Steven Tyler was born Steven Tallarico in New York City, but he and the other members of Aerosmith made their name in Boston as one of the city's biggest and best bands of the '70s. Influenced by Mick Jagger, Tyler helped Aerosmith become of rock's most popular groups. After battles with drugs and alcohol temporarily sidelined the band in the early '80s, by the end of the decade it had another huge album. Tyler and guitarist Joe Perry have often aired their grievances with each other in public, with Tyler's outspoken and flamboyant nature rarely softened. Tyler spent two seasons on 'American Idol' as a judge, and has recently talked about recording his first solo album.
