Steven Tyler has revealed he is writing a book about how it feels to be "married" to his band Aerosmith.

The 62-year-old singer - who is on tour with the band in Europe and starts a US tour in July - fell off stage, causing the band's 2009 tour to be cancelled and then checked into rehab for prescription drug abuse, and is ready to tell all.

Steven revealed: "I'm doing a book called Does The Noise In My Head Bother You and I will be speaking about what it's like to be married to four other guys, and what I've had to put up with. There will never be another band like Aerosmith, and I just don't want to do anything to hurt that. I love the band so much."

But he admits he was disappointed when some members of the band spoke out about his problems.

He said: "Even though some of the people in the band were going public with some of the stuff which turned very ugly, I managed to pull it all back together again and say, 'Look, let's just get out there and be the band that we know we are and not argue about this c*** anymore.

"Everyone's got their problems and their demons, but when we get onstage and play as five, that really all goes away, and that's really all I look at now.

"I'm still in Aerosmith so the circus is still in town. So when it comes to dealing with the band, I take it a day at a time with these guys."

And he insists: "The band has never been better, I'm singing better. It's been beautiful and I realised when I was taking care of my problems that the band is all I really care about."
