Steven Tyler is to release a solo song next month, and believe it or not this is the very first time the singer will put something out without his Aerosmith cronies around him.
Tyler’s solo debut song is called Feels So Good, as Undercover.fm reports. The song is described by Rolling Stone (with perhaps an ominous lack of enthusiasm) as a ‘poppy tune’. The single is reportedly likely to be a one-off thing.
Tyler is also about to publish what promises to be a vice-packed autobiography, which he describes as “All the unexpurgated, brain-jangling tales of debauchery, sex & drugs. and transcendence you will ever want to hear.”
He goes on about the book, entitled Does The Noise In My Head Bother You?, saying, “I’ve been mythicized, Mick-icized, eulogized and fooligized, I’ve been Cole-Portered and farmer’s-daughtered, I’ve been Led Zepped and 12-stepped. I’m a rhyming fool and so cool that me, Fritz the Cat, and Mohair Sam are the baddest cats that am. I have so many outrageous stories, too many, and I’m gonna tell ’em all.”
The book is out in May through Harper Collins. One of the more amusing episodes from the book seems to be when Tyler’s partner, Bebe Buell, gets into a full-on fight with Linda McCartney, while Paul languidly looks on and says to Tyler, “I like your music, man.”
In other Aerosmith news, it has emerged the band are back in the studio and working with producer Jack Douglas, he who produced their one good record, Toys In The Attic.
