We Don't Know Who Had It Worse: Steven Tyler's Face, Or The Hotel Shower
"You can't handle the tooth," 63-year-old Steven Tyler joked to Matt Lauer on the Today Show earlier this morning, when the rock star phoned in from South America to explain his recent injury. Apparently, the singer was battling "food poisoning" (yeah right, and his daughter Liv Tyler is actually an Elf Princess) when he lost his balance and fell face first into the shower floor.
Tyler was staying at the Bourbon Hotel in Paraguay, and thanks to his tour manager, located a nearby hospital to stitch up his eye, re-align his face, and fix his broken tooth. Now, that must have been a pretty heavy fall. And knowing what we know, Mr. Tyler can be a little accident prone. So we have to wonder. Who do you think suffered more damage: Steven Tyler's face, or the shower stall?
Aerosmith's lead guitarist, Joe Perry, took to Twitter to support his bandmate the night of the re-scheduled Asuncion concert: "Steven even played harp with his busted lip my mind was blown. He put on one of his best shows ever."
Meanwhile, a bellboy at the hotel, Gustavo Perez, was quoted by The Daily Mail as saying only, "he had a nasty fall." Tyler got a little more specific while on the phone with Matt Lauer, describing:
"I fell on my face. I just passed out and I woke up with the water running on me."
If the hotel has any marketing savvy, they'll leverage this incident to their advantage, just like we've seen over at the Courtyard By Marriott Solana Beach. Steven Tyler Tooth Repair packages, anyone?
