Steven Tyler, frontman and lead vocals of Boston-based rock band Aerosmith, sang “God Bless America” during at the Boston RedSox opening Sunday evening.
Stephen Victor Tallarico in real life, father of Liv Tyler, had faced life’s tough and hard setbacks but still emerged as a fighter.
For the past four years, this rocker underwent a lot of things. From throat surgery and a kiss back to fame, admitted to a rehab center, multiple leg surgeries gone Tyler — whose band hails from Boston — has had throat surgery, pursued a solo career– uncertain whether the move was good and indefinite, addiction to painkillers, death of his beloved mother Susan Ray Tallarico…Tough!
On Sunday, Tyler, on the field of Fenway Park with 21-year-old daughter Chelsea, gave the patriotic song an appropriate rock ‘n roll twist, nailing high notes in the open-throated style that made hits out of songs like “Love in Elevator” and “Walk this Way.”
