Steven Tyler`s bandmates fear he is taking drugs again
The future of Aerosmith has been thrown into doubt after the singer said he wanted to take a year off to pursue a solo career, but the frontman`s bandmates are "suspicious" of his current behaviour.
Guitarist Brad Whitford said: "I suspect there`s a lot more going on than we know about. He has a well-documented history of drug abuse, and I find myself very suspicious. I haven`t seen him do this or have any personal knowledge, but the isolation is very typical of addictive behaviour, and his - what I call - irrational behaviour."
Drummer Joey Kramer also urged 61-year-old Steven - whose daughter is Hollywood actress Liv Tyler - to seek help and "get healthy".
Joey said: "Steven has made some poor choices as of late, and he`s got some bad influences around him, and I think that for the most part he`s his own worst enemy. I just really hope that Steven puts the focus on Steven and gets healthy."
A spokesperson for the `Crazy` singer - who gave up heroin after completing a stint in rehab in 1986 - is not commenting on the drug claims and insists Steven is busy writing a book.
