4. His sticky fingers cost the band some money back in the early days
Tyler grew up on the tougher streets of The Bronx and Yonkers, New York when he was a child, where the “seeker-seeker” rule was apparently a little stricter than in other areas of the country. When Aerosmith was still an unknown band that was trying to make ends meet, it was Tyler’s smart (or not-so-smart) kids that cost the band one of their best-paid gigs. According to Perry, Tyler stole a projector from a local club where the musicians who were fighting would get a hot meal and a decent payday as part of their weekly concert, which caused the place to lose interest in hiring them soon after. Finders-keepers, losers-weepers.
