14. Steven Tyler
Aerosmith

Oakland Coliseum, California 1985

Does anything epitomize rock 'n' roll more than Steven Tyler screaming "Walk This Way" into a scarf-draped microphone? This was the group's comeback tour with the original line-up back in place. And I'd known all about it before anyone else! A few months earlier I'd been in New York, thumbing through a friend's record collection. "Aerosmith...you don't hear much about them anymore, do you?" I'd mused. One call to Lieber Krebs Management later and an interview with Steven was arranged. I should perhaps mention that this had more to do with lucky timing than my importance as a music journalist. Steven was thrilled to be back with Joe Perry and he wanted to tell Aerosmith fans the news - I just happened to be the first to call.
