Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has blamed his addiction to prescription pills for his devastating stage fall in South Dakota in 2009 - revealing he was snorting sleeping pills at the time.
The singer stunned fans during a performance at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally when he fell off the stage and broke his shoulder, forcing the rockers to cancel the remainder of their North American tour.
Tyler previously put the accident down to a mis-timed dance move, but he's now come clean about the real reason behind the incident.
He tells U.S. talk show host David Letterman, "I guess it's not any news about my drug use and addictions in the past...
"So a couple of years ago I was doing Lunesta (sedative) because I had some problems with my feet... That's the tip of the iceberg. I was snorting that, I fell off the stage... That shows you what kind of a drug addict I was. Only the finest for me... I was looking for any excuse to get high and I should have been using my band because my band is the strongest drug I've ever had."
Tyler checked into rehab four months after the accident to kick his addiction for good.
