Rock 'N' Roller Coaster
Got this from www.screamscape.com:
1999 - Confirmed - ROCK 'N ROLLER COASTER - (3/28/99)
All of the trains have been on-site for the past couple of
weeks and full scale testing has already begun on both the ride and the
sound system. Souces close to the project say that two of the
trains have been outfitted with a rough version of the audio track,
which is indeed by Aerosmith. Insiders report that CM hiring for the
ride could begin within the next 2 or 3 weeks and that a Mid-May soft
open is very possible at this point.
(2/28/99) Sources tell me that Disney is preparing to shoot the
commerical footage with Aerosmith soon, helping to confirm the long
standing rumor that the band would provide the soundtrack for the ride.
Helping to confirm this, another spy says he saw a pre-Grammy
interview with the band where a member mentioned that they were working
on a "Disney Ride" as a recent project. Launching down a
flat tunnel into darkness, you'll fly up into a double spin corkscrew
and the fun is just starting. Lots of high speed turning and twisting
track, that will feature 3 inversions before you enter the brake run
back to the show building. This is Vekoma's first LIM Launch coaster
(0 to 60 in 3 seconds) and the long trains will feature a rock & roll
soundtrack as well as looking like a long stretch limo.
There is also a picture of the coaster.

Aerosmith, who fired their manager, Wendy Laister, last week, are rumored to
be signing with L.A.-based HK Management, which also handles Jimmy Buffett,
Steely Dan and Chicago. Ah, hello? Sounds like an old-age home to us! That's a
switch from last week when we heard that Steven Tyler & Co. were chatting up
The Firm, a hot young group of management types who rep Korn, the Backstreet
Boys and Ice Cube. Do stay tuned.

"Aerosmith fires Management" Article from the Boston Globe
ARMAGEDDON FOR BAND'S AGENTS
It's a funny way to top off a great stretch, but local rockers Aerosmith
cleaned house--firing their agent, lawyer, and public relations firm. Steven
Tyler, Joe Perry, and the rest of the Aerosmith crew fired manager Wendy
Laister, who took over at the helm following an equally abrupt firing of
longtime manager Tim Collins about three years ago. Word is the boys have
hired John Branca as their lawyer. Branca has previously worked as Michael
Jackson's counsel. No word on who else the band has tapped to fill in as
their management team. Fresh off of winning a Grammy and appearing on the
Academy Awards for their "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" from the movie
"Armageddon", the band is slated to hit the road on April 11 to finish the
tour they started more than two years ago.

Hub rockers Aerosmith shopping all around for a new manager
by Laura Raposa
Saturday, March 27, 1999
Aerosmith, back in the saddle after their ``Armageddon'' success, axed manager Wendy Laister this week, nearly three years after Laister copped the spoils in a coup that overthrew longtime band director Tim Collins.
Laister, a former rock 'n' roll PR gal, was credited with scoring the Boston Bad Boys the single ``I Don't Want to Miss a Thing'' which earned the band a No. 1 spot on the charts. The ballad, written by Diane Warren, won multiple Grammy nominations and a coveted Oscar nomination.
Band sources say there doesn't appear to be one reason why Steven Tyler & Co. cut Laister loose.
``There were a bunch of subtle things, but one thing was certain - they were dissatisfied with the lack of powerful management,'' said one rocker.
Now the boys, who head out on tour April 11, are shopping around for a new manager. The Firm - a hot, young, L.A. company that manages Korn, the Backstreet Boys and Ice Cube - is rumored to have the inside track. Then there's KISS manager Doc McGhee, who's also puckering up.
``This is a score of a lifetime for some manager,'' said another source.
``The question is who wouldn't want to talk to them.''
The band was not available for comment.

Aerosnub for Monica
Aerosmith axeman Joe Perry, who rocked the Oscars the other night, didn't Want
to Miss A Thing at any of the apres-Academy Awards bashes.
But Joe did take a pass on chatting up Vanity Fair maiden Monica Lewinsky at
the oh-so-chic maggie's party at Morton's.
``I saw her there, but I didn't have much to say to her, so why go talk to
her?'' Perry told the Track. ``It was funny, too. Since we had just been at
the White House the week before where we actually saw Bill (Clinton).''
And Joe, Steven Tyler & Co. would hate for word to get back to 1600
Pennsylvania Ave. that they were cavorting with the enemy!
In other Aeronews, the boys are still out in La-La holed up in the studio
laying down tracks for possibly another box office blockbuster a la
``If the soundtrack doesn't work out, the tracks will end up on the next
album,'' he said.
Meanwhile, the Boston Bad Boys are also in talks about doing a ``combination
blues/roots'' album which Joe described as half blues songs and half songs
that the rockers would have recorded ``if we could play then like we can play
So it wouldn't be the Same Old Song And Dance!

Aerosmith singer suing wife over nude pics
NEW YORK (AP) -- Steven Tyler, lead singer of the rock band Aerosmith, has sued his ex-wife in an attempt to make her return photographs taken of him in the nude.
Tyler, whose last name is Tallarico, said Kathleen Tallarico was supposed to give him the photos as part of their divorce agreement in 1987. Last summer, he said he saw a news item indicating she planned to publish "pornographic" pictures in a memoir.
State Supreme Court Justice Walter Tolub on Monday granted a temporary restraining order that blocks publication of the photographs until the issue is settled at trial.
Mrs. Tallarico, an actress, intended to use the photos in the paperback edition of a book about her life titled "Dream On," said her lawyer, Jay Butterman.
Tyler's lawyer, Stanford Lotwin, said the next step is a trial where "we'll try to get Steven's property back."
Tyler, 50, said in court papers that publication of the photos would embarrass and harm him, and she has no right to use pictures of him for commerce without his permission.
Mrs. Tallarico said she gave Tyler all of his personal photographs at the time of the divorce agreement and that the dispute centers on "one of two campy photographs that he and I took of each other ... in the buff."
