Steven Tyler Opens Up About How His Addiction Battle in the '80s Led Him to Start New Charity Helping Abused Girls

It's been almost 30 years since Steven Tyler first dreamed up the title lyric to the 1989 Aerosmith hit "Janie's Got a Gun," a song about a girl who shoots her father in a desperate effort to end his sexual abuse. Now the tune, which derived from Tyler's own experience meeting victims of sexual abuse in rehab while struggling to overcome his addictions in the '80s, has new legs, thanks to the rocker's Janie's Fund, a foundation that helps provide resources for victims in need. "I think this is what I was born to do," Tyler tells People in this week's issue. »
