-- Well yeah that we have old and dear friend the buyers who stop by this morning Joey Kramer of Aerosmith who looks fantastic. And I see you want younger everyday -- -- -- -- -- be looking for anti event I'm really really well yeah downwind Aerosmith where were you guys do relate with South America or just came back. South America but. Earlier this year rouge we just finished up than to rush drill all the New Zealand Singapore Japan. Thailand. And South America position and now it's taken a little bit of time off and then we're gonna go back from may to do Europe and there will be back in the -- US today. Well I liked that some of the next summer yellow arrows July and August Aerosmith tour United States now and what it's been a couple years that you played here in the yeah -- the -- you know I think how they're regular house Stephen -- and everybody is doing so good it's Philly -- I don't wanna talk about it -- waiting for likely. -- got the next thing that's gonna happen like it yeah everybody everybody is really good yeah I think we've finally gotten to the point where everybody understands and appreciates. What it is that we do how we do it and what what it's -- about how blessed we are. To be it would do we do -- only to like thirty years for everybody electric -- and a little later than ever. How -- -- ice is the working on a solo record. And that's what I hear ya. Now do you think he'll ask you need guys -- like the plan monitor. I don't know that yes that's going to be seeing but I really couldn't tell I don't know a whole lot about it. So Joey Kramer is now on the poppy business yes sun and and tell me how I assume you love -- I am completely addicted to copy Eric -- until the government bans it and I have to -- the black market. I'm -- Atlanta athletic it's like there -- on you know it's like -- in the copy business. Well you know I've always had a passion for coffee I've always -- coffee. And it's just something that I've wanted to do for a long time because I knew I've always wanted to have my own business yeah -- never really had a time -- the -- do it. Because my whole life was taken over harassment. As -- now we're having a little bit of time in between the two is are we doing. I'm taken advantage of it and so like now I'm off. Aerosmith time wise -- -- the harassment clock and now I'm traveling around on the road doing the usual knee injuries and and in stores fruit from my province Iraq in a rush from. And it you know it's -- and I love working with people. And I need something to call my own. And that's what this is it's like not it's not the first thing I said of people we go to do like retail deal is that it's not. Just another celebrity putting his name on something to make -- you know on the CEO of the company I go to all the meetings and make all the decisions. It's my baby -- And so -- and I'm really enjoying it. I agree do Zogby and when I was like if those board meetings. That they're pretty interest and we love those guys appeal is a lot of those guys are pretty. They're pretty amazed when I walked in the room you know because they think they're just by reps are going to be yeah like that's not the way that it goes from affluent -- where a division while the not a bad -- I mean we just had San Diego -- was just -- -- -- that I necessarily pass and you know he made like a good you know hundred million -- -- tequila so if you do the -- way it's it's not a bad business to -- and I know you. Do you -- you -- tasting. -- -- -- -- in the garage area and change to it would with the all the -- that 2000 that I don't know before honors at an incredible show on Travel Channel that divides this guy and I was just trying to go online a final two dudes name. But he travels all over any fines being spurned -- whatever company west. And go to the -- you know yeah yeah and they do all on -- -- there's like. Thirty little -- economies today. And an amazing to be able to tell the difference yeah. But like I -- all all the coffee that we shall doesn't it doesn't go out until I give it until it gets my approval. And you know and and the coffee is roasted and packaged. And distributed right here in Massachusetts that's often in North Andover and so now do you have you ever sampled I don't believe you you offer it. But if you were sampled a copy that is made from the excrement of the monkey. No I have -- You glad I have not sampled the -- that comes from the excrement government and like he would not interested in that at this time not -- -- -- I am not that that I am I really don't have any interest in monkey. -- all right Joey Kramer of Aerosmith this -- that would be a good name for coffee monkey duty -- Nokia. The actual actual name of and probably something that has happened backstage somewhere and Aerosmith -- not that you're. I -- it was I'm not going in there you know you go to the on tomorrow you're going to be Roche Brothers and marsh field mr. high and so that's from noon until one my old stomping ground yet really into the Marshall my W has lived all you guys are -- -- -- philosophers Stephen isn't. I actually