Spinal Tap Hit Too Close To Home For Aerosmith's Steven Tyler

(Gibson) Rolling Stone reports that former record industry executive Joe Smith has donated a large amount of interviews he has done with famous musicians to the Library of Congress. The interviews were conducted some time in the mid'80s.

One of the interviews is with Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler, who talks candidly about his hard partying days in the'70s: "I can remember the height of my oblivion, I was into doing things just because I could. I would think nothing of tipping a whole long spread, and I'd be so livid explicit no turkey roll! Give us a turkey no gravy, no stuffing, just real meat. No hockey pucks, no mystery meat, just a turkey."

Does that perhaps sound a bit like Nigel Tufnel, the over the top character from the rock mockumentary This is Spinal Tap? Well, apparently Tyler thought that the movie hit a little too close to home, as he reveal in the interview with Joe Smith: "That movie bummed me out, because I thought, 'How dare they? That's all real, and they're mocking it.'" more on this story
