9780380975945: Walk This Way: The Autobiography of Aerosmith

WALK THIS WAY is like nothing you've ever experienced before. This is NOT some whitewashed, overblown hype penned by some fawning fanzine journalist...or a one-sided exposi spewed out by a pissed-off one-time insider. Walk This Way is the real thing an almost day-by-day account of the high and low life of a true rock 'n' roll monster, in the words of the guys who made it happen: Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton, Brad Whitford and Joey Kramer. Here is a quarter-century of rock godhood, told with no holds barred or punches pulled--the life, the music, the legends, the truth, the hell; the lost weeks and the raunchy, unsafe sex. And, of course, the drugs.

"I mean, we're not talking schizophrenia here. Just self-destructive with a sense of humor." --Joe Perry

By far and away the most candid rock 'n' roll autobiography ever written, Walk This Way is the complete story of five incomparable and uncompromising musical artists who pulled themselves up from nowhere to become rock icons; who crashed and burned spectacularly in a suffocating cloud of cocaine, crystal meth and heroin; and who rose up gloriously from the ashes to reclaim their rightful title as World Champion Rockers.

But much more than a chronicle of violent abuse and brain-numbing excess, it is a breathtaking study in genius--an exhilarating look deep inside the music: what spawned and inspired, birthed and molded the sound that still blows a nation away with the force of a hurricane. This is Aerosmith unbound: where they came from, what they are now, and what they always will be, first and foremost--a truly great American band.

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

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:

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

From the band that lived by the motto "Anything worth doing was worth overdoing" -- Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton, Brad Whitford, and Joey Kramer -- comes a quarter century of rock godhood: the life, the music, the truth, the hell, the lost years, and the raunchy, unsafe sex.

And, of course, the drugs.

But after crashing in a suffocating cloud of cocaine, crystal meth, and heroin, Aerosmith rose up from the ashes to become clean and sober -- and reclaim their rightful title as World Champion Rockers. Learn how they did it in a book that is pure Aerosmith unbound: where they came from, what they are now, and what they will always be -- a great American band.
