“If ‘sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll’ is what you want, it’s what you’ll get in these photo-laden pages. Kramer’s style is honest, straightforward and pulls no punches.”
— Publishers Weekly

Cash meets The Heroin Diaries in Hit Hard: Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer’s moving and inspiring story of fighting personal demons, as well as a wildly glamorous, crazy, drug-addled, behind-the-drum-set look at one of the greatest bands in rock n’ roll history. From never-before-told Aerosmith war stories across their entire 40 year career to Joey’s own struggles with addiction and depression, Hit Hard is only the second authorized biography of the band—following the New York Times bestseller Walk This Way—and the first autobiography from any Aerosmith band member.

Listener Opinions

    " As an Aerosmith fan since my teens, I really, really wanted to like this book a lot. Most of it, save for childhood stuff, is rehashed stuff from "Walk this Way." Though there were more details about more recent times. "Walk this Way" was definitely better. "

    " This was by far one of the better autobiographies that I have read. He is very concise and gets right down to it without blame or bitterness. Really good! "

    " I'm not sure when I started reading this book what I expected, but it wasn't the story I ended up reading. I have been a fan of Aerosmith for years and have been lucky enough to have seen them in concert. I have also enjoyed books on the music heros of mine. But there was more to this story than just the rise/fall/ and rise again of Aerosmith and Joey Kramer. There is a gut wrenching story about his battle with depression and the excesses of being a rock star. Also he put acrossed very well how he felt as an outsider most if not all of his life. I walk away from this thinking highly of the man. "

    " Ah, the excesses of the rock 'n roll lifestyle. He may be clean and sober, but the grandiosity has not left his personality. Good for people who are into drumming and Aerosmith fans "
