Steven Tyler Sang At A Rehab, And His Choice Of Song Put Tears In My Eyes.
Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is no stranger to alcohol and drug addiction. Just a few years ago, he told Maui Drug Court graduates, "I'm a better drug addict and alcoholic than I am a musician. I got to keep in check.”
The rockstar confessed that he started getting high in the 1960s. He was first admitted to a rehabilitation center in 1984—at the time, he was shooting cocaine and at a dangerously low weight of 126 pounds.
"I had it all. I didn't care. And I hurt my family and my children and my friends," he continued. "If it wasn't for the program of AA, I would have nothing."
Tyler recently visited the Recovery Unplugged Drug Treatment Center to perform the 1993 hit "Amazing" for another group of clients. The 67-year-old can still belt his heart out with lyrics like, "It's Amazing / When the moment arrives that you know you'll be alright / It's Amazing / And I'm sayin' a prayer for the desperate hearts tonight."
See the heartfelt performance below, and share it with someone who could benefit from it.
