Aerosmith's Steven Tyler recently opened up about the tension that was created within the band when fell off the stage during a 2009 show in Sturgis, South Dakota. Tyler, who’d been using drugs at the time, injured his head, neck and broke a shoulder in the spill, which led to the cancellation of the tour.
He confessed, "I was afraid I'd never be in Aerosmith again. I was depressed, I was crying, I couldn't walk. Drugs took me down. Yes, it got us 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."
And if you need any more evidence that drugs are bad, kids…Tyler says fallout from his fight with gravity led directly to his signing on as a judge on American Idol. Clearly he must have sobered up, as he left Idol in 2011 and focused his attention back to Aerosmith.
