TNT is reporting that, during a feature on an upcoming Australian edition of ’60 Minutes’ the Aerosmith frontman was confronted with the rumor that, over the course of his career, he blew $20 million on blow. Tyler came back with a smaller figure.
“No, probably, realistically, 5 or 6, easy,” he said. “But it doesn’t matter. You also could say I snorted half of Peru, but, you know, it’s what we did.”
Last year, Aerosmith appeared on the original American version of the popular long-running news program that exposed the band’s internal squabbles. Bassist Tom Hamilton blamed reporter Lara Logan’s cleavage.
“She had a very low-cut top on,” he said. “I’m like, ‘Okay, this is sort of, ‘Get the band nervous with your cleavage and make them say stuff.’ And if you go and watch the interview, you won’t see that. So I’m like, ‘Ahh, that’s how they do it.’ They show their boobs and get you to talk about stuff. And then, there you are…It works every time.”
