    Chance encounter with Aerosmith's Steven Tyler for Ontario man with Down's syndrome


    From shopping for pantyhose with his mom, to rocking out on stage with famous frontman

    Anthony Yorfido, who has Down syndrome, unsuccessfully tried getting tickets for a pair of sold-out Steven Tyler solo shows at the Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls this past week.

    But his luck changed when Yorfido and his mother, Diane, happened to bump into the rock star last Thursday while shopping at a medical supplies store in Niagara Falls.

    "I was picking up my pantyhose and I saw a stretch limo outside I went in and Steven Tyler was leaned over on the counter and he had a couple ladies with him," Diane Yorfido told CBC News.

    "Anthony was standing behind me [and] he just said, 'Oh my god.' He went nuts. He goes, 'Is that Steven Tyler?' Like he totally knows him because he loves Aerosmith, he loves Steven Tyler. He listens to his music all the time."
