On New Year's Eve 2011, three men entered a stage. Those three men were Steven Tyler, "Weird Al" Yankovic and Alice Cooper. They sang "Come Together" by the Beatles. If those in the audience told their friends, their friends would not believe them. But now, we have proof that magical things can, indeed, come true in 2012.
Heralding the year 2012 after, we assume, an exclusive meeting of the Society Of Guys With Beautiful Hair Well After We Thought Was Possible, the three men did the most surreal karaoke we've ever seen in Hawaii at the Mala Ocean Tavern in Wailea, Maui. The late-period Beatles record (which had previously been covered by Tyler as an early Aerosmith hit) got the supergroup treatment it deserves in front of an enthusiastic crowd. And thanks to YouTube user johno808maui, we can experience it for ourselves.
Somehow, these men are more relevant than ever. Although your kids may know them better as the "American Idol" judge and "Perform This Way" guy than the "Walk This Way" and "Eat It" hoodlums, Steven Tyler and Weird Al have shown that their talent is decade-spanning. Also, Alice Cooper.
Start your 2012 right by watching for yourselves. (And Yoko, if you're reading this, please don't pull this off YouTube? Please?)
