X-ray confirms devastating news for Aerosmith's Steven Tyler.

Trending Now

Aerosmith's frontman Steven Tyler is facing a more serious condition than initially believed, according to a recent report by TMZ.

The 75-year-old rock legend, who had already canceled several tour dates due to vocal cord damage, is now said to be barely able to speak.

A Grim diagnosis

TMZ reports that Tyler's vocal cords are "mangled," based on X-ray results. The singer had flown to Boston to consult with an ENT specialist after experiencing vocal cord bleeding during a concert in Long Island.

Doctors have now advised him not to sing for at least 30 days, putting further strain on Aerosmith's already rescheduled tour.

Tyler's vocal injury reportedly occurred early in a Long Island concert, yet he chose to continue performing. This decision has now led to a more severe condition, leaving him unable to even speak properly.

Sources to TMZ say Tyler "squeaks" when attempting to talk.

The band had previously announced the postponement of several shows, and with Tyler's worsened condition, it's unclear when they will return to the stage.

The Farewell Tour, initially set to conclude in January, will now extend to a later date.

We wish Steven Tyler all the best and a speedy recovery.
