AEROSMITH: We're Better Than The Stones [UPDATED]

posted by Nard -

[UPDATE]

Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton doesn't agree with drummer Joey Kramer's recent criticism of The Rolling Stones.

Among the questionable comments Kramer made in an interview with Classic Rock magazine:

“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.”"We play so much better than them that it’s silly because they’re not so good live... 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.”

‏Hamilton has since tweeted, "Oops! I love Joey but I also think the Stones are one of the bands that define ROCK! Been a fan since I was 12."


[ORIGINAL STORY]

Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer has taken a cheap shot at The Rolling Stones and their gentlemanly drummer, Charlie Watts.

Speaking to Classic Rock magazine, Kramer says, “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 also goes onto say that if you go to an Aerosmith concert, people will "realize that we play so much better than them that it’s silly because they’re not so good live... 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.”

Aerosmith will announce its fall U.S. tour next month.
