Boobs made Aerosmith's Tom Hamilton say Stuff
In a recent 60 Minutes expose, Aerosmith: Livin' on the Edge, Lara Logan coaxed out some harsh criticism of Steven Tyler from his band mates Tom Hamilton, Brad Whitford and Joey Kramer. She then used the criticism to question Steven Tyler who was taken aback and at first a bit defense, then he returned the favor.
I suspect Aerosmith looked at the 60 Minutes interview as an opportunity for high profile public relations, but as it turned out the segment didn't put the band in a good light. Now, Tom Hamilton has an explanation which you have to read but first make sure there are no distractions.

Last month, 60 Minutes aired an interview with Aerosmith that featured correspondent Lara Logan bringing up negative comments made by the band about Steven Tyler to Steven himself. Bassist Tom Hamilton recently told Canadian station 97-5 K-Rock that the way the interview was formatted was “a little brutal” and that they used “whatever we said about Steven that was negative and just nailed him to get his reaction. So, he got pissed off and said a couple of things that kind of were demeaning to the rest of us.”
Hamilton also explained that Logan had on a “very low-cut top” and that was the reason they all spoke so freely. Said Hamilton, “I'm like, okay,this is sort of, 'Get the band nervous with your cleavage and make them say stuff.' And if you go and watch the interview, you won't see that. So I'm like, ahh, that's how they do it. They show their boobs and get you to talk about stuff. And then, there you are…it works every time.”
Seriously? Boobs make Tom Hamilton nervous and get him to say stuff? I think he's trying to be funny but it isn't, especially if you know what happened to Lara Logan in Egypt.
