Aerosmith Relapse Blamed On Girlfriend
NJ.com reports: Aerosmith reps aren't talking about frontman Steven Tyler's reported relapse and current rehab attempt, but his hometown paper says some are pointing fingers at the rocker's hard-partying, much-younger girlfriend, Erin Brady.

Tyler, who has been frank about his early rock'n'roll excesses, checked into La Encinas Hospital in Pasadena Wednesday, the hospital where celebrity addict specialist Drew Pinsky practices, TMZ.com reported.

Tyler, whose longtime wife Teresa left him for a handyman in 2005, started dating Brady soon after. The Boston Herald describes Brady as a "30-something rocker chick and former Clear Channel tour accountant" who "seemed to embrace the rock 'n' roll lifestyle with a vengeance." For example: At the Florida Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in December, she tangled with a tribal VIP's daughter after a night of partying with Tyler. (He reportedly dumped her after the incident, but they got back together.) - more on this story

Stadium Addresses Zeppelin Concert Rumors
Globe And Mail reports: It's been a long time since Led Zeppelin did the stroll in front of a Toronto audience, but a return by the grand British band of blues rock could happen, possibly at Rogers Centre.

Rumours of a Zeppelin reunion have floated freely since the band's ballyhooed one-off performance at London's O2 Arena last December. Current speculation, however, has foundation. "It's my understanding that some preliminary discussions are going on," said Nadia Flaim, the stadium's communications manager .

Earlier this week, a MuchMusic blogger reported that a "reliable source" had provided details. "No fancy tour of the U.S.," the online dispatch reads, "but Toronto will have four dates at Skydome/Rogers Centre this coming August." According to Ms. Flaim, August concerts are unlikely, due to Blue Jays and Argonauts games already in place. - more on this story

Band No Longer Cursed
Metal Underground reports: Cursed frontman Chris Colohan has more or less confirmed the recent rumors of his group's demise. Here's the word: Yeah, you heard. Apparently, it gets even worse. That's all I know or even want to know for now.

We got robbed at the very end of tour in a totally unreal, extremely sketchy series of events that still makes no sense at all, only leads to paranoia, anger and a total loss of faith. Passports, money, all the costs of the tour. Either way, whoever did it, it was a bullet in the head, the end of the line. A sudden and totally f**ked up way for it to end, which I know will be fitting when I look back on it.

All we could do was play the show, badly, and go our ways with whatever money we could muster. I hitched a ride back to Prague with Tomas. Since I can't do a f**king thing about it, I'm going to hang out with my girl, and friends, stare at some Czech mountains and try not to think about it. Needless to say, all outstanding plans are off. - more on this story
