AEROSMITH Frontman On ‘The Howard Stern Show’ (Video)

AEROSMITH frontman Steven Tyler was interviewed on yesterday’s (Wednesday, June 12) edition of “The Howard Stern Show” on SiriusXM satellite radio. Tyler spoke about his infamous 2009 tumble offstage, his rampant drug use in the 1970s as well as his “American Idol” gig. A clip of his appearance can be seen below.

On his stage fall:

Tyler: “I apologized for falling off stage. I was afraid I would never be in AEROSMITH again.”

On the other guys’ reaction to his fall:

Tyler: “Well, you know and the guys were being wise-asses, ‘Well you sit on a stool,’ and I said, ‘I’ll sit on a stool Joe [Perry], if you play ukulele. I was depressed, I was crying, I couldn’t walk.”

On his battle with drugs:

Tyler: “Drugs took me down. Yes, it got us through the ’70s, if it wasn’t for Peruvian marching powder, we wouldn’t have been able to do what we did. From the ’70s to 79, we played every state except Alaska and Hawaii.”

On his “American Idol” gig:

Tyler: “I took it because I was pissed off at the band. I fell offstage and nobody called me and I was also on drugs, so I held the grudge. You know, those guys suck, but I love ’em to fucking death.”
