In Steven Tyler‘s candid interview on ’60 Minutes,’ the ‘American Idol‘ judge revealed a lot about himself and his contenious relationship with Aerosmith. In an honest moment, Tyler admits that he suffers from attention deficit disorder (A.D.D.).

He talks about how he’s a workaholic and worries his irrational behavior could be something more serious. It doesn’t appear that he has been diagnosed by a doctor, but Tyler adds, “You know what, I’m A.D.D. personified.” When the interviewer asked if he had Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, he finished with, “I’m not sure, but I have A.D.D.”

Tyler had some  interesting things to say about his Aerosmith bandmates. He admits, “They ride my coattails … They don’t like me.” Aerosmith’s lead guitarist for the past 40 years, Joe Perry, told the ’60 Minutes’ reporter that Tyler is an extreme perfectionist. In a defensive response, Tyler reponds, ”I think my perfectionism and my busting everyone’s chops is what got this band to where it is today.”

The rest of the interview shows a glimpse of what it is like to be in Aerosmith on the day of a show. The backstage lifestyle is much different than it was during the ’70s. Tyler is shown drinking a veggie smoothie and the rest of the band drinks their share of herbal tea before hitting the stage.
