Steven Tyler Feared He Would Never Be In Aerosmith Again
"I was afraid I'd never be in Aerosmith again," Tyler told Stern. "And the guys were being wise-asses; 'you should sit on a stool.' I said I'll sit on a stool Joe (Perry) if you play ukulele. Howard, I was depressed, I was crying, I couldn't walk."
"Drugs took me down," explained Tyler. "Yes, it got us [Aerosmith] through the '70s … if it wasn't for Peruvian Marching Powder, we wouldn't have been able to do what we did from the '70s to '79. We played every state in the US except for Alaska and Hawaii."
The fallout from the 2009 stage incident led directly to Tyler signing on as an American Idol judge. Read what had to say and stream the interview.
