Steven Tyler Net Worth
American rock musician Steven Tyler is worth an estimated $150 million. In addition to being the lead singer of Aerosmith, he is best known for his work with the band, which is one of the most popular and successful of all time.
Steven Tallarico Tyler was born on March 26th, 1948 in Manhattan as Steven Tallarico. When he was born, he was the son of Susan Ray and Victor Tallarico, both of whom were professional musicians.
Tyler’s love of music developed at a young age, thanks to his father, a classical musician. Due to his drug use, he was expelled from Roosevelt High School in Yonkers, New York. When he was in high school, he went to Quintano College for Young Professionals.
At some point in the late 1960s, Tyler moved to Boston, where he made connections with other musicians who would go on to join Aerosmith one day. He got to know Joe Perry on guitar, Tom Hamilton on bass, Ray Tabano on guitar, and Joe Kramer on drums at a jam session.
When Tyler formed Aerosmith in 1969, he became the band’s songwriter and lead singer, and Columbia Records signed the band in 1972. Aerosmith released their self-titled album the following year.
One of the band’s most popular songs, “Dream On,” was merely a slight clue at the time. In 1975, Aerosmith’s third and fourth studio albums, Toys in the Attic and Rocks in the Air (1976), became commercially successful and popular (1976).
“Sweet Emotion” was the band’s first mainstream Top 40 hit. They re-released “Dream On” in 1976 with the knowledge that it was still a sleeper smash and it reached No. 6 on the charts.
“Walk This Way” was another great hit for them later that year. By 1976, they were performing at major music festivals and stadiums around the country.
It wasn’t until the late ’90s, however, that the band began to disband. Drug use by Tyler and Perry included heroin and amphetamines.
Perry and Whitford quit the band, and Tyler kept adding new members to keep the band together, although he was hospitalized and unable to tour for the majority of 1981 after a motorcycle accident.
After a lengthy spell in recovery in the 1980s, Tyler reformed his band and returned to the stage.
Dude (Looks Like a Lady) appeared on Permanent Vacation in 1987, and two years later, “Pump,” which featured “Love in an Elevator” and “Janie’s Got a Gun,” became even more popular.
“Cryin’,” “Crazy,” and “Livin’ on the Edge” were some of the singles that helped keep Aerosmith’s success alive until 1993, when they produced Get a Grip.
The popularity of Aerosmith in the 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s was despite the fact that they were no longer able to chart as high as they once did.
It’s worth noting that out of Aerosmith’s fifteen studio albums, nine of them have been certified gold, platinum, or multi-platinum.
Eight singles made the top ten of the US Billboard 100, with the 1998 single I Don’t Want to Miss A Thing attaining the coveted #1 position.
To date, Aerosmith has won seven American Music Awards as well as multiple Billboard Music Awards, four Grammys, and ten MTV Video Music Awards, among many other honors.
As a result of their admission into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as well as their appearance at Super Bowl XXXV, Aerosmith has grown in fame.
Among Tyler’s collaborators are Run D.M.C. (Walk This Way version), Alice Cooper, Pink, Eminem (for The Eminem Show, which has sold more than 19 million copies worldwide), and world-renowned trumpeter Chris Botti.
The album “We’re All Somebody from Somewhere” was his first as a solo country artist and was released in July 2016.
On the other hand, Tyler has been in a number of films and television shows, including Wayne’s World 2, The Simpsons, Saturday Night Live and Two and a Half Men.
His musical career has been long and successful. Tyler founded Dirico Motorcycles in 2007 after teaming up with inventor/engineer Mark Dirico.
American Idol had him on the panel for two seasons. Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?, a memoir written by Tyler, was released in 2011 as well.
The birth of Tyler’s daughter Liv Tyler was the result of his relationship with fashion model Bebe Buell in 1977.
Actress, producer, and singer Liv has also made her mark on the entertainment industry. Through Liv Langdon’s marriage to Royston Langdon, Tyler has three grandkids. Cyndria Foxe was Steven’s wife from 1978 till 1987.
In 2002, Foxe succumbed to a brain tumor and died. Tyler married Teresa Barrick, a fashion designer, in 1988.
They had two children, a girl and a son, before divorcing in January of that year. Tyler proposed to Erin Brady in December of 2011; however, the two later called it quits in January of 2013.
After convincing Julia Holcomb’s parents to give over guardianship to him in 1975, Tyler and Julia were able to live together in Boston.
They had a three-year relationship. Due to a house fire they had, Holcomb became pregnant and had an abortion because they feared that the smoke and the drugs she was taking at the time might cause birth problems.
The musician has had a long history of health concerns, and not all of them can be attributed to his long history of heavy drug usage.
After a show in Florida in 2006, Tyler underwent throat surgery to repair a damaged blood artery in his throat.
As a result, Aerosmith had to cancel the remainder of their North American tour. In 2003, he was diagnosed with Hepatitis C and underwent rigorous treatment, which he revealed at the time. For his foot injuries, he underwent many surgeries on his legs in 2008.
Tyler started “Janie’s Fund” in 2015 to help women who have been abused by their male partners. Since its inception, he has raised more than $2.4 million for the organization. In 2017, the Atlanta-based shelter Janie’s House opened its doors to victims of domestic violence.
