“Steven Tyler is one of the giants of American music, who’s been influential for a whole generation of Rock ’n’ Roll fans around the world. Long May He Rock!”
—Sir Paul McCartney

Does the Noise in My Head Bother You? is the rock memoir to end all rock memoirs — the straight-up, no-holds-barred story of Grammy Award-winning, Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductee, and all around superstar legend Steven Tyler, lead singer of Aerosmith (and celebrity judge on American Idol).

The rock and roll epic that is Tyler’s life begins with Tyler’s youth in the Bronx, tracing his early music career and influences, his legendary partnership with Joe Perry, the meteoric rise, fall, and rise of Aerosmith over the last three decades, their music, Tyler’s battles with substance abuse, his epic romantic life, his relationship with his four children (including actress Liv Tyler), life on the road and in the spotlight, the economics of the rock star business --and all the sex, drugs, and rock and roll that anyone could ask for.

In Tyler’s own words: “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 to hear. And this is not just my take, this is the unbridled truth, the in-your-face, up-close and prodigious tale of Steven Tyler straight from the horse’s lips.”

Born Steven Victor Tallarico on March 26, 1948, in Yonkers, New York, Steven Tyler is the iconic songwriter, composer, and voice of Aerosmith—America's greatest rock 'n' roll band—and is considered one of rock's most recognizable and dynamic frontmen.Rolling Stonemagazine has cited him as one of the greatest singers of all time.After c...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rocker Tells All! The most candid of the recent spate of rocker biographies to come out of late. Yes, Steven Tyler's life has been a romp of sex, rock' n roll and way too much sex. Best part of Aerosmith was their first six releases under Columbia Records since their peak has gracefully ebbed away. I wanted to know more about the origin and creativity of their songs and a bit less about Steven's drug infested life. Still, a great funny and insightful book.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Save Your Time & Money The best part of the book is the cover. The pictures inside are so-so, He is mildly amusing and original but generally narcississtic, insecure, and vapid. About as deep as a fingernail. Very disappointing. Thought he was more than a voice after American Idol. I was wrong.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shockingly funny...great I was never much of an Aerosmith fan and knew nothing of Steven Tyler. I laughed a lot when I read this book, he is funny and tells it like it is...everything you needed to know about Tyler and his band is right in your face...a very good read
