There's been some speculation lately about Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler - specifically, whether or not the two-year hiatus from Aerosmith is true, how he and his band mates are getting along, and how - if at all - any of it is related to his rumored current drug abuse.

While many people view these tell-alls as ways for the celebs to exploit their lives or the lives of others in order to make a quick buck, lots of famous folk actually write them because a) they provide a sort of therapeutic release, and b) they genuinely do hope their stories will help others.
