Joey Kramer is simply one of the greatest drummers of all time. Anyone involved in rock music today would be hard pressed to say they weren't, in some way, influenced by Aerosmith; one of the most popular bands of all time.
Joey's playing defines what rock drumming is all about; a deep, solid groove, tasteful fills and rock solid time. Coming from the school of "less is more", Joey's drumming is as much a part of Aerosmith's sound as Steven Tyler's voice, and Joe Perry's guitar.
"I've never even tried any other cymbals. I've heard other people play other types and that has never made me even want to check anything else out. Zildjians are crisper, purer and cleaner. I've played Zildjian my whole life...There is no other choice."
Joey uses A Zildjians and Z Customs and his Joey Kramer Artist Series Drumsticks.
