Aerosmith frontman-turned country singer Steven Tyler has been through hell and back, and he's lived to tell the story.
He stopped by Howard Stern's Sirius XM Radio show to talk about his new single, "Red, White & You" and the two old friends talked about a little more than just music.
"I was a humungous to-die-for drug addict," Tyler confessed.
As Aerosmith's popularity rose in the 70s and 80s, so did Tyler's drug and alcohol addiction. He went to rehab multiple times and didn't get sober until 1988.
Tyler spoke about how easy it was to obtain drugs and because of his celebrity status, he rarely paid for them.
When asked if he ever almost died, Tyler admitted that he did. "Three or four times," he said. These near-death experiences, where his friends had to put him in the bathtub, surprisingly weren't a wake-up call.
"Life is too good," he says. "You keep snorting and drinking and taking pills and you never knew it was too much."
Listen to his interview below.
Tyler released "Red, White & You" on January 21st as a follow up to his country debut, "Love Is Your Name".
