Before American Idol

Steven Tyler was born on March 26, 1948 to parents Susan and Victor Tallarico.  Steven’s deep-rooted love of music came from his father, a classical musician and pianist. At the age of 16, Steven formed his first band, The Strangeurs, which later became known as Chain Reaction. At first, Steven was the band’s drummer but later became the lead singer. To earn money during his teen years, Steven worked in a bakery. He was later expelled from Roosevelt High School for drug use.  Steven graduated from the Leonard Quintano School for Young Professionals in 1967.

Steven Tyler, along with Joe Perry and Tom Hamilton formed the legendary group of Aerosmith in 1970.  Though the group is most well-known for the iconic song “Dream On,” Steven actually wrote this song before the group was formed. Aerosmith went on to become one of the most famous rock and roll groups in American history, continuing to produce influential music throughout the 1980’s and now well into the 2000’s.

Steven Tyler is father to four children, including actress Liv Tyler. He has been married and divorced twice.

    Steven, you say some funny stuff!

  4. Joan says:

    Steven.. Enjoy you.

    The background music for the contestants is too overpowering and cannot hear them. If you could suggest that they adjust that we could hear them better.
    Thanks, Joan

  5. Amee says:

    Hey Tyler, have something against Hollie last night? Or do you just ditto what Randy says? Or were you asleep when Hollie sang? Gosh man, it was just beautiful.

    Get your “save” out and dust it off. You will need it tonight, jerk.

  6. Mark says:

    Thank you for coming to AI, when you make constructive comments you are right on. I know in the case of Jessica there isn’t much to say I mean she is the best and she proves it every week. I know you may not see this, but I have to ask, was the whole fiasco thursday for real or was it all for rating

  7. Caryn B. Spillman says:

    Steven; I watch the show a lot. My mother was an actress in Vienna, Austria. I am just in counseling. Anyway, why don’t we have any Roy Orbison music. I’d sure like to hear it. Let’s hear it!

  8. gnomeofthenorth says:

  9. Alan Aldrich says:

    what the heel do you guys see in Phillip ?
    He is not creative at all. Every time he does the same thing and his singing is awful.
    I reaaly don’t get why the judges keep praising him for singing badly.

  10. lynngee says:

    Phillip is the best on the show. So talented. Does his own thing and its always a good thing

  11. Slick says:

    What’s up with you all giving Joshua standing ovations ? He sucks at singing all he does is
    scream and has a whiny voice. He should have gone before Skyler

  12. KarenThomas says:

    Just like I told Randy and Paula, Enough with the standing ovations and the pushing of Joshua and Jessica. I can understand why you like them….you scream too!!!! I do think you are funny though… Hollie is better than the two you judges are pushing for.. she won’t win..but i will buy her albums

    • Anonymous says:

      Couldn’t agree with you more. My entire family are so sick of the behavior of the prejudiced behavior of the judges, we don’t even want to watch it again.

  13. Migdalia Vega says:

    Hey Steven just wanted to say that i Love your hair and u ROCK :)

    • lakegeorge says:

      Hey Steven , Does someone have your seat hotwired…When them 2 racist you sit with stand up and clap , you do the same. You are nothing but a puppet and I lost all the respect I use to have for you. Do your own thing ..stop being a follower.

  14. Kathy says:

    These contestants need guidance not standing o’s. Their future is at stake here. We have lost some true entertainers too early this year. Eliminate the save. It seldom works anyhow and was so poorly executed. I have lots of your music and will share a” little” of my storage space with Phillip.

  15. Harmon says:

    Where in the known universe does it say that Phillip Phillips can sing? He butchered a great Bob Seger song… no feeling and barely on key. His voice was weak and the most he did was rub his leg. WHY do you think this guy is so great? He’d be a weak club singer and he sucks. Good grief, guys!

    Dear Steven,
    I think it’s great you’ve joined America Idol; after Siomon left I wasn’t going to watch it anymore; you bring life back to the show; and let’s face it; you know talent; Rand is ok; he needs to stop the Dude stuff though; it sounds so unprofessional .i hope you continue to stay
