The drummer of Aerosmith Joey kramer – who has been with the band since it was formed in 1970 – is being kicked as a rag doll by the other members, who unfairly prevent him from rejoining the band before some unique events in life … according to A new demand.
Kramer claims his fellow Aerosmith members: Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Tom hamilton Y Brad Whitford – They go against 50 years of precedents by not allowing him to return to the band after a temporary disability … something that has never been done to any of them.
According to the documents … Kramer suffered minor injuries in the spring of 2019, but was ready to return for the band’s residency shows in Las Vegas in the fall.
Instead of being received again as expected … Kramer states that he was subjected to a new band policy that he did not approve, where he would have to audition to show that he was “able to play at an appropriate level” to regain His role as drummer.
Once again, Kramer states that this has never happened to any of the other guys in the 50-year history of Aerosmith … all of which at one time or another had to get away for a while.
Worse, Kramer says the band asked him to perform a series of solo rehearsals against a “click track”, not even live with the other 4 boys, like his audition … and they would listen to the recordings to decide if he recovered. Your concert
Kramer claims that the stress of the terrible experience had “significant repercussions” on his health and ended up in the hospital in November, forcing him to cover the cost of a replacement drummer … and delayed his audition to join the band . By the way … Kramer says he paid the replacement drummer $ 20k per week for performances and $ 10k per week for rehearsals.
According to the lawsuit … Kramer finally reluctantly auditioned with the “click track” in early January, and despite his 50 years of experience and believing his performance was on par, the band forbade him to rejoin.
He states that the reason he was given is that “he didn’t have enough ‘energy’ in the recordings.”
Kramer says that this “freeze” will cause important and historical events to be lost, including a performance at the Grammys 2020 and the band’s next residence on its 50th anniversary.
He wants the court to order him to return to the gang to avoid “irreparable damage” if Aerosmith can expel him.
