Steven Tyler Replaced Drugs With Idol

(Classic Rock) Steven Tyler believes he became a judge on TV gameshow American Idol in order to replace the adrenaline buzz heroin used to give him.

The singer caused dissent among his Aerosmith bandmates when he announced he'd signed up to appear on the talent search series because his 2009 stage fall followed by the admission he was back on drugs had nearly led to the band's collapse.

He thinks his drug habit cost him over $20m during the years he was a habitual user. But now that he's quit the show in order to concentrate on the band and their upcoming album Music From Another Dimension, he believes he needed the rush live TV offered him.
