Steven Tyler’s autobiography, “Does The Noise In My Head Bother You?”, is scheduled for release on October 27, 2009. The book traces Tyler’s youth in the Bronx, 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, his epic romantic life, his relationship with his four children (including actress Liv Tyler and actress and author Mia 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 a reader could ask for.
Commented Tyler: “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.”
Ecco, an imprint of HarperCollins, reportedly paid more than $2 million for the rights to publish Tyler’s autobiography.
Ecco publisher Daniel Halperin, a self-described longtime AEROSMITH fan, edited the book.
Tyler and his fellow band members previously came out with a memoir titled “Walk This Way: The Autobiography of Aerosmith” in 2003.
With twenty-one Billboard Top 40 hits, including “Walk This Way”, “Angel”, “Dream On”, and “Dude (Looks Like A Lady)”, AEROSMITH has sold 150 million albums worldwide. The band, which has sold 66 million albums in the United States alone, holds the record for most gold and multi-platinum albums by an American group.
