This is something to do with the whole crew watching! Steven Tyler gives new meaning to Open Wide… Blow a Cord Dude!
Love that Rocker! He is so cute. So Turn up the volume, pop some popcorn and curl up to watch the National Geographic Show on cable tonight- See how to burst some blood vessels – how your mouth works.
Imagine the amount of wear and tear we Showgirls put on our various soft tissues… lol
Here is a excerpt from the National Geographic interview about the Incredible Human Machine:
Chad Cohen: This program shows how the entire body works together as one very well-oiled machine. But we also highlight how the body sometimes doesn’t work, with stories of everyday people undergoing extraordinary new medical procedures. We feature the first study injecting stem cells into patients suffering from heart failure; the first test measuring a performer’s vocal activity during a live performance; and the first retinal implant trial. We also show off a lot of new medical imagery. You’d be amazed at the places you can stick a camera these days.
Nat Geo: How were you able to get access to film Steven Tyler of Aerosmith from the inside out?
Chad Cohen: Steven had recently come to Dr. Steven Zeitels of Massachusetts General Hospital with a vocal bleed that had caused the band to cancel part of its tour. Dr. Zeitels pioneered a noninvasive method of laser surgery that zaps the blood vessels, sealing them off and stopping the bleeding. Steven was very impressed with the surgery and happy that his voice was working again. Both he and Dr. Zeitels were interested in getting the story of the technology out there, and I think they trusted National Geographic Channel to tell it in the way it should be told.
Nat Geo: What was it like filming the live sequence with Steven during the concert?
Chad Cohen: It was crazy backstage, not the sort of place a National Geographic producer usually finds himself. Steven was a pleasure to work with and was really interested in learning how his voice actually worked. The doctors hooked him up with devices to measure the speed of his vocal cords and to monitor his heart rate and respiration rate during the live performance. It was hilarious when he went out on stage and said, “Thank you to Massachusetts General Hospital and National Geographic for getting me ‘more wired’ than I have ever been before.” During the concert, we recorded how many times his vocal cords flapped together — it was more than 500,000 times, and his vocal cords traveled more than six miles over the course of the show. No one has ever recorded real-time data like that during a rock concert.
