Aerosmith - Tyler Snorted Sleeping Pills Before Stage Fall

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.

Americns are so stupid. Wanting to continue to give support to anyone who has wasted their entire existence being stoned and addicted and never learning from the experience. No wonder they are the laughing stock of the "civilised world"What will he be snorting for American idol. I guess the next idol will be required to be a drug addled moron too.

First of all to Pagen whatever - you are an illiterate idiot. You lumped everyone into one catergory which is ridiculous and shows your ignorance. Every addict has a problem for a million different reasons. If you really cared, you would do some research. Anyway, i just wanted to give all my love to Steven because it took a lot of balls to come out and tell the world he relapsed and had a problem but did what he had to do to get it back together. I wish him all the luck in the world. AML - Mari
