Holy What-it-is-ness! That was a wild and crazy ride! Never would have picked this up if I hadn't loved him so much on American Idol...I did not listen to much of their music. Heck I was just a baby (wink, wink). Aerosmith has only had a 40+ year career!!
On AI, I fell in love with his big heart, his style and sense of humor! I had no idea what a genius he is. It was very interesting learning about this legendary performer and what makes him tick. But seriously, how has he survived? He was totally wasted for like 25 years straight! I learned more about the "rock-n-roll" lifestyle than I ever wanted to! Yep, drugs, sex, rock-n-roll. I would have liked to hear more about how he got his 2 doctorate degrees, though. He IS a poet and I have a new appreciation for him, if not purely for his fashion sense.
One of my favorite lines was when he realized the toll his lifestyle had taken on his kids, "A lot of your problems have my name on them, but most of the solutions will have your name on them."
And regarding his creativity, "If you don't know where to draw the line, then your choices become infinite."
However, he is a self proclaimed "foul-mouthed individual"...be warned!
