Aerosmith's Joey Kramer Joins Band to Accept Award After Being Blocked from Performing

Aerosmith‘s Steven Tyler and Joey Kramer pose with their awards at the 2020 MusiCares Person of the Year held at Los Angeles Convention Center on Friday night (January 24) in Los Angeles.

Joining them were bandmates Joe Perry, Brad Whitford, and Tom Hamilton.

Aerosmith was honored with the Person of the Year Award at this year’s MusiCares Gala during Grammys weekend. The band blocked Joey from performing with them at the event due to a temporary disability that would reportedly not allow him to perform at an “appropriate level.” He then sued the band for breach of contract, but the judge turned down his request to perform at the event.

Joey was allowed to attend as a guest and honoree, but left the stage after the band accepted the award.

“They are brothers. They refer to each other as brothers and they even fight like brothers,” the group’s lawyer Dina LaPolt said while introducing the band.

Aerosmith Reacts to Joey Kramer Suing Band Ahead of Grammys (Report)

Aerosmith is responding to member Joey Kramer reportedly filing a lawsuit against them for excluding him from their 2020 Grammys performance.

The 69-year-old drummer says his fellow members – Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton, and Brad Whitford – are not letting him rejoin the band following a temporary disability, which has never been done to any of them, TMZ reports.

Joey reportedly suffered minor injuries in spring 2019, and when he felt he was ready to return, he was asked to audition to prove his could “play at an appropriate level.”

Joey says that the stress of the situation had “significant repercussions” to his health, and he wound up in the hospital in November, requiring him to cover the cost of a replacement drummer.

When Joey finally auditioned in early January, the band did not let him rejoin.

Aerosmith says they tried to get Joey back for months, but that he couldn’t get it together in time and always backed out.

Joey Kramer‘s legal team has requested that a judge allow him to rehearse with the band (rather than with a “click track”), but no final decision has been made. The case will be revisited on Tuesday (January 21).
