steven tyler has hepatitis C

In exclusive interview with Access Hollywood, Steven Tyler, admitted he is suffering from hepatitis C for couple of years now. I’m guessing he probably contracted the disease while being a drug addict. 

"I've been pretty quiet about this. The band took a break about three years ago. … [My doctor] said now is the time, and its 11 months of chemotherapy" — actually, interferon, which strengthens the immune system — "so I went on that, and it about killed me. You know, it really hurt. It was a bad, bad period. I'm in AA, and I tried to go three, four, five months with nothing, and it about killed me. It's the silent killer," Tyler says. "I may go on Oprah and talk about this."

Poor Steven, hope he'll manage to get out of this, as far as I remember Pamela Anderson had it some time ago, maybe she has some words of wisdom for him.
