Steven isn’t the only member of Aerosmith to suffer a health scare in recent years. Bassist Tom Hamilton has been treated for throat cancer, and drummer Joey Kramer had heart surgery to fix a blockage. Then just last year, guitarist Joe Perry collapsed on stage while performing with his band Hollywood Vampires.
