STEVEN TYLER THINKS THAT REHAB IS FOR QUITTERS
This shittiest papparazi photo ever was taken this past Tuesday night at The Tilted Kilt in Palm Desert by Mike “DJ Kermie” May.
It’s been thirty days since we heard that Steven Tyler was checking into rehab, which means that he may have wrapped up his twenty-eight days earlier this week. Then again, I seem to recall James Hetfield being in rehab for the amount of time some bands spend on multiple album cycles, so I guess that twenty-eight days thing isn’t written in stone.
Either way, I don’t take it as a good sign of Steven Tyler’s health that he was spotted in a bar – excuse me, a “pub” – on Tuesday evening.
Especially since, according to The Desert Sun, Tyler “was accompanied by a management team, including a publicist who said the one-time Boston bad boy wasn’t going to sing and no photos would be allowed.” ‘Cause that seems to suggest one of two possibilities:
- Tyler is surrounded by hangers-on who are enabling him, but don’t want anyone to know that he’s still drinking.
- Tyler, who was actually in rehab for pain killers and not booze, wasn’t drinking, and this was just the most ill-conceived PR stunt ever.
We’ll see what this means for the making of Aerosmith’s next good album, which is set for release sometime in never.
