Steven Tyler

From Wikipedia: Steven Tyler (born Steven Victor Tallarico on March 26, 1948) is an American singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, best known as the frontman and lead singer of the Boston-based rock band Aerosmith, in which he also plays the harmonica, and occasional piano and percussion. He is known as the "Demon of Screamin'" due to his high screams and his wide vocal range. He is also known for his on-stage acrobatics. During his high-energy performances, he usually dresses in bright, colorful outfits with his trademark scarves hanging from his microphone stand. In the 1970s, Tyler rose to prominence as the frontman of Aerosmith, which released such milestone hard rock albums as Toys in the Attic and Rocks. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Tyler had a heavy drug and alcohol addiction, and the band's popularity waned. He completed drug rehabilitation in 1986 and subsequently maintained sobriety for over 20 years, but had a relapse with prescription painkillers in the late 2000s, for which he successfully received treatment in 2009. After Aerosmith launched a remarkable comeback in the late 1980s and early 1990s with the albums Permanent Vacation, Pump, and Get a Grip, Tyler became a household name and has remained a relevant rock icon. As a result, he has since embarked on several solo endeavors including guest appearances on other artists' music, film and TV roles (including as a judge on American Idol), authoring a bestselling book, and solo work (including a Top 40 hit single in 2011). However, he has continued to record music and perform with Aerosmith, after more than 43 years in the band. The band's latest album, Music from Another Dimension!, was released on November 6, 2012. Tyler is included among Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Singers. He was also ranked 3rd on Hit Parader's Top 100 Metal Vocalists of All Time. In 2001 he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Aerosmith, and he was the presenter when AC/DC was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2003. In 2013, Tyler and his songwriting partner Joe Perry will be recipients of the ASCAP Founders Award and will also be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Vikings and Robots

With the giant robot/monster movie Pacific Rim ( Director Guillermo del Toro) hitting the big screen soon, and talk of a possible Viking Movie called Berserker (Director Mel Gibson)getting the early treatment , and the new series "Vikings" airing on the History Channel, I thought it would be a cool idea to do a concept piece that brought the two subjects of Vikings and Robots together. I guess I'll leave it up to the viewer to interpret why these two subjects would ever collide. Could the Vikings have gone through a time portal somewhere in the Bermuda triangle? Or maybe the Robot was sent into the past, or what if Poseidon (Neptune)was a giant Mech. LOL I'll leave that up to you. For me, it was cool to paint on my free time in-between art jobs. Thanks for stopping by, Enjoy!!!! Vikings_vs_Robots001
