Steven Tyler: As Cool As You Think He Is
Rock legend Steven Tyler is in Berlin on his “Let Rock Rule - World Tour 2014” with his band Aerosmith (www.aerosmith.com). The big concert was Monday night. But on Sunday, he had time to kill at a beer garden, Cafe am Neuen See (cafeamneunsee.de).
And so did I.
I had just arrived for the German-American journalists exchange fellowship, organized by the RIAS Berlin Kommission. For dinner, I was meeting up with my friend and fellow journalist Shikha Dalmia, a columnist for Reason magazine.
So there we were at the beer garden, and next to us was Tyler…and one thing led to another. We started talking, posing for photos, laughing…He said he loves NPR! Shikha took this photo of me and my new buddy.
In case you are wondering: he is indeed SUPER COOL! Really a sweetheart. I want to try out for his band, but I suspect my singing voice would not get his vote to move on to the next round.
