Steven Tyler "tried" gay sex, "but just didn't dig it," he says in his memoir. "Gay sex just doesn't do it for me
But you've reached them, and I've always wanted to reach people. I'm the first one to say I love my fans because they love that I took a chance.
I quit my band in New York City in 1969 and I got really angry at them. I got angry at one of my guitar players and I dove over the drum set and we got into a fight.
The things that come to those that wait may be the things left by those that got there first.
If you take all that I've learned from Joe and all that Joe has learned from me, and you throw all that into a song, not only are you using the gifts that God gave you, but also all the experiences you've had.
I don't mind being a grandfather; I've been a mother for so many years. You just can't believe what it's like being a father. Especially when you come out of the chaos of the road to getting married and having children.
Great melody over great riffs is, to me, the secret of it all.
My wife and I had decided not to let anybody take pictures of our home because it was just the last place on earth we had that was unscathed. But people have climbed over the fence; they've taken aerial shots. They've gotten my address and put it on the Internet.
I had gotten one of the first Korg synthesizers with 300 presets.
Oddly enough, it's what we started out as, it's what we always have been, and it's almost like Aerosmith is that band in the closet.
The band's never taken a year off. Last August we decided to take one, and three months in I was bored to tears.

When she was very young I wasn't sure whether I was the father but, by the time she was eight, I knew for sure. I saw my features in hers and I cried. I started seeing her a lot and I think her mother had alluded to the fact I was her dad. I just said to her, 'Liv, there's something I want to tell you. I'm your Daddy.'

I love her more than anything and have a great relationship with her. We can talk about anything."
And the things that come to those that wait may be the things left by those that got there first.
Back then it was nothing like today. So you'd go to the bowling alley. We bowled and you could be in the back and you could make out, you know? And you know how hot it was to make out.

I've got scarves and boots from' 1970 that I still wear.
