After twenty drug-free years of music, 60-year old Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has checked himself into a drug rehab clinic in Pasadena, California.
In a recent interview with Blender, promoting the Aerosmith Guitar Hero Wii game, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry said surprising little about the recent events. "I actually haven't talked to [Steven] in a while. We spend most of our time off the road split up — that's just how it goes." Asked whether he knew what Tyler's rehab was for, he responded, "I'm not sure, but I hope he's doing OK."
EOnline reports that Tyler has checked himself into Las Encinas Hospital drug rehabilitation clinic. This is the same clinic featured in MTV's Celebrity Rehab, where patients are treated by Dr. Drew Pinsky.
We hope Mr. Tyler recovers soon and continues his stellar career.
Update! Apparently Steven Tyler checked himself into rehab to be in a safe environment to recover from a painful procedure on his foot. Whew!
