Tell us about your most memorable Aerosmith moment.
Edmonton, September 14, 2010...At the meet and greet with Steven and Joe, I asked Steven and Joe if they could play Chip Away the Stone...I told them how my wife didn't go for me right away, that she really made me work for it, and that I almost gave up trying, and that the only thing that kept me going was listening to Chip Away hundreds of times, just over and over, "I won't stop until your love is my very own..." Steven and Joe both agreed to do it, and when they came out for the encore, Steven told my story to 10,000 witnesses at Rexall Place, and pointed me out (in my front row seats) to the crowd, and then played the BEST rendition I've ever heard them do...video to prove it on my youtube channel! (tizzower). During the song, he even points to me and gives me the "Love you" sign (right after giving somebody else the finger!)
Give us your funniest Aerosmith story.
I won the Guitar Hero Aerosmith contest for Edmonton, and then they canceled a week before the show when Steven fell in Sturgis...It was the second time I'd won an Aerosmith contest to get tickets and passes that had been canceled, and since that bummed me right out, I've been "banned" by my family from trying to win tickets or passes since whenever I win, the show doesn't happen...(they love Aerosmith too...)
Give us your favorite Aerosmith lyric or quote (one liner).
"Anything worth doing is worth overdoing" - Steven Tyler
Tell us about yourself…
I'm a music teacher who 24 years ago picked up an electric guitar because of Joe Perry and now I teach kids how to play songs by the greatest band in the world...I'm also a mobile DJ on the weekends and my family and I LOVE Aerosmith.

Your words of wisdom...
Never give up...as the man says, "Dream on, dream until your dreams come true..." Mine did when I finally met Steven and Joe!
