Russ Irwin in a New York state of mind.

I’ve received yet another unintentionally hilarious press release. Or maybe it’s just me. That second sentence is especially potent. (And
grammatically a little ambiguous, although the comma makes it mostly okay, I guess.) Ah, the life of an Oliver!

Aerosmith Keyboardist Russ Irwin’s Love Letter to NYC

The *NY Daily News* premiered Aerosmith touring member Russ Irwin’s video for his first single, an ode to his hometown called “Manhattan” from his new solo record ‘Get Me Home.’ Irwin told them about the inspirations for his “retro modern piano record that takes a lot from the blues,” and his recent appearances on *The Real Housewives of NYC. *Read more and see the official video here:

AOL’s Noisecreep spoke with Irwin about his early career and reveals that he co-wrote Aerosmith’s next single, “What Could Have Been Love” (from their forthcoming album ‘Music From Another Dimension!’). “It’s a hard rock ballad and it’s very McCartney-ish. I think people are gonna love it,” Irwin says. Read the full interview here:

Irwin is currently on tour with Aerosmith.

Looks like there’s more to Russ’ Real Housewives influence than meets this press release!

    It looks like Irwin’s new lady love has really been influenced by Aerosmith: she clearly uses Tyler’s plastic surgeon.

    I think Irwin saying he “takes a lot from the blues” was unintentionally revealing. I say he should give back what he’s taken.

    How appropriate of him to do an interview with AOL. That way he’ll reach Aerosmith’s demographic: sixty year olds with limited technology skills. No word if the podcast of the interview is available on eight-track.

    Btw this guy’s Look is the platonic ideal of the Middle Aged Rocker. The jeans and blazer thing, the carefully managed carefree hairdo, the body courtesy of a personal trainer, the Oil of Olay spokesmodel girlfriend, it’s all so douchetastic. The way he holds his mouth when he sings makes it hard to resist the urge to punch him.

    BigSteve said: “Btw this guy’s Look is the platonic ideal of the Middle Aged Rocker.”

    I say: sentence of the month!

  6. I see this picture and can’t get past the lyric “David Duchovny, why won’t you love me?”.
