This review is from: Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
I think I may have permanently dislocated my jaw, having had it hanging open for the past week reading this book! It is true Tyler - spiritual, poetic, mad, gob-smackingly shocking, and full of love. Having seen the band live & followed their career since the '80's, it is fascinating to read the inside view from the singer's perspective.
For the person who complained about Steven getting dates wrong - Tyler is the first to admit that years of drugs have addled his memories. I doubt he can recall much of the seventies, let alone specific dates, so give the man a break: if you want dates, go to Wikipedia! If you want humour, love, poetry, laughter, and a real insight into the heady highs & severe lows of rock, this is the book for you.
As for the comment about his constant references to his lyrics, I think you miss the point. Tyler is explaining where his lyrics come from. It is rare to get such insight into the song-writing process & the lyrics add to the reader's understanding of what goes on in Mr Tyler's head - which is, after all, the reason behind the book's title!
