TORI AMOS: 'GENE SIMMONS Is Scarier To Little Girls Than A Blackout'

Robert Cherry of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that singer Tori Amos shared her story of The Big Blackout during her performance at Tower City Amphitheater in downtown Cleveland's Flats Saturday night (August 16).

Early in her set, the ivory-tickling chanteuse revealed that she had waited out the crisis in a Birmingham, Michigan, hotel. She then detailed her adventure in song.

Apparently Amos and her 3-year-old daughter, Natashya, shared a candlelit lobby on Thursday (August 14) with AEROSMITH's Steven Tyler and KISS' Gene Simmons, both of whom were also scheduled to rock Detroit the following evening.

According to the brief, jaunty number, Amos' daughter liked Tyler because "he sings in nursery rhymes." But Tyler's avowed serial-womanizing co-headliner fared less well: "That man is scarier to the little girls than a blackout," sang Amos, smiling.
