Does The Noise In My Head Bother You? - Steven Tyler

Does The Noise In My Head Bother You?




I love Aeromsith and I think Steven Tyler is an amazing singer and one of the greatest frontman of all time. But not everything he does is gold. Certainly not this book. I really wanted to like this book, but ****, as a reader I shouldn't have to pan for gold, looking through all the gibberish to get to the crux of the story he is trying to tell. Steven gives some of the best, most entertaining on-camera interviews. You know how he talks and likes to ad-lib and riff his way through with clever bon-mots. This works fine in an interview....not in a book. I really don't know what to make of the book, especially what the intent was. Whoever the editor of the book was should have been fired because he didn't do his job when making this book legible and coherent.

I guess some could argue that keeping the book the way it's presented is to keep the essence of Steven Tyler intact, warts and all. I get that and in my mind I think it's the way it should be. But in practicality, this isn't the way to write a book. Well, it's certainly not a book that I would want to read. It's takes too much work getting there and by the time I get there, I have forgotten what the **** he was talking about leading up to that point.

The book gets an average grade because there are still some interesting things to be found inside. But there are just way to many random stuff being thrown at the reader that it constantly leaves you scratching your head.

I can't recommend this book if I know for a fact that I will never bother reading it again. Well, here's hoping that the remaining three from the band (Tom Hamilton, Joe Perry, Brad Whitford) can somehow manage to write the definitive book on Aerosmith. So far they are 0-2. Sigh.
