Steven Tyler: New Single (Hear It Here) and Book This Week


The Honorable Steven Tyler, judge of “American Idol,” is cashing in like crazy this week on his new found fame and fun. He’s got a new single coming on May 9th called “It Feels So Good.” It’s his official first ever solo single, although he says he’s working on material with Aerosmith. Here’s the link to hear a clip of the single: It’s nice to hear his voice again! And then there’s the release tomorrow of his memoir, “Does the Noise In My Head Bother You?” The book is already causing trouble as a couple of people who are in it are complaining Tyler has not recalled certain anecdotes correctly. A full reading of the book may determine how much Tyler’s hazy memory has twisted a few stories. Already upset is New York Dolls rocker David Johannson, first husband of Tyler’s now deceased ex wife Cyrinda Foxe. There are others. And all of this comes conveniently as “Idol” enters sweeps month with big ratings anticipated for the finale. It’s quite a turnaround for Tyler, who was almost dead a year ago. It’s quite a nice comeback story. Dude looks like a survivor.
