Biography

Joseph Michael “Joey” Kramer (born June 21, 1950 in The Bronx, New York City, United States) is the drummer for the Hard rock band Aerosmith. It was Kramer who named the band in 1973. Kramer briefly attended the Thornton Donovan School. According to the band’s autobiography, Walk This Way, Kramer was frequently the one collecting money owed to the group.

His first writing credit with the band was “Pandora’s Box” on their second album, Get Your Wings. Of all the members of the band, Kramer has written the fewest songs.

Kramer’s son’s Jessey also plays drums. He filled in for Joey in 2005 at several Aerosmith shows while Joey was recovering from strained muscles.

Kramer and his wife April live in Marshfield, Massachusetts. They have a second home in South Florida which has been damaged by storms and rebuilt. Kramer also collects foreign sports cars.

During the formation of Aerosmith, it was Joey Kramer who suggested the name “Aerosmith” for the group of young musicians.
