THE word toxic sits fairly easily with Aerosmith lead singer and serial, on-stage acrobat, Steve Tyler.
The flamboyant 65-year-old frontman admits he has shovelled at least $5-6 million dollars worth of marching powder up his nose.
In an interview on 60 Minutes this Sunday night, reporter Liz Hayes tells Steve she’d heard around 20 million bucks worth of cocaine had seen the inside nostrils of the ‘Demon of Screamin’.
“Realistically, 5 or 6,” says Tyler. “But it doesn’t matter. You also could say I snorted half of Peru, but it doesn’t matter.”
Tyler, who had been sober for over 20 years, had a relapse with prescription meds in the late 2000’s but was successful with treatment for that addiction in 2009.
Since coming clean, Tyler has been a judge on American Idol, always dressed in his signature flowing scarves, and says his relationship with fellow band member and guitarist, Joe Perry is back on track.
Known as the ‘toxic twins’, the pair reportedly had a falling out over Tyler’s stint on Idol but their relationship mended after they started working together when Tyler quit the show.
“We can still be toxic. We fight toxic and we play toxic,” he said.
60 Minutes will air on Channel Nine on Sunday night at 7.30pm.
