Singer's memoir is a wild ride

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler's memoir is a wild ride.

Like that night in 1978 when he blacked out on stage while singing Reefer-Headed Woman. Or that weird weekend with Keith Richards at Bing Crosby's old house on Long Island. Everyone, Tyler writes, "was gacked to the nines on coke".

Does The Noise In My Head Bother You? - due for release next week - is explicit and filled with expletives, it reads like an even wilder and louder version of Richards' best-selling Life.

Tyler, 63, tells story after story about life in the "most decadent, lecherous, sexiest, nastiest band in the land". Or as Tyler states it: "To snort or not to snort. That wasn't even a question."

A native of Yonkers, New York, Tyler was born Steve Victor Tallarico in 1948. He remembers hearing Elvis Presley as a child and feeling like he was "bitten by a radioactive spider".

By the late 1960s, he has met the other members of Aerosmith and hung out with them at the Woodstock festival. They get their first record deal in 1972. Their self-titled debut album comes out the following year.

Tyler is open about his battles with guitarist Joe Perry, a bond "fraught to say the least". They are "soul mates" who might not speak for months, brothers caught up in "moments of ecstasy and periods of pure rage".

He writes briefly about joining American Idol. He was touring in France in June 2010 when he got a text from Idol judge Kara DioGuardi wondering if he wanted to give the show a try.

Tyler recalls his inner voice told him, "Yeah, I'll do it".

Tyler signed on before telling the band and remembers Perry barging into his dressing room, furious that he learned about it from the media. But that is all "water under the bridge", Tyler says.