Stephen was on the South -- funny when when we lived and we all lived on the -- sure yeah me and Brad. And Stephen. All lived on the same -- really yet. Yeah and and I really I can imagine what that must have been -- -- it was it was ridiculous yeah. How ridiculous it is interesting that still hasn't. Out there. Well that you know he he and Antonio it was it's the live here yeah there there was the gone. Death spreads in Nashville Joe's employer. And Austin you now how do you like -- -- -- Massachusetts at all I can't say that I do really a mission like I'm. I have I miss my friends yeah. You know because I have a lot of old buddies from here because I lived here for forty years yeah. So I have a lot of really good friends here. And I'm here often and I still spend a lot of time in Boston has bought -- will always -- -- -- -- -- and you know that's where the band is from a program started as it is just. My routine just who. But Austin's lots of that but Austin is you know it's funny -- -- then. You really don't know -- here in Texas death. Because the geography of Boston is very much like New England alone is only without the crap you either get. A bit Houston -- that we'll use -- in Dallas and much much more humid yeah and hotter and their -- city like yeah where is -- I live in I live in the hill country with -- hill country and that then the geography -- -- very much like New -- you know -- ruling goes green grass trees -- farms. I just -- torture -- little bit. What do you like -- 101000 square foot house -- couple -- into Opel. Six I think now. How does America -- that's. Tom how cars yet now right. Right now for. -- car yes I get anything no -- I -- think people whole lot more cars but you know you -- I can't keep up with them. You know like when I lived in Rhode Island demarche -- had a ten car garage right now and it just got silly yeah. Nobody can only drive -- -- -- -- that's correct and my my love for cars is just you know if it continues to grow yeah and there's so many out there try and so little time to try the -- button now I just you looking forward to him what -- you want if you could have anything right now what would you want. -- idea. I don't know you know I've I've had pretty much -- -- out there and -- think -- -- But yeah the one car that I stuck with which are working on my -- For a fifth one. Is I have the newest iteration of the and the Audi. I had the -- to be ten plus that I just I just took delivery of about a month ago he liked acting on the awesome at the end I can't unload the car you have I've had Ferrari's and Lambeau was in the I've read every haters out there. And it's the friendliest car and drives the best of -- -- Joey -- here let me mention. Again that rock and -- to copy you can meet -- hang out -- -- try to copy I would assume console. At Roche Brothers in marsh field mash field that's noon -- one tomorrow and then. Matt Roche Brothers in Roxbury. From three until four -- the -- You got it yes that's what is I always like to ask this of the rockers -- you continue to play when you've had great success you've made a ton of money you probably don't need that money anymore why not just retire. And enjoy your life instead of going on -- Well because that's what we do that's what we enjoy in life that it's that you know for an an Aerosmith. Because. You know because a lot of different things it's never been about the money for -- And I think that's probably. A lot of the reason why we're still around and you were around and will will look at on our 43 year. And and still the original -- still the original five guys. There's no not now other than this other than the stones. When who was around when you guys started if anybody that can say that they're still around now -- -- not only just being around them but with the original one yeah there's nobody I nobody is there any nobody that I know. Miami and Jerry in the pacemakers and now and I. They'll have pacemaker could. Be serious there's nobody other than you guys and the stones. And the stones don't even have the original episodes -- it's 43 years young lineup yet. At them it's amazing if you come to show today like we we just finish up America we just did. Ten or twelve of the best shows that I've ever seen -- yeah and you know -- the band just keeps getting better it's like. It's it's weird now how long do you think you play for. You know I don't I don't really see -- I don't think any of us really see any reason to stop yeah. I mean the only reason I would stop this because I was physically incapacitated. And I couldn't play yeah you know -- in my job is really physical. But that's one of the things that I've always loved about it to have always been able to embrace that. Yeah and and I I love that it keeps me in a certain place and -- he and now and keep your blood flown and you know rock and -- -- what it's all about so when you ask me. Why oh why don't we just sit back and retire and enjoy life if I retired my life should be over like he'd like all -- toys and even in the -- even with the ban even if I left the band. I would I would