October 3, 1978

Steven Tyler of Aerosmith performs 21 October 2001On this day in 1978, Aerosmith performed a show in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Police started to arrest fans in the crowd for smoking marijuana. This prompted Steven Tyler to curse at them Jim Morrison-style from the stage.

Tyler announces that the band will bail out anyone who is arrested that night, and the next day they do just that.

Understandably, memories of the event are hazy and the number arrested have been reported between 28 and 58 people.
