Steven Tyler Checks Into Rehab

AEROSMITH frontman STEVEN TYLER has checked himself into rehab for treatment of substance abuse.
The 60-year-old rocker has admitted himself to a Pasadena, California clinic for unspecified treatment.
The former hellraiser managed to stay sober for 20 years before re-entering a substance abuse programme. He first sought treatment in 1986 after finding himself under pressure from his bandmates to clean up his act.
According to website TMZ.com, Tyler will undergo detox at Las Encinas Hospital drug rehabilitation clinic - the same facility where Hollywood Madame Heidi Fleiss, rocker Sebastian Bach and pop star Aaron Carter will be treated as they make a public attempt at sobriety on U.S. reality TV programme Celebrity Rehab next month (Jun08).
The singer and Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry were dubbed the Toxic Twins for their legendary intake of heroin and stimulants before the band's demanding schedule clashed with their major drug abuse, leading to their brief disbanding in the 1980s.
It has been a tough month for the Livin' on The Edge rocker, whose daughter Liv recently went public with her split from rocker husband Royston Langdon.
Tyler credited his actress daughter's influence for his first successful attempt at sobriety.
Tyler's spokesperson has declined to comment on his current condition.
