9780060515805: Walk This Way: The Autobiography of Aerosmith

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.

From the Back Cover:

"We believed that anything worth doing was worth overdoing" - Steven Tyler

AEROSMITH! America's Hometown Band - five boys from the Northeast who took the music world by storm and shook it out of its '70s doldrums with their singular brand of turbopowered rock. Rive unparalleled musicians who changed the shape of sound in this country forever - and made living on the edge an art form.

Walk This Way is like nothing you've ever experienced before/ Walk This Way is the real thing - an almost day-by-day account of the high and low lfe 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 25 years of living the rock 'n' roll dream, told with no holds barred or punches pulled - the life, the music, the legends, the truth, the hell, the lost weeks and the women. And, of coursem 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 ; and who rose up gloriously from the ashes to reclaim their rightful titles as World Champion Rockers.

But much more than a chronicle of brain-numbing excess, it is a breathtaking study in genius - an exhilarationg look deep inside the music: what spawned and inspired, birthed and moulded 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.
