Was Aerosmith's Steven Tyler Drunk When He Fell Off Stage?
Sources close to the Boston band have revealed Tyler was "partying hard" before he lost his footing and wound up with a broken shoulder. Since then, his bandmates haven't heard directly from him, and are instead receiving daily email updates from his management – a separate entity from Aerosmith's management.
A band employee tells the Boston Herald: "Truthfully, he's a liability for the band. He's uninsurable because of all the accidents and cancelled dates." Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton, Brad Whitford and Joey Kramer are understood to have suspended work on their upcoming album after video and photos of Tyler appeared on the web, showing a gaunt, wasted figure buying alcohol in a liquor.
[Day in Rock note: We usually don't put much stock into unnamed sources, so you might keep that in mind when reading this story, but the Boston Herald isn't exactly The Sun and Rock Radio's reporting is quite a bit tamer than the Herald report. If what the sources told the Herald is true we hope Steven can get back on the wagon soon. You can read more of Rock Radio's report at the more link and they link the original Herald story as well]
