Aerosmith’s ‘Steven Tyler quit’ comment ‘misquoted’, says Joey Kramer

But the drummer refuses to deny singer has left the band

Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer has said that his band have been misquoted with regard to stories suggesting singer Steven Tyler had left the band.

Guitarist Joe Perry recently said that Tyler had left the band set-up, but that they were still set to continue without him. Kramer told US radio station WPLR that the comments had been taken “out of context” but did not deny that Tyler had left.

“My partners have been misquoted and their comments have been taken out of context,” he claimed. “I’m not going to make a statement about that on the radio. I’m going to make a statement about it in person.”

Kramer confirmed that Aerosmith have not broken up, whether or not Tyler has quit. “No, the band didn’t break up,” he said. “We’ve gone through a lot of stuff together. It’s been a 40-year marriage.”
