JOEY KRAMER: GOOD GUY, SURVIVOR
Steven Tyler isn't the only guy from Aerosmith releasing a book: drummer Joey Kramer puts out Hit Hard later this month. Kramer has been through a lot: a harsh alcohol and drug addiction, a car incident where he was pretty badly burned, and a bout with depression that led to the band almost recording an album with a different drummer (thankfully they didn't do that).
He's also celebrating his birthday at Aerosmith's June 21 show by inviting 20 soldiers who were wounded in Iraq or Afghanistan to the show as his special guests. That's something that anyone can applaud.
