Steven Tyler appeared on CBS-TV’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Friday.
The singer was on hand to announce the release of his new solo single, “Red, White & You”, and to promote his organization Janie’s Fund, a new initiative with Youth Villages to provide services to girls who have endured neglect and abuse.
The charity project was inspired by the feedback to Tyler’s 1989 Aerosmith song, “Janie’s Got A Gun”, which addressed the trauma of sexual abuse in children.
Part of the campaign’s launch last year saw the singer send fellow rockers like Bono, Elton John and others a version of his classic scarf-wrapped microphone stand to use in promoting the venture through social media.
Tyler hooked Colbert up with his own mic stand and proceeded to demonstrate the proper use of the stage tool.
"This is my girlfriend that I live vicariously through on stage," he told the late night host.

“Red, White & You” is the second single from Tyler’s debut solo album, following the lead track “Love Is Your Name.”
The Aerosmith singer continues to work on the project, which is expected sometime this year.
