Aerosmith's Steven Tyler has checked himself into a Rehab facility for addiction to prescription painkillers. He released a statement to People.com late Tuesday night that said in part:
"With the help of my family and team of medical professionals, I am taking responsibility for the management of my pain and am eager to be back on the stage and in the recording studio with my bandmates Joe Perry, Joey Kramer, Tom Hamilton and Brad Whitford." Steven went on to tell People:
"I love Aerosmith; I love performing as the lead singer in Aerosmith," adding "I am grateful for all of the support and love I am receiving and am committed to getting things taken care of."
