Okay, I know I have a snark gene, but I'm totally willing to give credit where credit is due. Steven Tyler (yes, that Steven Tyler) has totally surprised me with his new video "If Love is Your Name." I quickly tire of all the efforts of established musicians aimed at re-invention. That may not even be what is going on here with this half of the Toxic Twins.
Truth be told, he doesn't look half bad in this video. I've seen some pictures of him lately that looked a little Keith-Richards-ish. He truly needs someone giving him the once-over before he goes out. Maybe it is time to put away the eyeliner, too, Steven. I'm just sayin'...
In your defense, your dental work is excellent. That bad fall in South America didn't set you back, grin wise. Let me offer an empathetic "ouch," however late that may be.
Most surprising fact? A country vibe for the front man of Aerosmith. Check! That's pretty amazing.
I'd like to hear my peeps chime in. What do you think of the new video?
[Note to Steven: The gal in the video? Love isn't her name...it's "granddaughter."]
