Stephen Victor Tallarico (born March 26, 1948 in Yonkers, New York),                 
better known as Steven Tyler (and often nicknamed The Demon of Screamin') is an     
American musician and songwriter. He is best known for his work as the lead         
singer of the Boston-based rock band Aerosmith.                                     
Tyler is known for his raw, sharp-edged vocals, and is                               
musically versatile, playing a wide range of instruments, including the             
harmonica, keyboards, and several percussion instruments. In the 1970s and early     
1980s, Tyler was also known for his heavy drug and alcohol abuse, but has since     
maintained sobriety for over 20 years. Tyler is a prolific frontman, rock icon,     
and sex symbol, and during his high-energy stage performances, he usually           
dresses in bright colorful outfits with his trademark scarves hanging from his       
mic stand.
