Soap Operas Rock

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Soap operas rock – literally.

That’s the song being sung by One Life To Live star Kamar de los Reyes, who says rockstars are his No. 1 fans.

De los Reyes plays club owner/police officer Antonio Vega on the soap and says his biggest fans aren’t housewives hanging out at home, but bonafide rockers.

For example, de los Reyes says he was shocked when Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler came up to him at a Portland hotel and told him he watched his show all the time.

Says de los Reyes: “He was like, ‘Dude, I’m your biggest fan!’ I didn’t except him to say that at all – I mean those guys are iconic and changed the course of music.”

Rocker Stevie Nicks is also a huge One Life To Live fan and even schedules band rehearsals around the show.

And that’s not all, de los Reyes says the Fleetwood Mac singer was so touched by characters Blair Cramer and Todd Manning and their relationship that she wrote a whole song devoted to them.

He explains: “It makes sense. Rockstars perform at night and have all day to relax on their tour bus – I’m just thankful they’re tuning into our show!”

One Life To Live celebrates its 10,000 episode this Friday (Aug. 17).
