Despite some rumors to the contrary, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is not dead – just banged up a bit. Tyler fell off a stage at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally earlier this week and suffered injuries to his head, neck and shoulders.
Tyler broke his shoulder and cut up his head and back when he accidently stepped backward off a stage at Sturgis during a performance. Billie Perry, wife of Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry, posted on Twitter that Tyler “hit his head and back” and “is very sore.”
Aerosmith has cancelled one gig in Winnipeg, Canada so far and more tour dates may be cancelled or delayed due to Tyler’s injuries.
New video of Steven Tyler falling off stage has now surfaced on YouTube. Watch it below:
