Steven Tyler Adds Rhythm To Street Musician’s Performance

CENTURY CITY, CA - MAY 02: Singer/songwriter Steven Tyler performs onstage during the 21st annual Race to Erase MS at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza on May 2, 2014 in Century City, California.
Imagine you’re a busker on the streets of Helsinki, Finland.  You’re minding your own business, trying to earn a couple of bucks, when all of a sudden Steven Tyler shows up and wants to play along with you.

While this scenario seems too good to be true, it actually happened this past weekend.

Apparently, Tyler was wandering the streets of Helsinki during some down-time on Aerosmith’s European tour and felt so inspired by the local street performers that he just up and joined them.  Check out this video below of Tyler clapping along with a fiddler.

While that fan video was cool, the video below, which showed up on Tyler’s Facebook page, shows the animated frontman clearly having a blast playing an elaborate bottle percussion set-up.  Seriously, look at him.  Have you ever seen a toddler play around with one of those Fisher Price xylophones?  That’s what he looks like...just a little more corrodinated.
