Brian Thomas Tichy
— former drummer for WHITESNAKE
, BILLY IDOL
, OZZY OSBOURNE
and now guitarist for S.U.N.
— received an unexpected call last week from none other than Steven Tyler
, who requested Tichy
to play drums with the AEROSMITH
singer and the band's guitarist, Joe Perry
, on March 10 at the tenth annual Stuart House
benefit hosted by John Varvatos
said: "Getting a call like that is very surreal. You are engaged in a conversation with someone you have always put in your top 10 lists of most influential, best singers, and singer of coolest bands.
"As a little kid, I literally learned how to play drums by playing along to AEROSMITH
's 'Live Bootleg'
, 'Toys In The Attic'
, 'Draw The Line'
and others! I told him how important he and AEROSMITH
were to me growing up.
"This is a total honor! I played drums on Steven
's 2011 single, 'Feels So Good'
. He watched me track the drums through the control room window. Two takes later, I was done. He was totally cool. I am glad that session went well as that is why he thought of me for this." S.U.N.
's record, "Something Unto Nothing"
, with Sass Jordan
on vocals, is currently available now on iTunes
