Steven Tyler is not going to sugar coat it for you. Drugs are bad. And he would know.
Now this may come as a surprise to you, but the Aerosmith front man took a lot of illegal substances in his youth and his career. I know… I was just as shocked.
GQ caught up with Tyler for a piece interviewing several rockers on the use and effects of alcohol and drugs on their music. Tyler joked he once “snorted half of Peru,” and admits that many of his contemporaries were never sober, but today he knows how drugs can put everything at risk. “It works in the beginning, but it doesn’t work in the end. It takes you down. There’s nothing but jail, insanity or death,” the singer told the magazine.
By the way, I wish I wasn’t trying to be a responsible adult that is attempting to buy a house. Otherweise, I’d be planning my trip to Vegas to see Aerosmith. They’ve booked a 16-date residency at the 5,200-seat Park Theater at the Park MGM Hotel from April 6 until July 9 to celebrate their 50th anniversary and UGH, I wish I could be there not doing drugs with Steven Tyler!
