“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.”

    " Absolutely loved this book!! It's a little rough around the edges but hey it's about rock n roll. After reading this, I gained a whole new respect for Steven Tyler. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darlane | 2/13/2014

    " Love steven Tyler but was a bit all over "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 2/12/2014

    " Steven Tyler's a likable person and has some incredible stories to tell, but he dictated this into a tape recorder and it reads like it. The good thing is you get a strong sense of his voice. Also, every rock and roll memoir seems to end with long stints in rehab, and it gets a little old. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rita | 2/3/2014

    " Amazing!!!! Loved every page...a perfect roller coaster ride!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherri | 2/2/2014

    " This book explains, in a funny yet interesting way, why he is the musical genius he is. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 1/12/2014

    " I changed my mind. It gets more interesting once he is sober. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Christie | 1/11/2014

    " Ramblings. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 David | 1/11/2014

    " I wanted to like this. I tried to like this. I did not like this. The writing was not good and most stories in it made no sense to me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Yodamom | 1/9/2014

    " I just could not stay focused on his story. i found many parts hard to comprehend, written in riddles/lyrics. I was lost more than not and just gave up. he is an interesting man and has a greats tory to tell it is just not my time to read it. I quit it after 1/3. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl | 12/3/2013

    " It's a miracle he's alive, but he tells a fascinating story, although a bit disjointed at times, still very readable. If you are offended by profanity this is not the book for you. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Renee | 11/26/2013

    " Thought the book was very repetitive. Sex, drugs, sex drugs. Dude, get a life! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jodie | 11/18/2013

    " I wanted to read this book so much. I was sorely disappointed. No direction, hopping about from subject to subject with no real time timescale made it hard to follow, even jibberish at times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 8/31/2013

    " Great story! What a life! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bonnie | 8/25/2013

    " Loved parts of it ...other parts were strange....I think he lives in his own little world. It was interesting but not great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa | 8/13/2013

    " Started slow however, really enjoyed the evolution of S. Tyler and kinda sitting on his shoulder. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tifinie | 7/18/2013

    " this book was good to read because it tells u about his up and down in life during arosmith and his wifes and his girlfriends "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven | 5/18/2013

    " Probably deserves a 3-star rating but I'm a huge Aerosmith fan, so that made the book better to me than it actually is... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 1/18/2013

    " Reads just like he talks. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Burdafamily | 12/24/2012

    " I think I am a generation too young for most of the musical references of this book. It was interesting to see that Steven Tyler's writing style is just as poetic/wordy/stream of consciousness as his normal speech. Also realized he is quite an intelligent guy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachelle | 12/18/2012

    " Found the first half or so of this to be a bit boring. I think being a musician living a similar life would appreciate it but some of the descriptions were a bit too draggy and fluffy for me. I did get into the second half more where he talks about the drugs and personal life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Folandk | 9/5/2012

    " Mixed opinion of this book. He is all over the place, I was unsure of the timeframes. However, a very bizarre life,and a total entertainer. Unlike any other book ever read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nicole | 8/18/2012

    " I love Steven Tyler but he had to have been high when he wrote this book "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shana | 4/28/2012

    " Had hoped for more raunchy sex, drugs, & rock & roll type stories, but the book read just like Steven Tyler talks. Or at least how he rambles on American Idol! Interesting, but there were parts where his circuitous ramblings lost me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Courtney | 10/31/2011

    " Loved this book! Steven Tyler is phenomenal! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deanna | 5/23/2011

    " It's quite a ride! You can hear him telling you this book. It should be rated X. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 5/20/2011

    " Great read. Sex, drugs and rock & roll. StevenTyler is a musical genius. He writes most of Aerosmith's lyrics and composes much of their music as well. Well worth the time and money I invested. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pete | 5/15/2011

    " ok- till the very end-- seemd to rush thru the end "

    " This book is a must for any fan of Steven Tyler's !! The only thing wrong with the book is it had to end :( "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristi | 5/13/2011

    " This is certainly a sex, drugs, and rock n roll book! He is just like he is on American Idol...all over the place. Warning...he uses very flavorful language. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dawn | 5/10/2011
