Steven Tyler Gunning For DC Voice For Songwriters
Rock & Roll Icon, Steven Tyler, who celebrated his 66th birthday yesterday, has never been unafraid of pushing for change and that is why is is gunning for the most powerful voice in music for songwriters.
CelebNMusic247.com has learned that Tyler’s credits run deep in the music not only being one of the first to shatter the barriers between Rock and Rap with their timeless Run DMC-assisted anthem, ‘Rock This Way’. The Aerosmith frontman stands as a vocal and relevant figure in music.
CelebNMusic247.com has learned via Revolt who reports Steven Tyler is an activist who carries the same attitude and approach to his fight for fait copyright protections for songwriters.
Respected in Washington as a very engaged, progressive and respected lobbyist. Getting behind initiatives to improve the experience and earnings of writers, the living legend doesn’t hesitate to rally members of Congress and other Government officials to take action.
Last night, at a lobbying event for the protection of intellectual property rights of singers and songwriters, Steven Tyler performed a set of his hits. Joined by suited statesmen like John Conyers (D-Mich), Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) and Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) who crashed the stage to sing renditions of ‘Cryin’, ‘Dream On’, and of course ‘Walk This Way’, a crowded room of sharp-dressed politicians and civil leaders rocked out for the cause. The premise for the evening was specifically stronger protection against having a writer’s work used freely in samples or mashups by other artists.
Tyler is committed to becoming a passionate voice in Washington for songwriters, not just the ‘rich rock stars’, further saying, ‘Hopefully, I can touch them, like a modern-day Will Rogers.”
Happy Birthday to Steven Tyler, born Steven Victor Tallarico, celebrated his 66th birthday yesterday. Happy Birthday Steven.
