"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 readable 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.

2.0 Does the Noise in my Head Bother You?
So, I actually finished it. I know, I'm a glutton for punishment. I just wanted to count it toward my reading goal since I had already read half of it. I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 because I actually finished it. If I hadn't been able to finish it and it ended up in the trash, or the street (c...

3.0 Written just like he talks & sings -what will he say next?
Opening line: “Life is short. Break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that makes you smile.” Reading about rock stars and their insane lives of excess is one of my guilty pleasures. I find the rise to success intriguing and then there are alw...

3.0 Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?
Although I enjoyed some of their music I had not been an over-the-top Aerosmith fan. When I started this book I knew nothing about Steve Tyler, so everything in the book was a revelation. Mr. Tyler tells his story with apparent honesty, humour and sometimes sorrow. Most definitely a rock’n roll m...

1.0 Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?: A Rock 'n' Roll Memoir
This book gave me a headache every time I picked it up. It's written just the way he talks and had I known that I would have never bothered in the first place because he sounds like an idiot to me whenever he opens his mouth....unless he's singing. I skimmed parts of this because I just couldn't s...
