All week long, Shelf Life is listing EW’s favorite books of 2011 — sorted into separate categories by genre. Click through the gallery to see our picks for the best music books of the year, starting Steven Tyler’s memoir.
Does The Noise in My Head Bother You?, Steven Tyler: From the EW review: “This book concludes with Tyler securing the Idol gig last year, but the singer recalls how, less than 12 months before, he accidentally ruptured a package of his cocaine in the New York apartment of his (absent) daughter Liv. Drug addicts of a waste-not-want-not disposition — which is to say, all drug addicts — will be glad to know that Tyler ‘snorted it all up, off the counters and everywhere, and got a nice f—ing rail out of it.'”
