4.0 out of 5 stars Don't give up at the start, 7 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
If you've picked this up, read the first page, felt lost and put it down again I recommend giving it another go. The first 6 pages are fairly incomprehensible. This recurs now and then throughout the book and the more it happens the more you understand about Tyler's character. The problem is he's trying to explain how much he loves music.....REALLY loves music. My problem is I'm an engineer and I'm never going to understand what he means when he comes out with descriptions like 'when you make music and hit a chord that resonates it forms shapes and colours that reverberate across the universe' yada yada yada. OK, Steven. I'll meet you on the other side of this explanation somewhere in about 5 pages time. When he calms down and actually starts talking about his life (about Page 7) its pretty gripping stuff. I will say though that anyone who writes an autobiography and doesn't give up the story of the losing of his virginity is copping out. The stuff about the conflicts within Aerosmith is fascinating as is the complicated relationship between him and his guitarist Joe Perry. The ostracism of Tyler over getting clean when the rest of the band weren't sounds very similar to what happened to Vince Neil of Motley Crue too. Overall, definitely worth a read, just bear with the conversational style and the fact that he doesn't always make a lot of sense, not to a clean living, sober engineer anyway.
