    Aerosmith drama

    so elsewhere, I read that Kramer was pissed that the band billed him for the fill-in drummer's salary. At first, that seemed outrageous to me, but then the article said that Kramer is still collecting his full share of all the proceeds from the shows, even though he isn't performing.

    Aerosmith drama

    Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer barred from Grammys rehearsal by security amid lawsuit drama By Tyler McCarthy | Fox News Facebook Twitter Flipboard Comments Print Email Fox News Flash top entertainment headlines for Jan. 23 Fox News Flash top entertainment and celebrity headlines for Jan. 22 are here. Check out what's clicking today in entertainment. Aerosmith has hired security guards to bar bandmate Joey Kramer from entering their rehearsal space ahead of their Grammys performance after the drummer filed a lawsuit against them. TMZ cameras were rolling the moment Kramer arrived at a rehearsal studio in Los Angeles, where two apologetic security guards informed him that the other four members of the band hired them to make sure he didn’t enter the venue. A visibly frustrated Kramer reluctantly accepts the news, noting that the guards were simply doing their job. The awkward moment comes after the 69-year-old drummer filed a lawsuit against the band for telling him that he can’t perform with them at the Grammys as well as a Person of the Year honor from MusiCares this weekend. AEROSMITH'S STEVEN TYLER CAUGHT ON LIVE TV SHOVING SELFIE-SEEKING FAN Rock band Aerosmith from lir: Tom Hamilton, Brad Whitford, Joe Perry, Steven Tyler and Joey Kramer. (Reuters) “The band waited until January 15th to tell me that they weren’t letting me play at the awards ceremonies this week,” Kramer told the outlet. “I can hold my head high knowing that I did the right thing – to fight for my right to celebrate the band’s success that I have dedicated the better part of my life to helping build." The lawsuit stems from Kramer’s outrage at being asked to audition for the band following some minor injuries last spring that prevented him from performing for roughly six months. According to People, which obtained the court documents, Kramer’s lawsuit insists that he recovered from his injuries in the fall of 2019 and was “willing and able to return” to the band for their residency shows in November and December. However, bandmates Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton and Brad Whitford insisted that Kramer prove he’s “able to play at an appropriate level.” Kramer eventually sent a demo recording to the band, which determined that he was not at a performance level he needed to be at to play with them at the Grammys and their upcoming MusiCares honor. STEVEN TYLER ON OVERCOMING ANGER AFTER AEROSMITH BANDMATES SENT HIM TO REHAB “Joey Kramer is our brother; his wellbeing is of paramount importance to us,” a statement from the band provided to Fox News reads. “However he has not been emotionally and physically able to perform with the band, by his own admission, for the last 6 months. We have missed him and have encouraged him to rejoin us to play many times but apparently he has not felt ready to do so.” Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer sued the band over not allowing him to perform with them. (Tommaso Boddi/Getty Images for Janie's Fund) It continues: “Joey has now waited until the last moment to accept our invitation, when we unfortunately have no time for necessary rehearsals during Grammys week. We would be doing a disservice to him, to ourselves and to our fans to have him play without adequate time to prepare and rehearse. Compounding this, he chose to file a lawsuit on the Friday night of the holiday weekend preceding the Grammys with total disregard for what is our limited window to prepare to perform these important events. Given his decisions, he is unfortunately unable to perform but, of course, we have invited him to be with us for both the Grammys and our MusiCares honor. We are bonded together by much more than our time on stage.” CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP Speaking to TMZ, Kramer responded to his bandmates' statement, saying: “The band’s offer to allow me to participate in this week’s MusiCares and Grammy celebrations for red carpet photo ops only, is appreciated; however, with a fill-in drummer playing on stage at two events honoring our collective musical contributions, it is extremely hurtful to me. I am a professional musician who is eager to return to my rightful place with Aerosmith."
  4. except "Back in Black" is by far the best thing that they did.
  5. we all know that he loves cock. Why is he so scared for it to become public?
  6. I know a guy (who inherited millions when his dad died and has never accomplished shit himself) who paid a ton of dough to travel with Eric (and dozens of other saps who paid big money) on a golf trip to Scotland. This was a year or so ago.
  7. For those that don't follow closely, Issa was thrown the fuck out of the 49th, so, he's taking advantage of Duncan Hunter's misdeeds, and running for Congress from the 50th. No worries, he's got plenty of cash to afford to move a few miles...his wealth increased by a couple-hundred million while he served in congress. As an aside, there's nothing like earmarking money for street widening on a street where you own several buildings. So, I was driving up the road that divides my district from the 50th, and saw a large Issa sign today. "Darrell Issa, Trump Conservative". What "Trump" and "Conservative" have to do with one another, I have no idea. Meanwhile, shit is heating up. Looks like the carpetbagging prick is fighting dirty. His Dem opponent is Anmar something...a decent, Christian guy who has the misfortune of having a dad that's a no-shit terrorist. He doesn't know his dad, but whatever. Meanwhile, Issa's GOP opponent is a longtime fixture in San Diego politics, and reasonably well-liked, but, he's got the gay. So, here we are.
  8. THIS is the way the press corps should operate. Hold these motherfuckers feet to the fire.
  9. Klein? How many jewish electricians do you know? j/k those are great tools and I own a lot of them.
  10. I got a little weepy with Petty. The GF and I had seen him just a few days before at "KAABOO" . I heard it on the radio, got home to her cooking dinner, and we were very sad after I told her.
  11. fucking sucks. My newfie had a broken leg. We got out with no surgery, and it still cost me 3 grand. The good news is he'll be close to normal soon. F cancer. especially dog cancer.
  12. So, you used both hots and the ground, and no common, correct?
