Nothing but the tooth! Steven Tyler reveals post fall injuries as he insists he has NOT fallen off the wagon

He has struggled with addiction problems for most of his life but this morning Steven Tyler spoke out to refute claims that his horrific fall on Tuesday was caused by intoxication.
The 63-year-old Aerosmith front man called in to The Today Show to discuss the issue with host Matt Lauer and revealed an image of himself taken shortly after the fall in which he sported broken teeth and a nasty black eye.
Tyler, who fell whilst taking a shower, first entered rehab back in 1984 but insists that this time he was completely sober.

'I went in looking like Baryshnikov,and walked out looking like [boxer] Leon Spinks!' her told Lauer.
'Just quite frankly I passed out... I fell on my face, I woke up with the water running on me, not knowing where the hell I was.'
And when Lauer approached the subject of a relapse, the veteran rockstar was only too happy to clear the air.
'Being in the program I'm in, it's something we have to accept. I went public with my problems only to address them straight on -- people thinking [I relapsed] is natural and normal.'
'It still bothers me a little, but it's something I'll have to deal with the rest of my life.'

Resilient: The 63-year-old lost two teeth in the accident, but they were replaced by a Paraguayan dentist yesterday

Clearly It takes more than a nasty knock to keep the Demon Of Screamin' down, and last night Steven Tyler proved his resilience.
The 63-year-old took to the stage in Paraguay for a make-up concert to replace the one he missed the previous night due to a nasty shower fall.
'I wore my sunglasses for my first song, took 'em off and the crowd roared,' he said. 'Not only did I break my face but we broke the house record -- life is beautiful Matt!'
Tyler has a black eye and had two new teeth implanted in the wake of the accident for which he was hospitalised, meaning that he had to cancel the original concert.
The singer performed at the Jockey Club in Asuncion with all his usual gusto, clearly not allowing his injuries to distract him from the show.

Lead guitarist Joe Perry tweeted: 'Steven even played harp with his busted lip my mind was blown. He put on one of his best shows ever. Aerosmith rocks on.'
'Gotta hand it to Steven for playing the show tonight considering how sick was from food poisoning the night before. He's amazing.'
Steven suffered a cut on his forehead and knocked out two teeth after he fell in a hotel shower during a stop on Aerosmith’s South American tour.
Steven was taken to hospital for a CT and walked out by himself a few hours later.

Keen to keep going: Steven had to cancel a North American tour in 2009 after he fell off stage in South Dakota

The rocker was obviously keen not to repeat the events of two years ago when a broken shoulder forced the band to scrap a North American tour, after he fell off stage in South Dakota.
Nicolas Garzia, whose firm organized the Paraguay gig, suggested that the fall was due to a bout of food poisoning that caused Tyler to be disorientated and dehydrated.
Tyler received stitches and had emergency dental work done during a nearly four-hour stay at the La Costa medical center in Paraguay's capital, according to a hospital statement
