Aging Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler fell off the stage in South Dakota yesterday. Sources close to the elderly singer/screamer blame poor lighting, difficulty in adjusting to new bi-focals and possible dizziness related to confusion over new dosing instructions for his cholesterol medication as possible causes for the mishap.
Tyler himself, in an unusually candid statement released shortly after the mishap, cited his failure to "Walk This Way" as the proximate cause of his injury. Ironically, he himself has issued the warning on multiple occasions to his legions of adoring fans.
Tyler will soon be eligible for social security payments; sources close to the entertainer expressed their hope that he will take his benefits, retire from his hazardous occupation and find a hobby more suited to a man of his years.
