"I''ve been mythicized, Mick-icized, eulogized and fooligized,
I''ve been Cole-Portered and farmer''s-daughtered, I''ve been Led
Zepped and 12-stepped. I''m a rhyming fool and so cool that me,
Fritz the Cat, and Mohair Sam are the baddest cats that am. I have
so many outrageous stories, too many, and I''m gonna tell ''em all.
All the unexpurgated, brain-jangling tales of debauchery, sex &
drugs, transcendence & chemical dependence you will ever want
The son of a classical pianist straight out of the Bronx of old
Archie comics, Steven Tyler was born to be a rock star. Weaned on
Cole Porter, Nat King Cole, Mick-and his beloved Janis Joplin-Tyler
began tearing up the streets and the stage as a teenager before
finally meeting his "mutant twin" and legendary partner Joe Perry.
In this addictively readable memoir, told in the playful, poetic
voice that is uniquely his own, Tyler unabashedly recounts the
meteoric rise, fall, and rise of Aerosmith over the last three
decades and riffs on the music that gives it all meaning.
Tyler tells what it''s like to be a living legend and the
frontman of one of the world''s most revered and infamous bands-the
debauchery, the money, the notoriety, the fights, the motels and
hotels, the elevators, limos, buses and jets, the rehab. He reveals
the spiritual side that "gets lost behind the stereotype of the Sex
Guy, the Drug Guy, the Demon of Screamin'', the Terror of the
Tropicana." And he talks about his epic romantic life and his
relationship with his four children. As dazzling, bold, and
out-on-the-edge as the man himself, Does the Noise in My Head
Bother You? is an all-access backstage pass into this
extraordinary showman''s life.
