Aerosmith Saved By Crisis Talks

Rockers AEROSMITH managed to mend their relationship with frontman STEVEN TYLER and save the band by sitting down for crisis talks in February (10).
Tyler stunned his bandmates last year (09) when he announced his plans for a two-year hiatus before quitting the group.
The musicians immediately embarked on a mission to find a new singer to allow the band to continue touring, but their plans were thrown into chaos when Tyler's manager, Skip Miller, threatened to sue Aerosmith if the rocker was replaced.
Just two weeks after Miller's warning, the band appeared back on track, announcing dates in Europe and South America over the summer (10) with Tyler at the helm.
Bassist Tom Hamilton reveals the group managed to put the feud behind them by sitting down for a meeting and talking through their problems.
He tells the Boston Herald, "There was management there. (We were) all lawyered up. There was a lot of sort of reconciling and processing feelings and stuff. Everyone said how they wanted things to be in the future and it became clear that, for everybody, the coolest thing to do would be to resolve things with the band.
"The phone was ringing. People wanted to see the band. We finally realised, even with all the BS (bulls**t) flying around, that there was a beautiful thing right there if we had enough sense to grab it."
And Hamilton praises Tyler for his decision to enrol in rehab to treat an addiction to painkillers, because the band wouldn't have survived if he hadn't sobered up.
He adds, "(It was an) intensive sobriety treatment (program). He took a really big step and it was really great."
