9780062188151: Walk This Way: The Autobiography of Aerosmith

Walk This Way: The Autobiography of Aerosmith is available in time for the Aerosmith's 40th Anniversary. It's the New York Times bestselling autobiography by the legendary rock group that lived by the motto "Anything worth doing was worth overdoing." Aerosmith shook the music world out of its '70s doldrums…and made living on the edge an art form. Walk This Way is the complete and candid story of their meteoric rise to fame, their near destruction due to drugs and excess, and their return to the stage as one of America's greatest rock bands. Cowritten by respected rock journalist Stephen Davis, author of the seminal profile of Led Zeppelin, Hammer of the Gods, and with a new afterward from the band, this edition of the memoir to end all rock memoirs is the perfect  gift for you and your favorite Aerosmith fan.

Review:

From Aerosmith's heyday in the late 1970s, which they spent "gacked to the nines" (as lead singer Steven Tyler puts it), to the Aerosmith of today--clean, sober, and adored by millions--the band has a long, hard history. Walk This Way chronicles the whole story: drugs, booze, and all.

Prefaced with the now familiar rock-star "intervention," when Steven Tyler's loved ones cornered him in his manager's office in 1986, the autobiography traces Aerosmith's twisted road, from their New Hampshire roots to their success in Boston to the worldwide fame that they long craved and currently enjoy. Tyler kicks off this rock & roll exposé, briefly recounting the history of his ancestors in Italy and sharing incidents from his own Northeast childhood. The book is written in interview style, with all five band members talking candidly about the good times--and the bad. We also hear from girlfriends, wives, friends, and various hangers-on.

The story of Aerosmith and their constant ups, downs, and detours never fails to grab you and force you to read another page--if only to see what train wreck awaits around the next corner. Walk This Way is a must-read for devoted fans of Aerosmith as well as anybody who wants to live the full-on '70s rock-star life--without having to go through rehab. --Paul DeBruler

From the Back Cover:

With a new postscript celebrating forty years of Aerosmith

From the great American band—Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton, Brad Whitford, and Joey Kramer—that lived by the motto "Anything worth doing is worth overdoing" comes the story of rock godhood: the life, the music, the truth, the hell, the lost years, and the raunchy sex. And, of course, the drugs.

Hang on, it's a hell of a ride!
