Aerosmith Frontman Steven Tyler Issues Rehab Statement

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has issued a statement clearing up rumours about his rehab stint. Apparantly he checked himself into rehab following a series of foot surgeries. You can read the statement below:

“The doctors told me the pain in my feet could be corrected but it would require a few surgeries over time. The ‘foot repair’ pain was intense, greater than I'd anticipated. The months of rehabilitative care and the painful strain of physical therapy was traumatic. I really needed a safe environment to recuperate where I could shut off my phone and get back on my feet. Make no mistake, Aerosmith has no plans to stop rocking. There’s a new album to record, then another tour.”
