“I Was In Rehab With Kings Of Leon’s Dad,” And Other Craziness From Steven Tyler’s Memoir

    Unfortunately, over here at Prefix, we haven’t gotten an advance copy of Steven Tyler’s upcoming crazily titled memoir, Does The Noise In My Head Bother You?, so we don’t have any revelations about it to share, at this point. Again, unfortunately. But Spin got its hands on a copy, and posted up eight of the craziest revelations in the book, and there are some doozies in there, from the time Tyler shared a rehab center with the Kings of Leon’s dad, to rehearsing with Led Zeppelin, to being a junior Olympic trampolinist (allegedly). Here’s a sampling. See the list at Spin. 


    In December 2009, after another drug relapse, Tyler checked into a Betty Ford clinic. When he arrived, Tyler recalls being greeted by Ivan Followill, the father of the Kings of Leon’s Caleb, Nathan, and Jared. “His kids didn’t like the way their dad was behaving,” Tyler writes. “He’d remarried and they hated his new wife, he was getting drunk all the time, running trucks and buses off the road — he was the band’s tour manager — just fucked up shit. So they sent him to rehab, and so I spent the next month in the best of company with the Kings of Leon’s dad.”


    Tyler and Joe Perry have shared some very, uh, intimate experiences. “I remember one night on the road when Joe and I were sharing a bed with two girls and woke up in the morning with a seafood blue plate special…Crabs for everybody!”
