In a recent interview with Haute Living magazine, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler opened up about what it was like to be sent to rehab in the ’80s.
“Our first managers loved that we were stoned. Our record label, they loved that we were stoned ’cause they knew we weren’t looking at any of the money transactions,” Tyler said. “The early ’80s were terrible, and drugs took us down. I was the first one to get treatment.”
Tyler shared that he remained angry with his bandmates for sending him away to a rehabilitation center to get treatment for his heroin addiction while they “went on vacation.”
Although it took him several years to get over that anger, he admitted that he is now grateful for that decision taken by his bandmates; “I am grateful and owe a thanks to them for my sobriety,” he said.
