Steven Tyler Joins Russian Street Musician for ‘I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing’ [Watch]
Steven Tyler is always ready to sing at the drop of a hat, no matter where he is or what's going on around him, which worked in one Russian street performer’s favor over the weekend. A video surfaced on Friday (Sept. 4) showing Tyler and an unnamed street musician performing Aerosmith’s hit "I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing" together, but nothing leading up to the moment is captured in the clip.
Somehow, Tyler must have stumbled upon the musician singing his tune and joined in, and what results is a delightful display of a megastar graciously singing alongside a regular guy on a street corner in Moscow. The rocker-turned-country singer, who is dressed in his trademark rockstar garb, even throws in some harmonies, letting the performer take the melody on some parts as the crowd that had gathered cheers excitedly for the impromptu performance.
Tyler has recently forayed into the country genre for a solo project and is gaining momentum quickly. His first single, titled "Love Is Your Name," was a surprising change of pace for the artist, who is usually serving as the frontman in a legendary rock band, but seems to fit his style and voice well. The song has reached No. 19 on the Billboard Hot Country chart. After touring with Aerosmith this summer, Tyler had plans to finish his country record, but no news yet on when it will be complete.
