Steven Tyler Dead? Wrong Again

By August 7, 2009

Follow me on:

Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler fell off a stage in South Dakota yesterday (see video) and was airlifted to a hospital for treatment of what were described as "minor injuries."

Which of course gave rise to Internet rumors of his death.

Rule of thumb: If you heard it first on Twitter or Facebook, and no mainstream news source has reported it, it's 99.99% certain to be false.

What probably is true is that Tyler's injuries are worse than initially reported. In a radio interview today, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry said that because of the accident he didn't know if the band would be able to complete its current tour. No specifics were given about Tyler's location or current condition (source: AP).
