When I heard the rockin’ pepaws of Aerosmith were reuniting with Run DMC on the Grammy stage, I figured this would surely get all the middle-aged folks at home in their Ralph Lauren khakis and Eileen Fischer cardigans hot and bothered thinking of the glorious one-night stands they had back in the 80s with someone they most certainly aren’t married to at the moment. Considering Aerosmith’s ongoing drummer boy drama with OG-but-exiled drummer Joey Kramer, I had a feeling this thing might also be messy. Would Joey somehow be allowed to perform or would they just bring in Pasqually E. Pieplate, the drummer of the Chuck E. Cheese band?! Who knows on music’s biggest night?!

As one old man feud ends, another takes its place. Aerosmith is currently in a messy fight over who gets to perform at several Grammy events this weekend. Joey Kramer, who has been the drummer for Aerosmith since the beginning, naturally assumed he’d be present. But Aerosmith doesn’t think Joey is ready to return after Joey’s temporary disability, and they decided to replace him. Joey says he’s all better now, and he’s really not happy that everyone will be jamming out to Aeorsmith (minus their original drummer) this weekend.
Aerosmith had to cancel a few shows at the tail end of a tour in South America due to “health reasons” relating to Hamptonswear enthusiast Steven Tyler. And since we’re all a little jumpy these days, especially considering that we just lost Tom Petty, people freaked out and speculated that Steven was in a bad way. According to a statement on the band’s website, some folks thought that Steven had suffered from a heart attack or seizure. Well, Steven wants everybody to calm the fuck down! He’s fine.
Ford, sure. Trump, no. Even dead rock stars want Trump to cut the shit and stop using their music. George Harrison’s estate didn’t feel the enthusiasm when Ivanka Trump strolled out to introduce her rotting naranja father accompanied by the The Beatles’ “Here Comes The Sun” at the RNC this past week.
