Steven Tyler: Autobiography On Sale In May
The quintessential rock megastar, Aerosmith front man and lead singer Steven Tyler has written his long awaited autobiography. "Does The Noise In My Head Bother You?" offers an in-depth look into the rock and style icon’s legendary life and career.
Widely known as "America’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band", Aerosmith is the bestselling American hard rock band of all time. Steven Tyler, a household name around the world, is famed for his distinctive vocals, hit songs and videos, on-stage acrobatics, his bright, colorful outfits with his trademark scarves hanging from his microphone stand, and his widely reported spells in rehab for drug and alcohol addiction.
Aerosmith members have begun writing the next album expected for release in 2011 and the band will tour Japan and South America later in the year. Dates and information to follow soon.
With twenty-one Billboard Top 40 hits, Aerosmith has sold a staggering 66 million albums in the U.S. and 150 million albums worldwide. They hold the record for the most gold and multi-platinum albums by an American group. Hits include "Walk this Way", "Dude (Looks Like a Lady)", "Rats In he Cellar" and "Love in an Elevator". After more than 40 years with the band, Tyler recently was included among Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Singers.
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.”
Halpern adds, “Mr. Tyler is a man with a past and a present, and now he’s a man with a relevant, important story to tell. As a rock star he’s done it all, high to low, under and over, always living on the edge… As an avid Aerosmith fan since the 70s, I’ve been waiting a long time for Steven to tell, in his own words, why he “walks this way.”
As raucous, intoxicating and edgy as his music,"Does The Noise In My Head Bother You?" is an outrageous rock n' roll autobiography that is also a must-have for any Steven Tyler and Aerosmith.
