AEROSMITH Frontman 'Livin' On The Edge'

January 10, 2009

Elle recently conducted an interview with AEROSMITH frontman Steven Tyler. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.

Elle: What can you tell me about your first sexual experience?

Steven Tyler: It was at the age of seven with twins.

Elle: Where does a boy go to find naughty prepubescent twins?

Steven Tyler: They sat next to me in the church choir. They were French.

Elle: At that age, I can't imagine you got the full ménage à trois.

Steven Tyler: They took me home one day, and we had a you-show-me-yours-I'll-show-you-mine session. Isn't that great? You know, I look at their pictures now and think to myself, How much sweeter does it get? And isn't it crazy that my ex-wife Teresa was a twin and my girlfriend now is a twin?

Elle: So in your marriage to Teresa, was there ever any serious talk of bringing the other twin into the bedroom?

Steven Tyler: I asked her for years and I got so smacked down.

Elle: Over the years, your relationship with AEROSMITH's guitarist Joe Perry has been more contentious than many bad marriages, but you still play together. How do you manage that relationship?

Steven Tyler: There's that famous saying, "This thing is bigger than both of us." Some guys will have terrible feelings about an ex-wife they had a child with, but after giving birth to something so beautiful, how can you hate that person? We've given birth to those songs.

Elle: Has any female celebrity ever shunned your advances?

Steven Tyler: Never. I'm a persistent motherfucker. I'm very sensual and very rhythm-oriented and into poetry. Women can feel that.

Elle: Tell me a story of public humiliation that involves a woman.

Steven Tyler: I can't really think about anything other than things I really don't want to talk about — like divorces, or my girlfriend, Erin, getting in a fight in a club defending my honor, and then people saying she got me on drugs, which is the furthest thing from the truth. That's the press for you.

Elle: How exactly did your girlfriend defend your honor?

Steven Tyler: A girl was sitting on my lap too long, and my girlfriend just threw her off. It turned into a brawl.

Elle: But the question remains: Why was this girl sitting in your lap for so long?

Steven Tyler: That might have been my fault.
