Hair feathers!  Musician and American Idol judge, Steven Tyler, is vocalizing his appreciation of former first lady Betty Ford.

According to, Steven paid tribute to Mrs. Ford by saying, "Betty Ford took a risk at one of the worst times of her life and came forward to share a message of recovery in order to serve others," said Tyler. "Her vision, passion and amazing heart led to the Betty Ford Center, the gold standard of treatment facilities. She will be missed, but her work in recovery will live on." 

Many more artists and actors are coming forward to ditto Tyler's comment adding that her clinic is one of few that treats the entire person, family included!

Those who have worked closely with the first lady have also shared how involved Betty was in talking with clients who needed that extra measure of encouragement.
