As a new American Idol judge, Steven Tyler is the toast of the town. But as a lifelong rock and roller and former alcohol abuser, he also has to be careful about keeping those toasts of the non-alcoholic variety.

Case in point: Steven recently attended the super-swank Style Hollywood Oscar Suite. But the rocker-in-recovery immediately asked that the Moreno champagne bar be covered with a tarp. Can’t be too careful!

Other than that, Steven and girlfriend Erin Brady didn’t hold back availing themselves of the finer things. They both received free facials – during which Steven exclaimed, “This is my ‘Oh my God!’ moment. It’s better than sex!” They also ate Hansen cake, and sipped on Lady Snow’s 1000 Year Old Tea. Oh, and swag? Yeah, they got plenty of that, too. Steven took five Crow watches in every color and a silver multi-cross from Amyn the Jeweler.

Good to see Steven is taking his recovery serious. And that he’s taking full advantage of the perks of being a TV star!
