Steven Tyler has checked into Los Angeles' Aurora Las Encinas Hospital—yes, the place last seen on Celebrity Rehab—for an unspecified substance abuse problem. According to TMZ.com, the Aerosmith frontman has been a vocal proponent of sobriety for two decades now, including a recent Hollywood concert that raised money for addicts in the music industry. The peak of Tyler's drug problems was during the '70s, when he and guitarist Joe Perry were downing drugs and drinks so much they were dubbed the "Toxic Twins."
A spokesperson for Aerosmith has denied any knowledge of his rehab decision.
