Tyler's new autobiography, "Does The Noise In My Head Bother You?", is being released today (Tuesday, May 3) as a 400-page hardcover.
"Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?" is the rock memoir to end all rock memoirs — the straight-up, no-holds-barred life of Grammy Award-winning, Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame incductee, and all-around superstar legend Steven Tyler, lead singer of AEROSMITH (and celebrity judge on "American Idol"). This is it — "the unbridled truth, the in-your-face, up-close and prodigious tale of Steven Tyler straight from the horse's lips" — as Tyler tells all, from the early years through the glory days, "All the unexpurgated, brain-jangling tales of debauchery, sex and drugs and transcendence you will ever want to hear."
"Does The Noise In My Head Bother You?" traces Tyler's youth in the Bronx, his early music career and influences, his legendary partnership with Joe Perry, the meteoric rise, fall, and rise of AEROSMITH over the last three decades, their music, his epic romantic life, his relationship with his four children (including actress Liv Tyler and actress and author Mia Tyler) life on the road and in the spotlight, the economics of the rock star business — and all the sex, drugs, and rock and roll a reader could ask for.
