Aerosmith Takes The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Aerosmith took part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge during a show in Texas on Monday night. The band was challenged by Motley Crue, and, for their part, passed on the challenge to Quentin Tarantino, Fleetwood Mac, Cheap Trick, the Dalai Lama, and the road crews for Aerosmith and Slash.

Joe Perry announced before getting soaked that the band would donate proceeds from each ticket sale toward ALS research.

All five band members then got drenched on stage.

So far, the ALS IBC has raised over $78 million in donations compared to $2.5 million during the same time period last year (July 29 to August 25).

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, is a disease of the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement. ALS is also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.
