Joe Perry Drops Steven Tyler Health Bombshell


Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry recently provided a health update on the band frontman, Steven Tyler.

This past January, Tyler canceled his appearance at the “Power Of Love” gala in Las Vegas due to his health issues. The Aerosmith frontman was set to make an appearance and be honored at the event, which raises money for the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health. However, his manager told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that Steven’s doctors had “instructed him to take care of himself.”

Last June, Aerosmith canceled shows as Tyler had entered a treatment program after relapsing on pain medication following foot surgery.

In a new interview with Meltdown of Detroit’s WRIF radio station, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry was asked how Steven Tyler is doing, four months after the band canceled the remaining two “Deuces Are Wild” Las Vegas residency shows due to the singer’s illness. The band was forced to pull out of its December 2 and December 5, 2022 concerts at Dolby Live in Park MGM as Tyler was unwell.

“Steven’s doing great,” Joe told WRIF. “He’s doing a hundred percent better. He had a lot of physical stuff going on that — finally — he really needed to take some more time off, unfortunately.”

Meanwhile, Tyler is seemingly seeking dismissal of a lawsuit filed in December by a woman. The woman alleged that the Aerosmith frontman had an illicit relationship with her when she was 16 years old and he was 25, saying her claims are barred in whole or in part by consent on her part.
