Aerosmith bassist writing autobiography

Writing your autobiography: it’s all the rage among musician-types these days.

Keith Richards' “Life”
really lifted the profile of rock bios last fall, and many others have been put in motion and/or released since then.

Now, another book will be added to the rock n’ roll bio list, at some point, as Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton tells the Boston Heraldthat he’s in the throes of writing a tell-all about life as a rock ’n’ roll man.

“I’ve written a few chapters of something I hope will turn into a fun read,” Hamilton told the Track. “It’s not a book about who (slept with) who and how much coke everyone snorted. It will be inspirational and full of excitement and exhilaration — along with lies, cheating sex, drugs and everything everyone really wants to read about.”

Hamilton said the book likely will be a fictionalized version of his memoirs of the past 40 years of rockin’ with the Bad Boys of Boston. “I’d like to dream up my own characters and situations but still be able to tell the personal side, the war stories.”

“I haven’t really said anything publicly until now about it,” Hamilton added. “I wanted to get enough done so that I have at least established a voice before talking to publishers or editors.”

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler’s autobiography, “Does The Noise In My Head Bother You?” is due out in May.
