Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

One of the most recognizable and dynamic singer-songwriters in rock and roll, Steven Tyler was the voice and chief lyricist for the multiple-Grammy-winning group Aerosmith. He co-founded the group in 1969, and by the mid-1970s their signature blend of blues-driven rock was climbing the charts on the strength of singles like "Dream On," "Walk This Way" and "Sweet Emotion." Though Tyler and his bandmates fell prey to the excesses of the rock and roll lifestyle in the form of drug abuse, sending Aerosmith into a dive until the late 1980s, they rebounded to even greater success with Permanent Vacation (1987). They soon became one of the most successful American rock groups of all time, with 150 million albums sold worldwide and the most gold and multi-platinum albums of any American group. Tyler and his cohorts' three-decade journey from outcasts to icons made him a legend in the history of popular music.
