Welcome to Show #20 of Glenn's Lost Classics. This show is going to feature Aerosmith to celebrate Steven Tyler's Birthday on March 26th. He wrote a book Does the Noise in my Head Bother You? A Rock and Roll Memoir a few years back. I'm going to read the first 3 paragraphs.

"I was born at the Polyclinic Hospital in the Bronx, March 26, 1948. As soon as I could travel my parents headed straight out of town to Sunapee, New Hampshire, to the little housekeeping cottages they rented out every summer, kind of an old-fashioned bed-and-breakfast deal only it was 1950. I was put in a crib at the side of the house. A fox came by and thought I was a cub, grabbed me by the scruff of my diaper, and dragged me into the woods. I grew up with the animals and the children of the woods. I heard so much in the silence of the pine tree forests that I knew later in life I would have to fill that void. The only thing my parents knew was that I was out there somewhere. They heard me cry in the forest one night, but when they came up to here I was, all they saw was a big hole in the ground, which they thought was the fox's den. They dug and dug and dug, but all they found was the rabbit hole I'd fallen into-like Alice."

"And like Alice I entered another dimension: the sixth dimension (the fifth dimension was already taken). Since then, I can go to that place anytime I want, because I know the secret of the children of the woods; there's so much in silence when you know what you're hearing-what dances between the psycho-acoustics of any two notes and what reads between the lines is akin to the juxtaposition of what you see when you look in the mirror. My whole life has been dancing between these world: the GOAN ZONE, the Way-Out-o-Sphere and . . .the UNFORTUNATE STATE OF REALITY. In essence, I call myself a peripheral visionary. I hear what people don't say an dI see what's invisible. At night, because our visual perception is made up of rods and cones, if you're going down a dark path, the only way to really see the path is to look off and wee it in your peripheral vision. But more on this as we progress, regress, and digress."

"When I finally got pulled out of the rabbit hole, my parents brought me back to the third dimension. Like all parents they were concerned, but I was afraid to tell them that I have never felt more comfortable than being lost in that forest."
