Steven Tyler, Aerosmith’s lead singer aka The Demon of Screamin’, is known for his gyrating hips, chiseled cheekbones and rock star-infused drama.

And he’s making waves again. This time, it’s not a new album. It’s a book.

About him, co-written by him.

It’s called “Does The Noise In My Head Bother You?” and one person it definitely bothers is Boston Globe Arts Reporter Geoff Edgers.  He tells us why.

    Tyler’s mistake was in not publishing it as a book of poetry or maybe song lyrics. It sounds terrible, and I feel Geoff’s pain. Great artist’s like Keith Richards, Buddy Guy, BB King etc. just keep on making great music – because they are legends, because they are musicians, not merely celebrities…

      this book is a fictional tale of “hanging out” with Steven Tyler.  actually the Tyler ramblings are only  for a few pages to sell copies of what is really the writers views on america yesterday and today.

       a truly psychotic read from a very ill and possibly dangerous man.
