Steven Tyler Reveals What Put Aerosmith Back In The Saddle

(Classic Rock) Steven Tyler says Aerosmith's journey to Japan in 2011 was the saving of the band's career. The experience has been captured in documentary movie Rock For The Rising Sun, which will be shown in Vue Cinemas across the UK on July 16 ahead of a DVD release the following week.

They were still reeling from a series of fall-outs that saw the frontman hospitalised with a broken collarbone, his return to drinking and drug-taking, and his bandmates inviting other vocalists to take his place.

But he believes their Japanese trip, made soon after the earthquake and tsunami that devastated much of the nation, put Aerosmith back on the road to success.

Tyler tells Rolling Stone: "We were all such a bad place that we didn't realise our self-worth. It took going to Japan for the band to realise its own magic again. We thought, 'Holy sh*t, we've got to do a f**king record right now!' So that tour helped us to a new album." more on this story
