JOE PERYY KNOWS SURPRISINGLY LITTLE ABOUT STEVEN TYLER’S REHAB STINT:
May 23, 2008
The Aerosmith camp has been tight-lipped about reports that after two decades of clean living, 60-year-old frontman Steven Tyler has checked himself into a drug rehab clinic in Pasadena, California. Now guitarist Joe Perry is breaking the silence … not that he knows (or will reveal) much about the situation.
“I actually haven’t talked to [Steven] in a while,” Perry tells Blender during in an interview to promote the upcoming Guitar Hero: Aerosmith game. “We spend most of our time off the road split up — that’s just how it goes.” Does he know what Tyler’s in rehab for? “I’m not sure, but I hope he’s doing OK.”
Meanwhile, Perry is undergoing his own recovery — from a recent total knee-replacement surgery. “I’m about eight or nine weeks out from it,” he says. “I still walk with a cane, but I’ll be up and running probably within the next month. We have some press to do for Guitar Hero and hopefully I’ll be able to make some of those events.”
