Joey Kramer, long time drummer for the hit rock band Aerosmith, has built his entire style on the “feel.” I collected an interview with Joey where he talks a little bit about what it means to be a “feel” drummer, and as he explains it, he puts his whole body and mind into what he plays. This, as you can imagine, makes for a pretty lively performance from the all star drummer. And I happened upon a live drum solo from Joey that wraps up his entire playing style and entertaining show into one video. I shared the drum solo and a great interview about Joey’s history with the band and how they have seemed to survive together. I hope you dig the two videos as much as I did!

I hope you enjoyed watching these videos from Joey Kramer. He’s made a very successful music career for himself as the drummer for Aerosmith and has shared some great advice on what it takes to be a part of a band that big. There’s more coming your way at Play Drums By Ear so stay tuned.
