LORELAI: Yes, I would date Steven Tyler.
RORY: Can I ask you a question whose answer wouldn’t horrify me?
Steven Tyler (born Steven Tallarico in 1948) is an American singer, songwriter, and musician, best known as the lead singer of the rock band Aerosmith. He is known for his high pitched screaming and wide vocal range, on stage acrobatics, and colourful stage outfits, including his trademark scarves (this may have appealed to Lorelai, as scarves are among her favourite accessories).
Tyler gained fame during the 1970s, which waned in the early 1980s due to his drug use. After receiving treatment, he staged a remarkable comeback in the mid-1980s, and Aerosmith reached the peak of their success during the 1990s. He is now regarded as an enduring rock icon.
