Aerosmith Resume Tour


Aerosmith are to resume their tour without drummer Joey Krammer, with a concert in Washington state.

It was reported by TMZ that Krammer had suffered ‘heart-related complications’, and that the sixty-four year old drummer, would undergo heart surgery.

Aerosmith posted an update on their website refuting the claims, saying Joey had undergone a “minor medical procedure,” and that the drummer had “no history of a heart condition.”

Krammer said,  “I’m feeling better than ever and I’ll be back sitting in the best seat in the house, hitting it harder than ever for our amazing fans. My gratitude and thanks for all the love and support showered on me during this time.  #LetRockRule.”

Joe Perry tweeted that Joey was, “doing great and will be back soon.” He aslo tweeted that the band had been rehearsing for two days with Krammer’s son, Jessie Krammer. Jessie is also a drummer and will be filling in for his dad until he returns.


Joey’s wife Linda, @MrsKramedog took to Twitter to confirm her husband had undergone a procedure on his heart. She said the whole procedure had been blown out of proportion, and that Joey was “NOT undergoing emergency open heart surgery.”

Aerosmith are currently on tour with former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash, with tour dates leading up to mid-September.
