Well, you know what they say "you cant teach an old dog new a trick." I forget what the numbers are, but the chances of relapse are extremly high for those who have to go to rehab even once.

That's what happens sometimes. In a way I'm shocked' but he was sober for a good while. At least he had the frame of mind to know he needed help.

Cruor, it goes both ways really. My boss as much as I respect the man is a great example. Yeah I have been back on my cell for awhile. The past week has my brain on the off side though.

This isn't very specific, he probably isn't blowing coke or any sh** like that. He's probably on some pain killers and can afford to go to rehab once his script ran out.

It's amazing these guys just cant get rid off all that junk... then again, from what I hear, these guys have never been 100% clean, even in the late 80s/ early 90s

These guys are crap. Steven Tyler couldn't stand the immense pressure of Guitar Hero fame, so his ugly a$$ fell off the wagon. I don't feel sorry for millionaires with drug addiction. You either change and move on, or you OD and die. Tough shxt. I hope that while he's in rehab he vomits so hard, he shxts his underwears.

wow ...people sure can be crule.I know steven tyler.We talked recovery many times.He had a strong program and stayed in touch with his sponser,even while on tour.he had 20 years of continuous sobriety.He has helped many other people find there way into sobriety....we addicts are very human.and there is always the chance of of a realaps.its a daily battle for most of us.I also work in the music biz-so I know how hard the lifestyle can become.Steven is a strong individual who will be back,to entertian you people.And Im quite sure he will recognize that sometimes relaps can be a gift.to remind us ,once again,that paticular road is not the one we want to be on.im sure i will be speaking with steven soon.as for all of you who know nothing about the program of NA or AA,please refrain from the cruel comments.school yourself instead.cruel comments on issues such as this are never helpful.

Well, tell Steven Tyler that CrawfordTexasJingoJango says to go get fxcked. Smack him across his big-ass lips for me and tell him that was for "Livin' On The Edge". He blows, he's washed-up, his band is stale, and the only thing that's gonna save their old asses is the Guitar Hero deal they cut. f*** Steven Tyler. I hope the rest of his life is an endless cycle of relapses. If he stays in rehab, at least we won't have to hear him sing anymore. Tell him that CrawfordTexasJingoJango doesn't feel sorry for him, and I hope someone sneaks a whole bottle of Advil in there so that flabby old pvssy can try to OD on acetominophen. Cry me a river. You hung out with him? I feel sorry for you. I bet he smells like Lemmy's a$$hole.

this guy shows how immature a rockstar can be, he should have given up the drugs/booze/painkillers/sirrup...or whatever he's taking years ago.
the mind of the rockstar can be a disturbing thing, I mean he's a grandmother for god's sake!

Then again it doesn't say why he entered the rehab. Could be "just" a painkiller addiction. I for one do have sympathy for people with substance problems. As for CTJJ, man, I'm not sure what your point is anymore. Do you hate drug users, love drugs ... ?? or what? Your "rot in peace" Scott Weiland post was already pretty harsh. Then on the NIN postings you suggested that bands/artists can't make great music after cleaning up. I'm a bit confused here. So, keep on using drugs, but don't try to kick, and if you do and succeed, you're useless after that?

Kristine you'll have to excuse Crawford, he has no life,he has no taste in music, and yeah i'd bet he would have another beer. Ive been on this site for almost 2 years now and he never has ne thing nice to say. I learned a long time ago to ignore the bottom feeders on this site and hes the leader of that clan.
