Publisher's Summary

"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."

The son of a classical pianist straight out of the Bronx of old Archie comics, Steven Tyler was born to be a rock star. Weaned on Cole Porter, Nat King Cole, Mick, and his beloved Janis Joplin, Tyler began tearing up the streets and the stage as a teenager before finally meeting his "mutant twin" and legendary partner, Joe Perry. In this addictively listenable memoir, told in the playful, poetic voice that is uniquely his own, Tyler unabashedly recounts the meteoric rise, fall, and rise of Aerosmith over the last three decades and riffs on the music that gives it all meaning.

Tyler tells what it's like to be a living legend and the frontman of one of the world's most revered and infamous bands - the debauchery, the money, the notoriety, the fights, the motels and hotels, the elevators, limos, buses and jets, the rehab. He reveals the spiritual side that "gets lost behind the stereotype of the Sex Guy, the Drug Guy, the Demon of Screamin', the Terror of the Tropicana." And he talks about his epic romantic life and his relationship with his four children.

As dazzling, bold, and out-on-the-edge as the man himself, Does the Noise in My Head Bother You? is an all-access backstage pass into this extraordinary showman's life.

    "Jeremy did an excellent job with onomatopoeia"

    Great story from the Legend Steven Tyler and read beautifully by Jeremy Davidson I will definitely check out other audio books narrated by him. I especially like how normal Steven Tyler is, even though he's a rock God Legend. I mean he is definitely out there but he has the same problems as anyone else and it really brings you down to earth listening to his story.

    "boring, couldn't finish"

    Long and boring. I couldn't get into it or through it. Childish, and way too much time spent talking about drugs and stealing shit.

    "Good but would be better if..."

    It was interesting to hear Steven's life and memories; however, it would've been better if he read his story rather than Jeremy Davidson.

    Story
    "Steven Tyler sure does loves himself."

    I've listen to the books written by Stevens band mates and it sure is interesting to get different perspective from different sides of the the story. Just listening to the way Steven rambles on and jumps from subject to subject - the way he uses endless cliche and tries to sound more intelligent than he is - made me tired. And the arrogance! Oh man!

    Now don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of Aerosmith and I recognize that Steven is probably the most important part of that band, but I totally understand where all of the friction amongst the group stems from. After listening to Joey Krammers book and Joe Perry's, it seemed like Steven was writing very defensively in answer to the claims made in his comrades two books. What seemed especially telling, is that Steven seems completely unapologetic about anything that he's ever done, while the other too do seem to have grown up through it all and now look back on everything with a little more wisdom and less bravado.

    Over all, not a well written book, but surely interesting for any fan of Aerosmith and rock history.

    "Loved it!"

    Great story behind a legend. I wanted to hear more of how Steven came up with other songs. I loved his taste in his influence when he was growing up. I wish he would've narrated his own story but it is still a must hear.
