Long before he won accolades as an American Idol judge, Steven Tyler was a bona-fide rock star, with all that that implied. In 1975, when he was in his late 20s and the lead singer for the band Aerosmith, Tyler persuaded the parents of his 14-year-old girlfriend, Julia Holcomb, to make him her legal guardian so that they could live together in Boston.

When Miss Holcomb and Tyler conceived a child, his longtime friend Ray Tabano convinced Tyler that abortion was the only solution. In the Aerosmith “autobiography,” Walk This Way (in which recollections by all the band members, and their friends and lovers, were assembled by the author Stephen Davis), Tabano says: “So they had the abortion, and it really messed Steven up because it was a boy. He … saw the whole thing and it [messed] him up big time.”

Tyler also reflects on his abortion experience in the autobiography. “It was a big crisis. It’s a major thing when you’re growing something with a woman, but they convinced us that it would never work out and would ruin our lives. … You go to the doctor and they put the needle in her belly and they squeeze the stuff in and you watch. And it comes out dead. I was pretty devastated. In my mind, I’m going, Jesus, what have I done?”

Wonder what happened to Julia Holcomb.

Never heard that story before.

Maybe he learned something.

Maybe she did too, wherever she is...

Just caught about 5 minutes of Tyler on Jay Leno a couple nights back. He's such an odd guy. Seems smart and witty, able to think on his feet. But man, that rock star life - especially coming out of the 60's and forward well through the 80's - was a ticket to immorality disguised as immortality.

I'm not surprised by this at all. Rockstars get old just like the rest of us. When one has lived a life as decadent as Steven Tyler, one has many things upon which to reflect in old age.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

The man is an example of the triumph of hope over experience.

Maybe this one won't disappoint.  The piece I read said his children like her, so ... there's that.  Every little bit helps.

Yeah.

Unfortunately, statute of limitations and all, the stupid and the guilty are still walking free...

as far as his regrets..
i did a paper in college exploring the impact of abortion on a woman's psyche and to my disappointment found no material (in the college library) of any such link.
over the years i met 3 women saying they think of it often and feel regret and one even real remorse. i'm not surprised a guy feels that way, i would if i ever made that mistake, but i wonder how such behavior never made it in the books /sarc

When I saw the age I thought how one wrong choice seems to lead to even more.  Had her parents said no--none of that would have happened.

Now he claims to have had a homosexual encounter once, but "didn't like it".

As for that girl's parents, they were almost certainly blinded by dollar signs. Ugh. That's a special kind of degeneracy, to in essence "sell" your 14 year old daughter.

 ::gaah::

why the need to publicly confess every degenerate act?
