Steven Tyler is no weatherman but it didn’t stop him from crashing a live snow storm report.
‘I’m from New York City and I’m down here to see my daughters and grandson Milo,’ Tyler told CNN journalist Poppy Harlow, after she asked why he was visiting from Boston.
And he took the opportunity to give his grandson a shout out: ‘How you doing, Milo!’

Bundled up in beanies, scarfs, gloves and heavy winter jackets, the Aerosmith frontman shared he wouldn’t be flying anytime soon.
‘I got a funny feeling the storm is going to keep us here a couple extra days,’ he said, adding he was preparing to go on Howard Stern’s NYC-based radio show on Monday.
When asked if he had any advice to New Yorkers who were braving Winter Storm Jonah, he said to ‘stay home’ and drink ‘hot chocolate.’

His daughter Mia said she was happy to have her father visit despite the record-breaking snowfall.
‘I like playing in the snow – so I’m kind of happy about this,’ she said. ‘We grew up playing in the snow and doing snow angels and snow things because he’s a big kid.’
When asked her favorite album to ring in the winter storm, she couldn’t help but promote her famous dad.

‘I listen to metal, so you guys probably don’t want to hear that,’ she laughed. ‘But I’d like to say I’d probably like to listen to my dad’s new album.’
A day earlier, the singer appeared on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Friday to promote his new country album, Red, White and You.
When Colbert asked Tyler why he was only recording his first solo album now, he responded: ‘Why not?’

Why not? The singer grew up listening to the Everly brothers, which inspired him to record a country album
‘I mean I can’t ever stand still,’ he said. ‘You can take the country out of rock, but you can’t take the rock out of the country.’
He said he had always loved country music, especially growing up listening to the Everly brothers.
Asked if it was hard for him to transition from singing rock to country, he said no.
‘I just went down and rubbed noses with a bunch of good ol’ country boys,’ he joked.
