Aerosmith Bassist Bags on Babs Bush At Charity Event

BOSTON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton doesn’t sing “Dude Looks Like A Lady” but he’ll be living the song onstage tonight (Apr. 7) in Boston.

Hamilton will be donning drag and portraying former first lady Barbara Bush at tonight’s 11th annual “Banned in Boston” comedy event for Urban Improv, a theater-based violence prevention program in Boston, Massachusetts.

Hamilton says he’s been a longtime fan of “sketch and slapstick comedy” and says it’s come in handy for him during the three years he’s taken part in the improv performance.

The Boston native notes that playing George W. Bush’s mom should be even more fun than his previous roles: current First Lady Laura Bush and Camilla Parker Bowles.

Hamilton says the main difference between playing Laura and Barbara Bush will be one thing: “Padding.”

He adds with a laugh: “I just hope we’re not being wiretapped about this right now.”
