Aerosmith’s Concert in Namma Bengalooru!

There I was having a peaceful Saturday afternoon nap when the fateful call came. I simply had to pay heed, Period. The rest, as they say, is history. Certainly, Aerosmith’s visit here established Bangalore as the ROCK CAPITAL OF INDIA and the place rock & rollers simply have to play in. No doubt about it. Here are some pics for your enjoyment. I also have a video that will be uploaded later.











This being a true rock concert, there were no giddy teenyboppers fainting at the sight of Tyler though it came close to that point, when the man dropped his jeans a wee bit to show a tattoo on his navel that read ‘Lick me’! Still, the organisers & Sanjeevini ( bless these guys! ) were prepared for any eventuality.



I have a couple of good memories of the concert. Most memorable was the time when Joe Perry drew maximum applause when he said that Aerosmith has much to thank India for, amongst all things, the Kamasutra. Apparently, they follow this great tome to the T! Again, I enjoyed myself jumping up and down when Aerosmith played their classic ” Something’s wrong with the world today!” ; thankfully, I didn’t hurt myself ‘Crazy’ with their other number – “Falling in love is hard on the knees!”. The other observation was the fact that Bangalore has got a huge population of rock music fans – the way they barged into the entrance reminded me of that phrase “crawling out of the woodwork!” With this crowd, there are no inhibitions – revealling dresses, revelling themselves on a high, thanks to grass & enjoying themselves is simply a way to be!

    umm… i think that song’s called livin’ on the edge.

    in english songs, the name of the song isn’t always the first line. it’s usually taken from the refrain.

    exceptions do exist. this isn’t one of them.
