fault Ferrari will be hearing from me Also I want to get the word out to people that in Massachusetts Full Serve Pumps are not required to have a foam extinguishing system Only Self Serve Pumps do and that needs to be changed I ll be looking into ways of getting those laws changed When asked if he was going to get another Ferrari he said Well I ve had four and they ve all ended up pretty much like this one I guess the writing s on the wall about that Kramer isn t the only injured member of Aerosmith Singer Steven Tyler recently underwent knee surgery after he whacked his knee with a microphone stand during a concert in Alaska photo of burned car with caption Tom McKay owner of 3A Towing in Cohasset looks over Aerosmith

plastic etc were incinerated Boston Globe Friday July 17 1998 Gasoline leak eyed in car fire that injured Aerosmith s drummer By Stephen Kiehl Globe correspondent The investigation into the cause of a car fire that injured Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer in Scituate Wednesday night focused yesterday on a pool of gasoline that witnesses saw underneath the car before the fire how it got there and how it was ignited Kramer 46 suffered second degree burns on his left arm and minor burns on his legs He was pulled from his burning 1998 Ferrari by an attendant at Scarsillino s Sunoco on Route 3A Kramer was sitting in the driver s seat when the flames engulfed the car He was released after treatment at South Shore Hospital in Weymouth Kramer could not be reached for comment yesterday The gasoline may have leaked from a ruptured fuel line or a faulty gasoline pump said fire officials The tip of the nozzle of the gasoline hose snapped off inside the fuel tank of Kramer s Ferrari The fumes from the pool of gasoline may have been ignited by the intense 1 500 degree heat generated by the car s catalytic converters authorities said Investigators also said yesterday that the car was running while the gasoline tank was being filled which is illegal and increases the chance of fire The engine in the Ferrari is in the middle of the car near the gasoline tank If the fuel line had lost its integrity and the product leaking our of the fuel line puddled underneath the car and came in contact with hot engine parts there is the potential of fire said Scituate Deputy Fire Chief Charles Curran The fire which produced flames that reached 15 feet destroyed the car and damaged a gasoline pump The owner of the station Gerald Gorman said the pump was in good condition and that it had serviced thousands of cars without incident Making sure that a motorist shuts off his car engine while fueling is the responsibility of a gasoline station owner Gorman said he did not know whether the Ferrari s engine was running when it was being fueled Investigators said they have not decided whether to press the issue An Aerosmith spokeswoman said Kramer is resting at his home in Marshfield Hills with his wife An Aerosmith tour will go forward as scheduled later this summer including an Aug 20 show at Great Woods Also check out the pics from some TV news on the accident on my Joey Kramer

Midnight Special Correction I m sorry I wrote that the The Midnight Special starts at 2 30 P M The REAL time is on Friday night July 17th 1998 at 2 30 A M Eastern US time The reason tvguide com lists The Midnight Special on 1 00 A M is because VH 1 now shows 4 episodes of The Midnight Special beginning at 1 00 A M and lasting until 3 00 They are all half hour shows and Aerosmith s is the forth No Single Sony has taken the I Don t Want To Miss A Thing single off ALL of it s release schedules So I guess it will never be released Aerosmith on Jeopardy There was another Aerosmith related Jeopardy question last night The catergory was 5 10 Femmes and the answer question thing was She is 5 10 and straight as an Aerosmith She is also one of them The answer was Liv Tyler maybe someone on the show
