Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler said he has no interest in reading bandmate Joe Perry‘s new autobiography. The singer was asked last night in Nashville if he’s going to the read the book. His reply? “Hell, no!.”

My first guitar hero was Joe Perry from Aerosmith.

He’d play so loud, even Helen Keller could sing along . . . so loud, in fact, that in order to hear myself, I had to STICK MY FINGER in my ear. Making me so angry, I wanted to SHOVE MY FIST up his ass.” – Steven Tyler about Joe Perry in “Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?: A Rock ‘n’ Roll Memoir”
