On connecting with Steven Tyler
I've never been a huge fan of the Aerosmith frontman. Perhaps that's a little unfair. I've never much fancied his music, so I've tended to shy away from learning anything about the guy beyond reading the occasional headline about his latest bout with rehab.
But here's the thing: Strip away the larger-than-life rock star persona and he's actually quite an inspirational human being. I think I need to look beyond my heavy metal prejudices a bit: I may learn something in the process.
Your turn: Have you ever been pleasantly surprised by someone you otherwise may have shied away from?
