The 74-year-old rocker is now said to be clean and sober and doing ‘amazingly well’ having checked out of rehab, family sources told TMZ Friday.
Per the report, Tyler is said to have released himself from the rehabilitation facility earlier this week after voluntarily staying even longer than 30 days in an effort to ensure that he would not compromise his sobriety in the future.
