WASHINGTON, March 27, 2014 – Steven Tyler brought the boys from Boston to DC to lobby hill denziens for increased copyright protections for artists prior telling the Washington Post that he just wants to be a passionate voice in Washington for songwriters — not just the “rich rock stars” like him. The rocker turned 66 on Wednesday, March 26.

“Hopefully, I can touch them, like a modern-day Will Rogers,” he says, evoking the folksy actor-turned advocate of the 1920s and ’30s. “He’d stand up and speak and everyone would listen.”

I have been following Aerosmith for years – from Boston Bad Boys garage band to today’s elder statesmen of rock and roll. Digging through the film negatives, I have found these images. They are from twenty or so year old negatives so grainier than we expect in the computer digital age; but fun nontheless. Nine Lives tour images have never before been published.
