Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler was once asked about the rumor that during a gig one night the band had played just one song ("Train Kept a-Rollin'") before leaving the stage under the mistaken impression that they had performed a whole show. "Oh, no," Tyler replied. "That's what blithering idiots do. We were just drug addicts."
[Guitarist Joe Perry also squelched a drug-related rumor. He did not do so much heroin before his wedding (to Elissa Jerret in 1975) that he almost puked on the cake. He did the heroin, he agreed, " [but] I was a very fastidious junkie."]
