Wonder if there is more to the story?
I think that a lawsuit against a band member is incompatible with the idea of being in that band.
Bands at this level are businesses, pure and simple. If one guy flakes on a high profile date, if can have MASSIVE financial repercussions. Evidently the other members don't feel they can rely on Kramer, and he has the bad luck not to be irreplaceable like Tyler or Perry. I doubt 1/10 of the audience would even notice he's not there. Or maybe they're just sick of him and this is all an excuse. Or, maybe they realized that having a hired gun on the traps instead of a partner means more money for the other guys. Even if that wasn't the reason, this will soon become obvious to everyone- Tom Hamilton probably needs to watch his back now.
Regardless, suing someone to let you back in a band is like suing your girlfriend for breaking up with you.
Didn’t they tour without Tom for awhile? Cancer I think? Then when he was well again he was back in the fold.
I dont know if he can seriously expect anything but money from this.
I dont really think a judge can order Aerosmith to let him drum....
Only thier moms or girlfriends have that power.......
Especially on these dates Joey should be back in. That's really pretty lousy of them, even if he isn't back to 100%, he was part of what got them to this recognition.
Hell, one drummer was welcomed back with only one stick in hand.
Time to start his own band. Maybe get Don Felder and Dennis De Young on board.
Nobody is guaranteed a job. Especially if you can't perform. But if it's only temporary, is this a real probelm?
Band members often go on a sabbatical if they have an illness or injury. And then come back.
And what's his problem with auditioning? If he's good to go, this should be no problem.
The last straw as I heard it was having Graeme Edge be his replacement. "Cold hearted orb..."
He's a drum player ... need I say more ???
Sorry, the last thing I'd ever do is spend hard earned money on attorneys to force a band to let me play at The Grammys. Tyler always makes some stupid sophomoric comment at these things anyway...except now it'll just grandpa telling dirty jokes. I'd rather be at home.
It's just from performing, not being there. Show up and accept the award in Jeff Beck fashion....then go home.
Go to the :40 mark...
There's got to be something more going on here.
That's show biz
I think that's how KISS is set up. Only Simmons and Stanley (lord how do I even know this!!!) are KISS and the rest of the band at any one moment are day labor....
This is true.
I recall that, while Ace Frehley and Peter Criss didn't have to audition exactly, before the 1996 reunion tour, they did have to sign contracts agreeing to get in shape, to fly right, be at appointed places on time, and just (in general) be employees, not band-mates.
Joey Kramer has been a problem for the last 15-20 years from his "nervous breakdowns" to his chronic and constant injuries. He has been replaced temporarily on numerous tour dates throughout the years, he just can't physically get the job done anymore at his age. Obviously the band feels that John Douglas is injecting new blood into the old band and like playing with him. JD doesn't hit as hard as Kramer, but he's a solid drummer.
The drummer from America's biggest selling hard rock band, he's played on records that have sold more than 160 million copies, played in front of millions and millions of people during a career that has spanned 50 years. Surprised you haven't heard of him.
Today I learned the name of Aerosmith's drummer and that he'd been there 50 years.
Well Kiss pretty much is Gene. He bought out Ace and Peter's characters, then later bought half of Paul's character when he was going through a tough divorce.
So Kiss is 87.5% Gene and 12.5% Paul.
Remember back in the day when Vinnie Vincent et.al had to make up their own silly makeup?
Oops, edit to fix math.
