in the saddle in rehab again - the Aerosmith singer has entered a facility for "pain management and an addiction to prescription painkillers," reports People mag.
In a statement, the 61-year-old rocker says, "With the help of my family and team of medical professionals, I am taking responsibility for the management of my pain and am eager to be back on the stage and in the recording studio with my bandmates Joe Perry, Joey Kramer, Tom Hamilton and Brad Whitford."
