5.0 out of 5 stars What a character this guy is. A true showman., 12 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
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.
Also, the hardback version of this book is really nice. The photos are great. The book beneath the dustcover is shiny and has a series of photos of him at the mic. Iconic images of an iconic rock star.

For me, the Demon of Screamin' has delivered a very enjoyable read.

Rock on Mister Tallarico.
May you live to be a hundred.
