Steven Tyler Apologizes to Newly Deaf WWII Vet for National Anthem
BOSTON (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) Alec Hotko, a 94 year old veteran of World War II, has remained in remarkably good health through the years. He attributes it to what he calls “clean living.” But Hotko was with family last Sunday when he suddenly lost nearly all his hearing just moments after Aerosmith legend Steven Tyler’s universally panned rendition of The Star Spangled Banner roared through his grandson’s home theatre system. Tyler’s rendition of the National Anthem was sung shortly before the AFC Title Game between the Baltimore Ravens and Hotko’s hometown New England Patriots.
“I can’t hear a blasted thing now thanks to that pinko commie longhaired little punk.” the Battle of Anzio veteran lamented.
Tyler learned of Hotko’s tragic situation and visited him at Spiro’s Diner in nearby Chelsea. Tyler attempted on three occasions to apologize to Hotko and even sing Hotko’s favorite song, the beloved World War II favorite, I’ll Be Seeing You by Sammy Fain and Irving Kahal, but Hotko struck Tyler on the head with his cane. He continued chasing Tyler around the diner until the iconic rock star fell face first into plate of corned beef hash.
“I realize now all my actions over the past week have been wrong.” said Tyler. “I feel awful. I’ll never burst into song again. And I sure as shit won’t attempt make up with Alec Hotko again. Go Pats!!”
