What happened to Steven Tyler?
Steven Tyler sustained an injury that resulted in “bleeding vocal cords” and was later revealed to be “more serious than initially thought,” Aerosmith postponed its 2023 tour until the following year.
The band stated in a statement posted on social media that Tyler’s doctor determined that “he fractured his larynx, which requires ongoing care,” adding that he is getting the best possible medical care He is told that ”patience is crucial considering the nature of a fracture”.
Six tour dates that were originally set for 2023 were moved to 2024, beginning in January and ending in February.
These new dates included stops in Detroit, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Toronto, Raleigh, and Cleveland. The band had planned to return by October 11 but that has since changed.
Tyler penned “Dream On,” one of Aerosmith’s hallmark tunes, before the band even existed.
Tyler first encountered future bandmates Joe Perry (guitars) and Tom Hamilton (bass), who at the time were performing in a group named the Jam Band, at a small rock concert in Sunapee, New Hampshire, in 1969. Later, Tyler claimed he was astounded by their untamed strength and attitude.
The Deuces Are Wild residency would return in June 2022, Aerosmith confirmed in March 2022. The band stated on May 24, 2022, that the June and July shows would be postponed since Tyler had checked himself into a recovery centre.
The group revealed that Tyler had a recurrence following foot surgery in order to get ready for the next gigs.
Family and relationships
Tyler granted Julia Holcomb, then 16 years old, guardianship in 1973 so that she could live with him in Boston. They spent three years dating and abusing drugs together.
The editor of Aerosmith’s autobiography Walk This Way used the alias “Diana Hall” to refer to Holcomb in an effort to hide her identity, but other sources have corroborated it.
Age differences, a rejected marriage proposal, a house fire, and a planned pregnancy that was aborted because Tyler was concerned that the smoke from the fire and medicines would cause birth problems were among the factors that caused them to split up.
Holcomb’s tale is included in the film Look Away, which is about sexual assault in the rock music industry.
