London: Fulfilling his fan’s last wish, Aerosmith’s lead singer Steven Tyler had an online chat with a terminally ill patient who wanted to interact with him.

The 63-year-old 'American Idol' judge granted Lawrence Ori, suffering from a degenerative condition called supernuclear palsy, a chance to interact with him, a website reported.

Ori always wanted to meet the rocker and Tyler spoke to him at his hospital via Skype earlier this month over a computer screen.

Ori's condition rendered him unable to speak or move, but he was able to listen as the singer told him, "Lawrence? This is Steven. I'm coming to you from LA and I'm so glad to meet you."

The call ended with Tyler saying, "You hold on, Lawrence. I love you man. Great to meet you."

The fan, however, passed away just hours after the phone call, which was set up by the Passages Hospice Dream Foundation, a charity dedicated to fulfilling the final wishes of patients.
