It's difficult tackling a subject like Steven Tyler because so much has been written about him and his band Aerosmith. Author Laura Jackson nonetheless reveals some little-known details of Tyler's life as she follows him from young boy to iconic celebrity.

The book details Steven Victor Tallarico's upbringing in the Bronx and his involvement in early bands and, most notably, Chain Reaction. Jackson also describes Tyler's predilection for drugs that began in his mid-teens. By age 17 he was smoking marijuana, which ultimately led to Tuinals, Seconals, meth and Quaaludes. This addiction would haunt him for the remainder of his life and ultimately destroy--if only temporarily--Aerosmith.

Jackson chronicles the band's chart successes and touring dates. She writes about the awards they received and breaks down chronologically their recording history. For a band that has had so much written about them, Jackson's biography will turn you onto some things you never knew.

Originally published on Curled Up With A Good Book at Steven Rosen, 2013
