Aerosmith's Steven Tyler Denies Drunken Stage Fall

(antiMusic) Aerosmith's Steven Tyler spoke with Rolling Stone to clear up some of the reports that surfaced last week, including a Boston Herald report based on band "insiders" who claimed that Tyler was drunk during his recent fall of the stage and that has created problems within the band. He tells Rolling Stone that he was "As sober as you can be" while discussing the fall. Here are a couple of excerpts from that exchange:

What happened that night?: I don't really know. There was a torrential downpour and the guys [at the campground] said, "Look, it's still slippery." I watched myself on YouTube, and it could have been my knee buckling or any ankle. The last thing I remember before I hit the ground was people grabbing for me, but they couldn't reach me because of the barricade. At any other Aerosmith show I probably would've been caught and thrown back onto the stage naked and without jewelry [laughs]. I stood up and couldn't raise my arm and knew I'd broken something.

Care to comment on that clip [on a tabloid site] of you in a liquor store?: Oh, Jesus Christ. A good friend of mine and Joe's the brother of the guy who works on my house, my housekeeper passed away. I was at the funeral. And after the funeral, they're Italian and had a feast at the house, a wake, and I stopped at the liquor store and paid for the booze. I did not buy any for myself. It was never proven that I did. Some kid whipped out a phone and took a picture. Anything to sell papers. It was for the wake. I would do it over and over a million times.

He goes on to discuss some of the current politics within the band and more. - Read the full interview here
