Aeroesmith Headlines “Boston Strong” Benefit Concert

MAY 31, 2013 – Aerosmith, who was blogged about recently by JTMP for showing support for the whale-protecting organization Sea Shepherd, headlined the "Boston Strong" benefit concert to raise money for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. Along with the bad boys from Boston were the Dropkick Murphys, New Kids on the Block, and one of my all-time favorite bands, Boston. Boston opened up with "More Than a Feeling" and the crowd went wild. A bombing victim, Jeff Bauman, who lost both his legs in the tragedy was there, and was flashed on the big projection screen shown smiling and "Boston Strong". Aerosmith played their classics like "Walk this Way" and "Sweet Emotion", and the Dropkick Murphys played 3 songs from their new EP "Rose Tattoo" (featuring Bruce Springsteen) that also benefits the Boston Marathon bombing victims. The J. Geils Band, James Taylor, Carole King, Jason Aldean, Boyz 2 Men and others also performed and sang. The concert proceeds will go to One Fund Boston

Aerosmith’s Steve Tyler and Joe Perry hang out with Sea Shepherd!

MAY 1, 2013 – Joe Perry and Steven Tyler from Aerosmith spent the day with the crew of my heroes, the Sea Shepherd crew. They were joined by their band historian John, and got a tour of all 3 ships. The Sea Shepherd society battles illegal whaling by the Japanese, and also battle other people who kill whales senselessly and needlessly such as Faroe Island (or the Ferocious Island as we call it) who murder whales in cold blood in a sick hunt. They put their lives on the line to protect whales and all sorts of other marine life, and their exploits can be seen on TV on one of my favorite shows, Whale Wars on Animal Planet.
