Aerosmith drummer says they're better live than The Stones

Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer said that his band are better live than The Rolling Stones.

Aerosmith revealed last year that their 2017 ‘Aerovederci’ UK and European tour would be their last.

When speaking to Classic Rock recently Kramer said: “First of all, as far as Aerosmith goes there is no band that has been around for almost 50 years that still has the original five guys in the band.”

Everybody is always raving about the Stones, saying the Stones this and the Stones that. I’ve never cared for the Stones.

“They never had anything to offer me musically, especially in the drumming department.”

He went on to say that The Stones are not an original band.

“The Stones is not the original band and I do not care for them. I think if you came to see an Aerosmith concert, people would realise that we play so much better than them that it’s silly because they’re not so good live.”

“Yeah, they are what they are and all of that, but I don’t think there’s a band out there today that does what we do.”
