Biography

One of the most recognizable and dynamic singer-songwriters in rock and roll, Steven Tyler was the voice and chief lyricist for the multiple-Grammy-winning group Aerosmith. He co-founded the group in 1969, and by the mid-1970s their signature blend of blues-driven rock was climbing the charts on the strength of singles like "Dream On," "Walk This Way" and "Sweet Emotion." Though Tyler and his bandmates fell prey to the excesses of the rock and roll lifestyle in the form of drug abuse, sending Aerosmith into a dive until the late 1980s, they rebounded to even greater success with Permanent Vacation (1987). They soon became one of the most successful American rock groups of all time, with 150 million albums sold worldwide and the most gold and multi-platinum albums of any American group. Tyler and his cohorts' three-decade journey from outcasts to icons made him a legend in the history of popular music.

Bonus Trivia

.

Tyler was involved with model and super groupie Bebe Buell, with whom he had a daughter, future actress and model Liv Tyler. He remained unaware of his paternity status until Liv was nine, since Buell had kept him out of her daughter’s life due to his drug issues. The news became public in 1991, after which both Liv and her father formed a strong relationship.

.

Tyler was seriously injured in a 1980 motorcycle accident, which kept the band off the road for several months.

.

"After some long...hard...thoughts...I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress ‘American Idol’ before she boils my rabbit. I strayed from my first love, Aerosmith, and I’m back – but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I’ve got two fists in the air and I’m kicking the door open with my band." – Tyler's statement on leaving "American Idol" (Fox) after two seasons as a judge, July 12, 2012
