Chance Encounters with Aerosmith

Nicole, 33

I used to work in cosmetics, and one Friday night when I was working, I looked up to see Steven Tyler, his wife and his daughter, who was 3 at the time, at my counter. I was blown away. He came to purchase a product from the line I represented, and after asking some questions, I found out he was using the product wrong. I proceeded to tell him how to use it properly, and I am NOT exaggerating when I tell you that he was so polite, and listened to me so intently; by looking in his eyes, I almost felt like he was looking in my soul. I have helped other celebrities since then, but no one ever treated me with the same kind of respect he did. My friend, a girl I used to work with, begged him for a picture, and he waited about 10 minutes for her to run to her car for her camera. When she finally came back, he grabbed me and pulled me in the photo with him. He was such an amazing spirit, and just a totally down to earth guy, he just made you feel good to be around him. No matter how many people came up to him that night for an autograph, he was a total gentleman and signed them all. I have to laugh because I remember that he had his daughter dressed in black leather pants and I couldn't even believe that they made leather pants for little children. He didn't act the part of a "rock star" at all, just a really cool person who treated me with respect. What makes Aerosmith so great in general is that they never forgot their roots (in Boston) or the people. They truly are genuine stars. And yes, 12 years later I still do have that photograph of me and Steve Tyler!
