Week of 5/8: Susan C.
When did you first hear Aerosmith?
The first time I ever heard Aerosmith was at the Ingham County Fairgrounds in Mason, Michigan. I was a young baton twirler at a performance, checking out the teenage girls wearing their hot glitter suits, cool boots and gloves. I couldn't wait to wear the outfits that had slits up high on the thigh and move and shake like the older girls were! Then all of a sudden over the speakers came this cool guitar sound as all the older twirlers lined up in a formation. The crowd went wild clapping to this song that just came out on the radio days before and the girls started dancing to "WALK THIS WAY!" ...I had goose bumps- wishing I could be out there on the dirt track with them.
What's your favorite Aerosmith Song?
My favorite Aerosmith song is "Walk'n the Dog"
Tell us about your most memorable Aerosmith moment.
My most memorable Aerosmith moment was when I was at another fairground in Marshfield, Massachusetts (the town I live in now). Steven Tyler was about to buy a couple of rabbits. I tried to convince him not to by the Lions Head Rabbits- the other breed of bunnies would've been easier for him to take care of.
Give us your funniest Aerosmith story.
I had a birthday party for a buddy of mine at this outdoor restaurant on the water. When the waitress brought the cake out and we were singing Happy Birthday, Steven Tyler turned around in his seat and helped us blow the candles out!
Give us your favorite Aerosmith lyric or quote (one-liner)...
My favorite line is from "Train Kept Rolling". 'She was pretty, from New York City…walking down that old fair lane'.
Tell us about yourself…
My name is Susan. I am a 40 plus year old, pro photographer who has cancer. I do not look like it, though and can give any 30 year old a run for her money. I am going to kick cancer in the ass, find a good man who will be proud of me and photograph 50 weddings in 2013! I love being barefoot at the beach, ice-cream, puppies and air drumming to Aerosmith!! I want to get up on stage and twirl a baton when Aerosmith comes into town!
