Aerosmith rock legend Steven Tyler reveals a lot if you ask him. Especially if the you who’s asking is King of All Media Howard Stern. Stern and Tyler go way back — they’ve been professional pals through Tyler’s various blown fortunes and multiple rehabs. One might easily think Tyler has little left to reveal, having already told how he lost his money, his mind (a couple of times) and his virginity (age 16, prostitute). But then you tune in to Howard’s show this week and find nuggets — you might say treasures — from a new Steven Tyler interview.
It’s helpful to remember that Tyler is more than a rock star. He’s a musical artist and chameleon. (His latest effort is a solo country album he recorded in Nashville — RED, WHITE & YOU.) So what influences Tyler, how does he stay current without losing his rock roots? Fellow rock legend Tom Petty helps out, Tyler says. Tyler revealed to Stern that the show he likes most is Petty’s remarkable ‘Buried Treasure‘ hour on SiriusXM. If you want to know what vintage rock stars love and listen to, this is your treasure map.
