Steven Tyler: more details released about his autobiography

“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

Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler's new autobiography, “Does The Noise In My Head Bother You?,” is scheduled for release on May 11.

The 352-page hardcover 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.

Tyler spent the last few years working on his book, which he says will be more personal than the material covered in the band 2003 autobiography, “Walk This Way: The Autobiography Of Aerosmith.”

"This is not just my take,” says Tyler, “This is the unbridled truth, the in-your-face, up-close and prodigious tale of Steven Tyler straight from the horse's lips."

HarperCollins reportedly paid more than $2 million for the rights to publish Tyler's autobiography.
