Product description

From the Inside Flap

The son of a classical pianist straight out of the Bronx of old Archie comics, Steven Tyler was born to be a rock star. Weaned on Cole Porter, Nat King Cole, Mick--and his beloved Janis Joplin--Tyler began tearing up the streets and the stage as a teenager before finally meeting his mutant twin and legendary partner Joe Perry. In this addictively readable memoir, told in the playful, poetic voice that is uniquely his own, Tyler unabashedly recounts the meteoric rise, fall, and rise of Aerosmith over the last three decades and riffs on the music that gives it all meaning.

Tyler tells what it's like to be a living legend and the frontman of one of the world's most revered and infamous bands--the debauchery, the money, the notoriety, the fights, the motels and hotels, the elevators, limos, buses and jets, the rehab. He reveals the spiritual side that gets lost behind the stereotype of the Sex Guy, the Drug Guy, the Demon of Screamin', the Terror of the Tropicana. And he talks about his epic romantic life and his relationship with his four children. As dazzling, bold, and out-on-the-edge as the man himself, Does the Noise in My Head Bother You? is an all-access backstage pass into this extraordinary showman's life.

Review

"[A] colorful all-access pass to the rocker's storied past...replete with hilarious Tylerisms, tales of debauchery and detox and Aerosmith's fabled climb to superstardom...as well as warmer memories of relationships with his children, wives and friends...particularly Tyler's toxic tangles with guitarist Joe Perry."--USA Today

"[Tyler's] forays into music theory are absorbing snapshots of what goes into making great songs. When Tyler is able to articulate what went into Aerosmith's music, the book becomes fascinating."--
Washington Post

"Revealing...fascinating."--
Entertainment Weekly

"Steven Tyler is an unalloyed genius."--
New York Times

"Tyler's turbulently high-spirited cheer holds it all together."--
New York Times Book Review

"[Tyler] delivers the goods...[his] surprisingly insightful and entertaining voice brings the familiar contours of this story alive.... What on the surface seems clichéd...manages somehow to rise above that and be a fun ride [and] separates a Rock Star from a merely ordinary pop star."--The Hollywood Reporter

"Roll 'em: Tyler's memoir is a wild ride. Explicit and filled with expletives, it reads like an even wilder and louder version of Richards' best-selling "Life." Tyler, 63, settles back and tells story after story about life in the "most decadent, lecherous, sexiest, nastiest band in the land.""--Lisa Ko, author of
The Leavers

"[Tyler] offers a colorful glimpse into his head as well as his life.... It's got everything you want from a guilty pleasure: obscenity, revelation, bad behavior and humor. And, oh yeah, a beat you can dance to."--NPR's All Things Considered

"Steven Tyler has a way with words...Does the Noise in My Head Bother You? Is 376 pages of pure, unfiltered Tyler...Noise is compelling stuff...Tyler's at times gripping, often hilarious voice keeps things moving...."--Rolling Stone

"Steven Tyler is one of the giants of American music, who's been influential for a whole generation of Rock-n-Roll fans around the world. Long May He Rock!"--Sir Paul McCartney

Born Steven Victor Tallarico on March 26, 1948, in Yonkers, New York, Steven Tyler is the iconic songwriter, composer, and voice of Aerosmith—America's greatest rock 'n' roll band—and is considered one of rock's most recognizable and dynamic frontmen. Rolling Stone magazine has cited him as one of the greatest singers of all time.

After coming together in Sunapee, New Hampshire, in the late sixties, five musicians made the decision to move to Boston, live together, and become the band we know today as Aerosmith: Tyler as frontman, guitarist Joe Perry, bassist Tom Hamilton, guitarist Ray Tabano, later replaced by Brad Whitford, and drummer Joey Kramer. The band has sold more than 100 million records across the globe and won numerous prestigious awards—multiple Grammys, American Music awards, Billboard awards, and MTV awards—and was inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.

Aerosmith has infiltrated rock history with their memorable appearances in Wayne's World and The Simpsons, at the halftime show at Super Bowl XXXV in 2001, and in their own Aerosmith version of Guitar Hero. Their number one single, "Don't Want to Miss a Thing," was nominated for an Academy Award for best song for the movie Armageddon. In December 2010, Tyler performed for President Obama and the First Lady in a special tribute to Sir Paul McCartney at the Kennedy Center Honors. In January 2011, Tyler joined Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson, and host Ryan Seacrest as a judge on the Fox TV phenomenon American Idol.
