Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler is in New York visiting his daughter Mia and was doing the opposite of what New York City mayor is telling everyone “stay off the streets”.

Tyler is in the city doing media calls, including a stop-over with Stephen Colbert for the launch of his new song ‘Red White & You’.

Tyler also caught up with the family and was out taking a stroll with his daughter Mia Tyler when CNN decided to shove a microphone up his nose and get his reaction to the dump of snow that has brought New York to a halt.

Steven seemed more interested in sending out cheerio calls to his grandkid than talking weather. “I’m here to see my daughters and my grandson Milo. ‘How ya doing Milo and Royceton. I was going downtown but decided not to. The weather’s terrible”, he told the global CNN audience.

Tyler did say he had a few promo commitments while he was in town. “I’m gonna hunker down. I’ve got a funny feeling the storm will keep us here a few extra days but Monday I’m doing Howard Stern’.

Mia had more to say. “The global warming thing is messing us up but I love it. I like playing in the snow. We grew up playing in the snow and doing snow angels. He is a big kid,” she said.
