Aerosmith's Steven Tyler jams with Helsinki buskers
Sure he's a rock 'n' roll icon fronting a band that's sold more than 150 million albums worldwide, but Aerosmith's Steven Tyler can also appreciate the simple things in life — like the buskers of Helsinki.
A few videos posted by passersby this weekend captured the American rock star and former Idol judge absolutely delighted with the street musicians he encounters during a few afternoon jaunts while in the Finnish capital to perform.
In one instance, shown above, Tyler samples the glass-bottle, bamboo and rope xylophone created by a popular busker who is apparently a regular in the centre of Helsinki. And no wimping out for Tyler during the impromptu show: as the rocker launches into Aerosmith's hit power ballad Dream On, he giggles occasionally at his flubs.
Tyler, who shared one fan's video of his performance on his Facebook page, offered this tongue-in-cheek caption: "Hitting the bottle hard in Helsinki."
Another individual captured the rock veteran clapping and stomping along with a busker on a fiddle.
Though his appearance attracted a handful of Finns to Walk This Way — a handful stopped to watch, snap photos or capture some video — most simply passed right by.
