Steven Tyler of Aerosmith outside Hit Records in East Dallas’ Casa View neighborhood.

East Dallas is no stranger to famous musicians. While locals Erykah Badu and Polyphonic Spree help our neighborhood maintain its hipness, it isn’t every day that a member of Aerosmith visits.

In early July a couple years ago, Stephen Tyler was spotted in Casa View visiting Casa View Thrift and Hit Records on Ferguson Road. He even tweeted his visit beforehand, and has been friends with Hit Records proprietor Ron Ross for years.
