Some cool things about him is he is of Italian, Russian, Polish and German descent. The guys who would go on to form Aerosmith started out by playing gigs at Steven's family home in Lake Sunapee, New Hampshire. And They were able to get a manager named David Krebs. He described Aerosmith as the closest thing to the Rolling Stones, because of Steven's faint resemblance to the Stones' lead singer Mick Jagger.
From 1979-1983, Steven and Joe eanred themselves the nickname the Toxic Twins because of their heavy drug use and during this time, Joe left the band to form the Joe Perry Project.
On Feb. 14, 1984, the band reunited. In 1986, they were famous once again when they did a version of their original song Walk This Way with up and coming rap band Run-DMC. This song also gave them a good hit because the only album Run-DMC had released then was titled Raisin' Hell. Then later on, the band members started going under the impression that Steven Tyler ws a sex addict because of all the little flings he would have with female roadies and groupies.
In 2001, Aerosmith got to play at Super Bowl XXXV as the halftime show. In 2005, Tyler attended Berkley College of Music and received an honorary doctorate from the University of Boston, Massachusetts
