Coffee Talk with Joey Kramer: Aerosmith’s Legendary Drummer-Turned-Coffee Master
Prepare for the Cold Weather With This Great Guide!
For over forty years Aerosmith’s drummer Joey Kramer has been pounding away on the skins, providing the rhythm to classics such as “Dream On,” “Walk This Way,” and “Kings and Queens.” The band has won four Grammy awards, sold millions of records, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and has earned innumerable other accolades along the way, but the rampant success of his beloved band has not been quite enough to satiate Joey Kramer’s thirst for adventure. During a reprieve from Aerosmith’s busy schedule, the Rock legend has now struck out on a new journey, founding and running a line of flavorful coffees aimed to please every palate and provide a delectable cup to everyone from the occasional coffee-drinker to those who can’t start their day without one.
