Steven Tyler Quotes
Born: March 26, 1948
Never judge a book by it's cover or who you're going to love by your lover.
I guess I am a feminist of sorts. I love women so much, and I celebrate the feminine in me because I appreciate it so much.
You know...sometimes I'll be looking out at the audience and I'll be in the middle of a song, and I'll just stop dead. I'll look out at them, and think what is this... There's one thing that keeps me doing it though, I really love it, I believe in it.
I wait till the last minute to do lyrics. I seem to work best that way - bummed out and under pressure. I often don't do my homework. But I'll always walk that extra mile.
Kurt Cobain, when he did his videos, you look into his eyes and he couldn't even face the camera, he was in pain and I'm angry about Kurt. This guy didn't have to die.
When people think of Aerosmith, I want them to think of the music we've made and nothing else. I don't want the responsibility of some young kid trying to live his life like I did back in the '70's.
What makes me feel good is that after all these years, the ideas that Joe Perry came up with worked and all the kids loved it.
Its cool when I meet young guys from other bands who say how much an impact Aerosmith has had on them and how much they like me.I'll give 'em that 'C'mon you don't mean that' routine, but in my heart I know where they're coming from. If I had grown up in the '70's and was into rock n' roll, I know the kind of impact Aerosmith would have had on me. I know the kind of impact that Elvis and Jagger had on me, and while I'm not comparing myself to those guys, I can relate.

It's a magazine, a newspaper that tells the truth. If you listen to rap today, it's all about the truth. And that's what we all want. Just give me a little truth.
Even in the old days, we'd make an effort. When I'd go out to score on Eighth Avenue, I'd get my junk and a chocolate doughnut. But I'd always also pick up one of those pita-pocket health food sandwiches. You know, something really good for me.
I just want Aerosmith to always give me a hard-on, that's all I ever ask for, for it to be the most special thing in my life. As long as I look at it through those eyes, it will always be that way.
I remember the first guy who offered me a joint in the bathroom. I said 'No, man, I've got enough problems.'
Now that I'm sober, I deserve to get laid.
Just saying no to drugs is like just saying cheer up to a manic depressant

It's amazing in the blink of an eye you finally see the light.
