WALK THIS WAY is like nothing you've ever experienced before. This is NOT some whitewashed, overblown hype penned by some fawning fanzine journalist...or a one-sided exposi spewed out by a pissed-off one-time insider. Walk This Way is the real thing an almost day-by-day account of the high and low life of a true rock 'n' roll monster, in the words of the guys who made it happen: Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton, Brad Whitford and Joey Kramer. Here is a quarter-century of rock godhood, told with no holds barred or punches pulled--the life, the music, the legends, the truth, the hell; the lost weeks and the raunchy, unsafe sex. And, of course, the drugs.

"I mean, we're not talking schizophrenia here. Just self-destructive with a sense of humor." --Joe Perry

By far and away the most candid rock 'n' roll autobiography ever written, Walk This Way is the complete story of five incomparable and uncompromising musical artists who pulled themselves up from nowhere to become rock icons; who crashed and burned spectacularly in a suffocating cloud of cocaine, crystal meth and heroin; and who rose up gloriously from the ashes to reclaim their rightful title as World Champion Rockers.

But much more than a chronicle of violent abuse and brain-numbing excess, it is a breathtaking study in genius--an exhilarating look deep inside the music: what spawned and inspired, birthed and molded the sound that still blows a nation away with the force of a hurricane. This is Aerosmith unbound: where they came from, what they are now, and what they always will be, first and foremost--a truly great American band.

Hang on, it's a hell of a ride.
