Mia Tyler, the daughter of Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, made a statement bringing down rumors that her dad is dead.
She told TMZ:
THE DEMON OF SCREAMIN IS NOT DEAD.
Yes it’s true my dad walked the wrong way and landed on his head. He broke his left shoulder and had to get a few stitches on his noggin. He is now at home resting and will be back on his feet just as soon as he can to rock the world once more.
Steven Tyler was airlifted to a hospital on August 5 after falling off the stage at a concert in South Dakota and suffering minor injuries on the head, neck and shoulders. Tyler was dancing around the stage while performing the song “Love in an Elevator.” While jumping around the catwalk on the stage, the veteran rocker fell backward onto some fans. The concert was then stopped and the 61-year-old Tyler was quickly rushed to the nearby hospital Rapid City Regional Hospital.
