One of the “loves” of my life, Steven Tyler has decided to take a trip to rehab to kick his painkiller addiction. The poor guy must have been in a lot of pain after that last spill he took off the stage.
Thankfully Steven Tyler has his priorities straight,
“With the help of my family and team of medical professionals, I am taking responsibility for the management of my pain and am eager to be back on the stage and in the recording studio with my bandmates. I love Aerosmith; I love performing as the lead singer in Aerosmith,” he added. “I am grateful for all of the support and love I am receiving and am committed to getting things taken care of.”
Steven’s daughter, Liv Tyler has been supporting him all the way,
“My family and I are in complete support of my dad’s decision to seek treatment. He is a courageous man. We love him and are so proud that he is getting help to balance his pain management, not just for himself but for his family, friends and fans.”
The doctors that have been treating him for the pain have said that Steven Tyler will have to undergo surgeries on his feet and knees,
“Managing and controlling his pain has been challenging, and despite our use of alternative therapies and the creation of custom shoes built by a team of engineers from Timberland, Steven’s pain has progressed,” said McKeon, who also is team doctor for the Boston Celtics. “The balance between managing his pain and avoiding addiction is tenuous and difficult and his bravery in persevering through rigorous touring is admirable. As with many athletes, Steven put his performance first as he struggled with acute pain for years.”
I am grateful that he is getting things under control now. There are a lot of haters out there pointing fingers, but that’s what haters do. Point fingers, trying to forget about all of their imperfections. I am seeing that sad trait all too much since Brittany Murphy’s death, really pathetic people.
Steven Tyler is the heart and soul of Aerosmith, he will be back. I stand behind him and the band as do all of their loyal fans. Get well soon, Steven. Merry Christmas!
