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.
A 51-year-old Pink Floyd fan has been sentenced to 28 days in jail for repeatedly playing the band's albums at high volume throughout the night.
Paul Foster was put behind bars for having ignored five injunctions against playing loud music in recent years. Neighbors reported that night after night they’d have to put up with Foster blaring The Dark Side Of The Moon, Wish You Were Here and The Wall – followed by sessions of soul ballads.
One of Foster's neighbors said, "It's been a nightmare. I like Pink Floyd as much as the next man – but not when it's being played ten times a day until 4am. I think whenever I hear their songs again I'll be climbing the walls."
