Steven Tyler hates modern life

Steven Tyler hates modern technology.

Although the 68-year-old Aerosmith singer "loves notoriety" he is not a fan of selfie culture, social media or society's general obsession with the Internet and thinks people are "dying slowly" online.

Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine, he said: "Everybody's got a camera attached to their iPhone, so you can't go anywhere without a picture. I have a great T-shirt that says 'GO F**K YOUR SELFIE' that I walk through airports with.

"You are what you eat. Sleep with one eye open. Follow your dreams. There's a lot of them. Also, people today are dying slowly. They're either on the Internet too much and they lose their job, or they're fucking eating too much. All that stuff is going to take you down. It's as obvious as balls on a tall dog."

Someone who shares his aversion to modern life is Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and the 'I Don't Want to Miss a Thing' hitmaker classes him as one of his heroes.

He said: "He could have gone the way of the rest of Nirvana, but he came out from behind the drums and became a guitar-playing lead singer. The two of us are birds of a feather. You won't meet two more country, down-to-earth, help-my-wife-make-the-pie type of people than myself and David."
