And there was to be more misery for the bedeviled frontman. In 2008 Tyler checked into an L.A. rehab facility to recover from various leg surgeries. In 2009 he busted his shoulder after falling off stage at a show in South Dakota. And in 2011 the singer injured his face and lost several teeth after slipping in his hotel shower.
Perhaps realizing that they were all getting on a bit, then, Aerosmith subsequently confirmed an amicable split in 2016. Tyler told interviewer Howard Stern, “I love this band, I really do, and I want to squash every thought that anybody might have about this.” The group then announced that in 2017 they would be heading out on one last tour.
