Bookstore Appearance

Joey Kramer of Aerosmith


Joey Kramer of Aerosmith will be stopping by the SX Bookstore to greet registrants and sign copies of his book, Hit Hard: A Story of Hitting Rock Bottom at the Top. This is NOT just another rock 'n' roll memoir. In addition to the never-before-told Aerosmith war stories that abound in the book, Hit Hard unpacks the history of a rock star who was both fragile and tough, who after years of insane wildness became willing to accept help and finally kick a serious alcohol and drug addiction, only to find that the real terrors and hard work were still ahead. "I love this book; this is an important book, because it's not bullshit. Joey had the balls to see what was underneath the hood, and to fix it. Being a rock star was easy compared to that." — (From the Foreword by NIKKI SIXX, author of The Heroin Diaries) For more information on Joey Kramer visit and for Aerosmith Follow Joey Kramer on Twitter at
