Tyler, who is one of the judges on the US talent show American Idol, said drugs were such a big part of his life that he took them on stage while he was performing with Aerosmith.
Tyler, 62 and the father of the actress Liv Tyler, went into rehab several times and admits that he is lucky to be alive considering his drug and alcohol abuse in his autobiography to be released this week.
"I blew 20 million. I snorted my Porsche, I snorted my plane, I snorted my house in that din of drugs and booze and being lost," the Telegraph quoted him as telling People mag.
"I kept my medicine cabinet on stage, in a fourteen-inch drum head, the bottom of which contained... one Dixie cup with a straw and blow in it and the other with Coca-Cola and Jack Daniels in it.
"Left to my own devices I probably would have been dead several times over," Tyler added.
