Book Review: Steven Tyler's Autobiography: "Does the Noise In My Head Bother You?"
Steven Tyler is highly intelligent as well as talented. He knew what he wanted and he was willing to pay the price to get it. Tyler's description of his important and complicated relationship with his creative partner Joe Perry was fascinating. Seems like most of the legendary rock bands of the 60's, 70's and 80's were defined by at least one strong partnership like Paul and John and Mick & Keith and of course, Tyler and Perry.
This is the third "Rock Star" autobiography that I have read recently and still don't understand why with all of their outstanding musical and performing talents they all needed to immerse themselves in drugs and alcohol to reach their creative highs? It's interesting to note that all three, Keith, Eric and Steven have been clean for years now and are still producing some talented and creative work without the "creative inspiration" of drugs or alcohol.
