Aerosmith 's Steven Tyler is among the many celebrities who will appear in a new documentary miniseries that takes a look at the influential events and innovations that occurred during the 1980s.  The '80s: The Decade That Made Us will feature six episodes that will premiere on the National Geographic Channel over the course of three days -- April 14, 15 and 16.

The series, which is narrated by actor Rob Lowe , will delve into the social, political, cultural and technological changes that emerged during the so-called Me Decade.  The program will feature conversations with dozens of notable personalities, including Tyler, Dionne Warwick , Darryl "DMC" McDaniels , Grandmaster Flash , Quincy Jones , Michael J. Fox , David Hasselhoff and original MTV VJ Nina Blackwood .  In addition, The '80s will offer the final in-depth interview with late Dallas star Larry Hagman .

The National Geographic Channel will air The '80s: The Decade That Made Us at 8 p.m. ET/PT on April 14, and at 9 p.m. ET/PT on April 15 and 16.

In other Tyler news, the singer celebrated his 65th birthday on Tuesday in a lofty way.  The rocker tweeted a photo of himself apparently taken near the top of Haleakala, a 10,000-foot volcano located on the Hawaiian island of Maui.  Along with the image, Steven posted a message that reads, "HAPPY F***ING BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!  I can see your house from here!  I'm on top of the world!"

In honor of Tyler's birthday, Aerosmith's official website has launched a contest offering fans the chance to win a signed photo of the demon of screamin', plus a "mystery bundle" of goodies from the band.  Visit AeroForceOne.com to enter.  Entries will be accepted until next Wednesday, April 3.
