It’s certainly not unusual to hear about rock stars entering rehab, but recent news that Steven Tyler of Aerosmith had checked into rehab turned into a story that most people probably did not expect.
As it turns out, Tyler checked into a rehabilitation facility for physical therapy following a series of foot surgeries. The need for surgery was reported to be a result of the energetic performer’s activities on stage.
Since the physical therapy that was required following the surgeries turned out to be more painful than he anticipated, Tyler decided that checking into a rehab facility would afford him the opportunity to “shut off my phone and get back on my feet.”
For the sake of any fans that might be fearful that the legendary rocker might be slowing down or even planning to hang up his microphone, Tyler says, “Make no mistake,” he said, “Aerosmith has no plans to stop rocking. There’s a new album to record, then another tour.”
