AEROSMITH star Steven Tyler is to be honoured for his example as a drug abuser who managed to clean up his act.

The rocker has been announced as this year's (03) recipient of THE MUSICIANS ASSISTANCE PROGRAMME prize for fighting his drug demons.

The former drug addict and Aerosmith sidekick Joe Perry were dubbed THE TOXIC TWINS in the 1970s for their heavy use of narcotics.

Tyler, who has been sober for over 20 years, will receive his latest honour at a Beverly Hills dinner, hosted by Sharon Osbourne, next month (NOV03).
