Steven Tyler Scores Free Chipotle

I'm pretty sure Steven Tyler is one of the richest musicians in the world, but hey, Chipotle gave him a year's worth of free food anyway (they even branded a burrito card for him specifically). He's a celeb and he lends cachet to the brand I suppose. Just think of all the blogs posting about this today... Chipotle definitely made a smart "advertising" move with this one!

since you brought up money...

reportedly, Richie Sambora (like the rest of bon jovi) are jon's salaried employees and he was under contract earning a base salary of 2 million/month.

This would be in addition to writing and publishing royalites. If this is true (and I suspect it is), jon is "rich"; simply for selling and hawking a dream.

so let steven tyler hawk chips...on second thought...No steve, what are you doing??? I thought you are a genuine rock star!

If Chipotle has gotten $2000 worth of publicity out of this, then it was worth it for 'em.

What'd be cool, is if Steven would actually take the time to go feed a single homeless person every day with this.

As for Jon Bongiovi, he's a joke. a shell of what was once cool. His tour is already sagging w/ empty & discounted seats without Sambora on board... I just got a notice from, offering me heavily discounted tickets to their L.A. stop for as little as $17. Still not interested.

And I'd like to add, instead of going out as a lame ass imitation of a rock band, maybe he'd be better off staying home & being a lame ass imitation of a parent. Then his spoiled idiot of a daughter might not O.D. on Heroin as often, at her pampered, out of touch college experience.

I hate Steven Tyler. Trixter,Salty Dog,Firehouse,Bon Jovi that is real rock n roll. And believe me I know what I am talking about. I am a big Killer Dwarfs fan. Hair metal it is not metal if the hair is not big. Metalboy(Where you at hairmetalboy) hair hair hair , hair hair hair, hair your booty,hair your booty. It don't rock if it ain't hair. Hair Metal is 90% hair. Hair hair hair. Only a pussy wouldn't love hair metal. Hairmetalboy I want to have sex with you. I love how you call the metal you claim to love hair metal. hair metal has nothing to do with musical ability. Hairway To Hell Hair metal it is so cool to call it hair metal.

I'm just like hairmetalboy. The only way I can feel good about myself is if I pretend like I love glam metal music but I tear it to shreds every chance I get. Calling it hair metal is the most disrespectful thing I can think of.

ace: I was taking a cue from HIM regarding bon jovi and "tuning out" when need be. My comments were not about their parenting. They were about richie not being in the band HIM points out, there is a difference between liking the band and liking the music or both.

From what I can tell, other than a few sensationalized, public headlines, they have raised their children remarkably well given the public life that they lead. I've heard Dorothea talk about raising her children (especially when they were teenagers) and when they would start to act like a pampered rockstar, she would nip the attitude in the proverbial bud and remind her kids that their dad is the rockstar; not them...and quickly bring them back to reality.

Their kids could surely be another Lindsay Lohan or worse, Amy Winehouse, but they're not. My thoughts are pretty much the same about Howard Stern- I am a huge fan, but over the past couple of years, I've been tuning out, because I just don't really like his "band" that much anymore, but I still enjoy his interviews and I stil tune into his show to hear them. And, much like the Bongiovis (but even moreso), Howard and Allyson's kids have grown up to be very well adjusted adults.

As far as the overdose(s) you mentioned, well, I simply have a different philosophy regarding the 1980's "war on drugs" than what middle America "likes" to hear, so I'l keep it at that.

KDC: take some seratonin. the war is over.

is killerdwarveschick for real? i love the killer dwarves and GLAM metal. but slayer fuckin rules!!

Slayer sucks save for their Rick Rubin produced Iron Butterfly cover of "Ina Gawda Da Vida".

How do you know it's good? Because the band despises it.

Gee, I wonder why that is? Because it compositionally overshadows their original material.
