This past Sunday, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees delivered an explosive performance of "Livin' on the Edge" at the annual Grammy Award Ceremony, followed by a wild reunion with Run-D.M.C. for a fiery rendition of "Walk This Way."
Hard to miss, however, was drummer Joey Kramer's absence from the performance, who was replaced by John Douglas for the night.
With the new of Kramer's lawsuit against the band and a resulting judge's dismissal of the case, Aerosmith shared in a statement, "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. We are bonded together by much more than our time on stage.”
It remains to be seen whether Kramer will make an appearance at the Fenway celebration.
