Who Says Reasonoids Don't Hang Out With 1970s Rock Stars? Shikha Dalmia Paparazzis Aerosmith's Steven Tyler.

She was there, we weren't. But Reason Foundation senior policy analyst Shikha Dalmia says she ran into Steven Tyler of Aerosmith fame at the Café am Neuen See in Berlin, Germany, yesterday. And nothing happened between them.

Who are we to say otherwise?

No word yet on whether this snapshot violates the spirit of the antipaparazzi "Steven Tyler Act" that recently stumbled in Hawaii. It would have created a civil cause of action for recording people in a "personal or familial activity" if it pissed them off. Yes, lots of room in there for creative interpretation and lawyers.

Have fun, Shikha. And Steven. Watch out for the cameras.

    Pardon me for noticing that Shikha looks babe-ulous, and Steven looks....really, really old. And creepy.

    The look on her face tells me she felt the same way.

    "Save me from this lecherous old rock star!"

    Did she tell him about the wonders of unlimited immigration?

  • SusanM||

    Only if she thought he looked Mexican and needed a gardener.

  • Cytotoxic||

    She should have. Aerosmith would be smart enough to understand.

    Is that blue toenail polish Tyler's sporting?

  • SusanM||

    It works with the "moonbeam" ensemble.

    I saw a girl get star struck meeting Dave Foley in Ralph's last week.

    I spent the rest of the night wondering if being a D list celeb would be cool or if the awkward fat chick who wants to post a photo with you on instagram is just annoying.

    Seriously, Dave Foley?

    I think being a D-lister would be a comfortable place to be. You're probably pretty comfortable financially, you get approached by fans just often enough to keep your ego up, but you can still go about your business without being mobbed by paparazzi.

  • BakedPenguin||

    Hey, Dave Foley is at least B-list. KiTH and Newsradio were both good shows.

  • Agammamon||

    Fuck yeah. Just because he's not doing that much now doesn't mean that his past work wasn't awesome enough to merit continued recognition.

  • flye||

    What was that show he was in? Something like sih... suh... suh... sy... Psycho!

  • seguin||

    Dave Foley is @#$!#!@# awesome.

  • MJGreen||

    He's a Dave she knows.

  • ||


    Some respect for The Kids in the Hall...and Newsradio!

  • SusanM||

    Would you be saying that if he weren't Canadian?

  • ||

    Buzzfeed or some other auto-list-generator told me he had Hep-C.

    I would not let his hand touch my bare shoulder.

  • The Last American Hero||

    I don't know if he's a libertarian, although I think he supports legalized prostitution based on some of the videos featuring his daughter from the 90's.

  • Paul.||

    That's legalized pimpin'

  • Sudden||

    A teenage version of Sudden had many a fantasy of Liv and Alicia Silverstone.

    Ah, the good ole days.

    I have heard Steve Tyler is a gun owner with a considerable collection. He supposedly has a private range at his residence.


    You may be mixing him up with Joe Perry, the guitar player, who is an avid gun collector.

  • sarcasmic||

    There was a Sons of Guns episode with Perry in it.


    Dude look like a lady

  • ||

    As I have pointed out before Shikha is a serious hottie.

  • Lady Bertrum||

    But I don't like her shoes. Heels with thin straps would have been a better choice, but the environment looks a bit rough and maybe more sensible was the way to go.

  • Lady Bertrum||

    Better shoes

  • ||

    I'm with LB on this one.

    Hello. My name is Rufus and I'm Canadian.

  • seguin||

    You gunning for GILMORE's job?

  • ||

    Women and shoes. *sigh*

    I am a male. I did not notice her shoes. Or clothes. Or hairstyle.

    I see her face and general shape/fitness of her body. She could shave her head, wear sackcloth and wooden clogs and she would still be a hottie.

  • ||

    By the way Lady Bertrum, that was not a complaint, just an observation.

    My wife is a shoe freak too. More than 300 pairs.....

  • ||

    Who does she think she is?

    Imelda Marcos?

  • Jesus H. Christ||

    Tyler is not just a 70's rock star. Aerosmith had some big hits in the 80's and even the 90's. Besides, it's kind of cool that he's still willing to mug for a pic with a fan after all these years, and still smile to boot. Can you imagine how many times he's done that?

  • Lord at War||

    Nobody with a "+10 inch"?

    I am ashamed.

  • Steve G||

    Hey look it's a middle age woman...and Shikha

  • ||

    I don't think the Hawaiian law writ worldwide would affect Tyler given he was posing with a hot chick. I bet a thousand dollars he hit on her. Even if she didn't pick up on it, he was hitting on her. It's what he does.

    Yes, one of the eternal questions:

    What happened to Steven Tyler's feet?
