When Stars Align –

January 07, 2020 – Lowe — dad to sons John 25, and Matthew, 27 — saw Tyler, 71, as someone who could still have fun without using drugs or alcohol, and he learned to do the same.

“I was so excited that I could still be cool and not have to be the life of the party,” Lowe told PEOPLE. “And that there was a great club of people in the world who have had fun, killed it, been there done and were willing and able to turn a new page and have an even better life. That’s actually more fun and more exciting.”

That’s why working on 9-1-1: Lone Star with Tyler’s daughter Liv meant something to Lowe. “Every time I look at Liv, it makes my heart happy,” he said.
