Steven Tyler Sits Down With Matt Lauer For Dateline

Steven Tyler’s lengthy sitdown with Matt Lauer, which aired on Dateline tonight reveals the legendary rocker to be a sweet sensitive guy whose self-awareness was earned the hard way.

There isn’t a lot of Idol talk in this interview, but Steven’s tales of his Bronx childhood, wild-child rock years and long struggle to overcome drug and alcohol dependency is  fascinating nonetheless.

Steven is promoting his new memoir, “Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?” set to be released this week.
