Billboard claims Steven Tyler recently spoke to 11 Maui Drug Court graduates and their families. He said: "Listening to you guys opened up my heart again. You touched me beyond belief, deeper than any song, deeper than any sunset. By 1984, I was 126 pounds, shooting cocaine. They weren't rehabs. They were mental institutions where people that sat next to me had dribble bibs. I had it all. I didn't care. And I hurt my family and my children and my friends. If it wasn't for the program of AA, I would have nothing. I'm a better drug addict and alcoholic than I am a musician. I got to keep it in check.
