AEROSMITH DRUMMER'S TRIBUTE TO WOUNDED SOLDIERS

AEROSMITH drummer JOEY KRAMER will celebrate his June 21 birthday with 20 wounded warriors he has invited to be his personal guests at the band’s show that night at Nissan Pavilion in Bristow, VA, near Washington, DC. The Marines and Sailors--who all served in Iraq or Afghanistan— are from the National Naval Medical Center and are currently receiving treatment/therapy for their injuries. Some are single leg amputees; others have suffered blast injuries (shrapnel wounds), burns, and traumatic brain injuries.

“I can't think of a better gift to receive on my birthday than to have the privilege of sharing a night of our music with these brave and heroic warriors who have been wounded in the service of our country,” KRAMER says.
