During "Train Kept A-Rollin'", Steven shouted out for former Portland, Maine resident Bebe Buell to join him onstage. Steven Tyler and Bebe Buell are of course Mom and Dad to Maine-raised film star, Liv Tyler.
Happy 66th Birthday to the quiet rock genius of Aerosmith, guitarist Brad Whitford! He was born February 23, 1952 in Winchester, Massachusetts. It's also pretty freakin' cool that I share my arrival on the planet with him...15 years later.
When Aerosmith came to Portland on December 6, 1979, Steven Tyler passed out onstage which brought the show to a halt. It was a Thursday night in front of a sold-out crowd at the Cumberland County Civic Center.
This weekend, we remember one of the last shows of the Seventies with the original line-up of Aerosmith and a show without Brad Whitford and Joe Perry. Both were on a November 19th at the Civic Center. Sadly, heavy drug use and bad vibes seemed to dominate this period.
