Book Description

May 2012

The long-awaited, never-before-told, no-holds-barred memoir from the legendary Aerosmith frontman. Finally, all the lurid tales of debauchery, sex, drugs and rock n' roll are told straight from the horse's lips as The Demon of Screamin' describes his unimaginable highs and unbelievable lows as lead singer of the biggest rock band in the world.

Prolific frontman, rock icon and sex symbol, Steven Tyler is a living legend. With his raw, sharp-edged vocals, musical versatility and unprecedented song writing skills, Tyler has, as lead singer of Aerosmith, sold millions of records and played sell-out concerts to as many as 450,000 people. Now, at last, he tells his own story, taking us on a wild rollercoaster ride through the bust-ups, binges, orgies and good old American excess in the jaw-droppingly honest, in-your-face way that only Tyler can.

Following a fateful meeting with his 'mutant twin' Joe Perry in the summer of 1970, Aerosmith was formed…and the rest, as they say, is rock history. They released their first album in 1973, and by 1976 Aerosmith had gone from being nobodies to massive to off the radar, making history as a multi-platinum, chart-topping band.

But with great success comes great excess. Nicknamed the Toxic Twins for their insatiable appetite for drugs, booze and women, Tyler and Perry got caught up in the glamour of self-destruction - smashing each other up with guitars, having seizures and passing out on stage. By 1980 it seemed that the band and its members were set to implode, but after successful stints in drug rehab, Aerosmith were back on track and better than ever.

Although he may have given up his wicked, wicked ways, Tyler still enjoys talking about the bad old days. He has so many outrageous stories to tell, and he's gonna tell them all. All the uncensored, head-spinning tales of debauchery, sex, booze, transcendence and chemical dependence you will ever want to hear. As raucous, intoxicating and edgy as his music, this is the most outrageous rock n' roll autobiography of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a character this guy is. A true showman. 12 May 2011
By Suze TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The bulk of this book is about Steven's addiction to drugs. All kinds of them. The ones you smoke, the ones you snort, the ones you inject and the ones you get on prescription. And his sex life. But that is to be expected.
What comes across through all the craziness while he was high and out of control is that the man is very spiritual, very clever, a true Professional and at heart a poet.
It's clear that he loved the mothers of all his children and that he adores all his children and that he is very proud to be a Grandpa.
There are profanities throughout the book,so if you don't like that kind of thing, prepare to be offended. Steven describes himself as a foul mouthed individual. But he's funny with it.

It also comes across loud and clear that he accepts that he is an addict and that he needed to go into rehab to get clean, but that he feels that he was singled out and probably made a scapegoat - because the rest of the Band and management team etc were just as guilty of scoring drugs at every opportunity and of bad behaviour. He obviously feels it was made out that he was the only one - and the others got away with it by blaming him for stuff when they were equally as bad, or worse.

He obviously didn't like either of Joe Perry's wives. It would be really interesting to hear Joe Perry's take on things regarding that.

He has led a life of excess. By his own admission he calculates he spent approximately 20 million dollars on drugs.

He has an entertaining way with words. I like him.
And I think he was a born rock star.
I like the dude who looks like a lady. I love his style of dress - he's fabulous. And I enjoyed this book. I even laughed out loud in several places because he is just so outrageous.

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Steven Tyler has lived the life of a hundred rock stars -- endless amounts of sex, drugs, insane behavior and ear-blisteringly awesome rock'n'roll. He's practically a rock archetype!

So I was expecting that "Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?: A Rock 'n' Roll Memoir" would be a pretty wild ride. Actually, it was more like being dragged behind a roller coaster on a little skateboard -- a wild, raucous, colorful explosion of Tyler's rock'n'roll life, constantly dancing between witty cleverness and manic exuberance.

Stephen Tyler had a fairly ordinary upbringing, which didn't stop him from being the mystical, mischievous wild-child of his New York family. And though his father was a pianist, he fell in love with rock'n'roll at an early age, cycling through several small-time bands and roaming through the wilds of 1960s New York City.

But his life REALLY changed when he met his "mutant twin," Joe Perry ("Joe is cool, Freon runs in his veins; I'm hot, hot-blooded Calabrese, a sulphur sun beast, shooting my mouth off"). And lo, rock history was made. Their band Aerosmith rapidly ascended to become one of the biggest in rock history, careening and soaring along with Tyler's own ups and downs -- marriages, children, drugs and the band's breakups and reunions.

"Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?: A Rock 'n' Roll Memoir" is very different from most rock memoirs, which are usually written when the rock star's brain has cooled down and grown up. Steven Tyler still seems to be shooting off crimson sparks in every direction, ranting and rejoicing with insane joy.

This is also how he writes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great - everything under the sun and more! 11 May 2011
By Nick C VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I like this book tons! Not because I'm a huge Aerosmith fan - nope, but that fact made me buy it in the first place, but because it does actually give a decent insight into Steven Tyler (or what he wants to show us). There is a faint band history thread throughout the book, and there's little you won't have heard in that respect from the Walk This Way book by Stephen Davies or numerous other biogs. History wise it doesn't necessarily follow the linear characteristics of time as we perceive it as Mr. T jumps from one point in time to another with the skills of a timelord! But generally there is a loose history which in places does seem a little mixed up with regards what songs were on what albums e.t.c....but maybe I need to read it again, but what we do get is Steven's side of the story and even better his musings on life, art and everything else under the sun .... and that's what makes it so interesting, on top of that with him being a vocalist, singer and songwriter the prose and wordplay employed is a joy...does it all make sense? Haha..hard to say, it's his muse rearing it's head just enjoy the flow of words.

You won't agree on his opinions of everything, you don't have to...heck... you don't have to agree with anyone, and there's a bit where he seems a bit down on the inhabitants of some rehab place called Big Sur coz it'll be full of older guys who'll as he says in not so many words, remember you from their teens and regale you with stories of how much the band meant to them. Hmmmm...yeah well I'm pushing 50 now and I've been into the band since age 14 in 1977....jeez nearly 35 years , where on earth did that time go?? Having said that I wouldn't bore the pants off someone that way anyway (at least I hope not) so I can get where he's coming from.
