Aerosmith’s Peace Emotion


Posted February 8, 2007 - By Frank Meyer

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler joined actor Joaquin Phoenix, U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) and other members of Congress at Lisner Auditorium in Washington D.C. Monday night to lobby for the creation of a Department of Peace.

In front of a crowd of 200 people, Tyler, who was accompanied by pianist and guitarist Russ Irwin, sang three of his hit songs including "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing," "Pink," and "Dream On." 

Tyler explained how Peace Alliance Founder and Chair Marianne Williamson convinced him to perform at the event.

"I get a call from Marianne and she tells me what she is doing," said Tyler, who was vacationing in Maui when he got the call. "She said, 'The road with no obstacles probably leads to nowhere.' That was the end of my vacation."

The star-studded event was the culmination of three days of lobbying by the Peace Alliance for "808," a bill sponsored by Kucinich that calls for the creation of a Department of Peace that would advise the president on peaceful solutions to domestic and international violence.

I can’t think of a joke to go with this one…anyone got any ideas?
