That Time Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler Bumped Into New Ambassador At The Western Wall
Just another day at the Western Wall.
Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler, who is in Israel to play a concert, ran into the new U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman at the holy site on Monday.
The grizzled rocker and the white-haired diplomat were quite the odd couple — which made for an interesting photo op.
Aerosmith is readying to play Wednesday at Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park — the band’s first performance in the Jewish state in 22 years. Tyler reportedly requested a slew of specific healthy foods to show up in his room: organic goat milk, organic almonds and cashews, washed blueberries, Pink Lady apples and flavored seltzer.
Friedman arrived in Israel on Monday — visiting the Western Wall was clearly a top priority — and presented his credentials to Israeli President Reuven Rivlin on Tuesday. He will busy from the get-go, as President Trump is scheduled to visit the Jewish state next week.
No word if Friedman is crazy for Aerosmith.
