Aerosmith received the MusiCares Person of the Year Award on Friday night in Los Angeles, and while Joey Kramer got to speak, he did not perform with the band.
Kramer and Steven Tyler were actually the only two members of the band who spoke after receiving the award, and as expected, it was a little awkward (video below).
Tyler said, "Remember, people only really get interesting when they start to rattle the bars on their cages. And the best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up."
After that, Kramer leaned into the mic and said, "A shoutout for love and gratitude to MusiCares, to all our fans, to my partners, to my forever supportive wife Linda, and to you guys out there and the music industry.”
Kramer then left the stage, and according to Yahoo! Music, Aerosmith performed three songs.
