See Aerosmith's Steven Tyler busking in Moscow

Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler has made one fan’s day by joining him for a spot of busking on one of his biggest hits.

The flamboyant frontman was in Moscow as part of a live tour, which included a massive free concert on Lubyanskaya Ploshchad, when he decided to accompany Russian busker Alexander Anisimov in an impromptu rendition of his ballad I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing.

As Alexander strummed along on his guitar, Steven belted out the track from disaster movie Armageddon much to the delight of onlookers.

The 67-year-old, dressed in standard rock star uniform of jeans and a leather jacket, then encouraged his new guitar-playing pal to join in with the vocals, although the US star seemed to be improvising a little with the lyrics.

At the end of the performance, the pair high-fived and hugged before posing for pictures in front of their cheering audience.

“I didn’t recognise him at all,” Alexander reportedly told the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper. “A foreigner came up to me and started singing along … ‘He sings well,’ I thought.

“But when he started to sing louder and more confidently, it dawned on me who it was. I was stunned.”
