One of the Craziest Autobiographies Ever,
This review is from: Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?: The Autobiography (Paperback)
This has to be one of the strangest autobiographies I've ever read. Describing the style of writing is 'lively' is an understatement! Some parts are so jumbled you can hardly follow them, as Tyler goes off on so many tangents that sometimes the chronological order seems to have gone out the window. Other parts, however, are written with amazing clarity.
The funny thing is, despite these shifts between babble and lucid storytelling, he somehow manages to keep the story compelling all the while. I couldn't put the book down.
As you can imagine, there are lots of musings on drugs and addiction, but what I enjoyed more were the insights into the songs and the songwriting process, as well as his attachment to some of his songs. Tyler's a poet and and, in some strange way, maybe even something of a romantic at heart, and this all shines through when he writes about his music.
'Does the Noise in my Head Bother You?' is no ordinary autobiography. Perhaps only major fans of Aerosmith will appreciate it, since the writing style is as crazy as Tyler himself. It's just so damned entertaining at the same time!
