Steven Tyler Checks into Rehab
The Aerosmith rocker is giving professional treatment another go.
Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry caused diehard fans to lose their cool in November when he announced that Steven Tyler was quitting the band. And although that is no longer the case, Tyler will be temporarily MIA as he has checked into rehab to treat an addiction to prescription medications.
“With the help of my family and team of medical professionals I am taking responsibility for the management of my pain and am eager to be back on the stage and in the recording studio with my band mates,” Tyler said in a statement to Rolling Stone.
This isn’t the first time the 61-year-old singer has sought treatment. Last year he voluntarily stayed at a California-based rehabilitation facility due to his painkiller dependency. (The New York Times)
