Steven Tyler (born Steven Victor Tallarico; March 26, 1948) is an American singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, and the frontman and lead singer of the Boston-based rock band Aerosmith, in which he also plays the harmonica, and occasional piano and percussion. He is also known as the “Demon of Screamin'” and is equally known for his on-stage acrobatics. During his high-energy performances, he usually dresses in bright, colorful outfits with his trademark scarves hanging from his microphone stand. In the 1970s, Tyler rose to prominence as the frontman of Aerosmith, which released such milestone hard rock albums as Toys in the Attic and Rocks. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Tyler had a heavy drug and alcohol addiction, and the band’s popularity waned.

Personal Quotes

(On why he became sober) “Liv is possibly the biggest reason for me changing the way I lived. She is a dream daughter. 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.’ It was one of the most emotional moments of my life and I just stood there crying like a baby while she shouted, ‘I knew it, I knew it.’ I love her more than anything and have a great relationship with her. We can talk about anything.”

The things that come to those that wait may be the things left by those that got there first.
