Kramer’s Son Fills In On Drums At Aerosmith Show

LAS VEGAS, NV - SEPTEMBER 22: Singer Steven Tyler and drummer Joey Kramer of Aerosmith perform onstage during the 2012 iHeartRadio Music Festival at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on September 22, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Despite tweeting he was feeling “good and groovy” after having a minor medical procedure, drummer Joey Kramer still missed Aerosmith’s Saturday show in George, Wash., but his son, Jesse, filled in for his dad on the kit.

Joey informed fans of the substitution on Twitter along with the hashtag #TheFruitDoesntFallFarFromTheTree.  Joe Perry also showed his support of Jesse by tweeting, “I will miss Joey tonight but looking forward to playing with his son Jessie [sic] Kramer who’s a kick ass drummer!”   

While the Aerosmith camp didn’t elaborate on the medical procedure Joey underwent, his wife, Linda, did confirm via Twitter that the procedure was “related to his heart.”

Aerosmith’s next show is on Tuesday (August 19th) in Denver, however, there’s no word yet as to if Joey will be back on stage.