continue along the same lines doing the coffee. Because from dealing with a lot of the same people a lot of fans and I love dealing with people and I love our fans does. It's all about the fans is that if it wasn't for them to begin -- The whole thing wouldn't even wouldn't exist in the end I. I guarantee you this is a text from -- the -- from Russia -- been around just. Yeah. It like she was huge rush him. But who somebody's it's easy top all of those and about -- that -- -- about the same time as he got is actually they did they did yeah but there's very few act now do you feel like. Worse after a shown now that -- use dude just because like me I get up in the morning in on India aches and pains. You know are you. Like do you feel like an athlete after like it would like Tom Brady after a game well. I you know basically I am not when I'm in the gym every day Monday through Friday. And I trained really hard to go out and do a tour so that basically what I'm doing -- my trainer is and I train harder in the -- Then then the amount of energy I expand on the stage so by the time I'm ready to go out on the road. Do -- show is his whole life easier and at the end of a show or at the end of -- tour. Now -- and I feel really good. -- regular recommendation and justice system base camp Barack DeRozan now I. Yeah Giuliani gets into -- Rob -- yes. I I do I have to say I do drink coffee before I go on now. But you know but I don't drink it during now or after -- -- you know I I feel really good. You know -- bandit is just. We're we're peaking mean you know for a bunch of guys that are orange. You know I think we do pretty damn good. Here's here's the Texas as if you had to play with -- one of the following would you pick Justin Bieber Miley Cyrus -- JC. Rihanna or Elton John. Elton John well. I'm -- I want to let that -- John otherwise none of the -- that. Would you -- would -- To work out -- you know -- -- to keep -- working. Yeah I think it you know that's a Miley just works nationals who she is -- -- -- -- -- to. No right. -- -- -- All right and then what about the bomb what about the new album I went with what they so tour next summer here in American. Well we just released an album that actually a year this money here -- it's it would -- we view -- you guys in the studio all the time Mario. We're now in the studio whirlwind what we're restore -- to work and yeah. Because. You know this that there's a whole other conversation yeah but you know where music is going since we started you know in the early seventies. It's just it's you know it's a little too disposable for a and we do a record like the last record that we did. Those songs. Will become classics. Just like the ones that we play now simply because they've been around so long and people liked him as much as they do but it. And most backs are not selling. A lot of records yeah you know there's only got a minute guys and they just isn't opposable is that we use the bully you know the Justin Bieber is an innate human values of the world. You know those Saunders knows -- directors and I don't think anybody is going to be listening to those of fifteen to twenty years down the line -- okay so they're having their fifteen minutes. That's what it's all come to now. You know there are no there are no actually I heard a ban on the radio last night in Texas. That just knocked me out wish I didn't at which I never. It never happens to me and the band is called. Vintage trouble. Sheila you know you know show now -- I think -- I think they're young -- played some club. Tomorrow night put. They've played once on this primary -- -- hours. So -- thing in music industry this is interesting to me because I music industry wise you have beavers and that if somebody looks at Bieber. And Kanye West as he goes well you know the gigantic selling so many records and did but you think that those. If you cannot gigantic in my what you need for me personally yeah because when. It pissed me something something that's gigantic. Is not a B&B it is it is technically and I understand what you're saying. But to me. Something that's gigantic is more along the lines of something that's not only as financially successful. But it is also are fully successful. And and and also means that much to that many people you're dealing with -- the new -- audiences you're talking about. Are the same audiences as the artist death and when they're fifteen minutes -- -- they're not listening to that anymore but -- sure there are already onto the next thing yeah. But don't think that because I've thought about this don't you think that. Technology and you know I'm talking about social networks. Owns its Smartphones. -- television but don't you think that all that stuff really plays a hand in this because when I was. You know in and when I was at a show over regional in the in the in the eighties. And I was an Aerosmith fan and and I wanted to get that a meaningless that great at the graduate and an act well like I mean I mean -- When I was young. -- looks a monkey do these are gonna judge. Joey Kramer's -- from harassment when I was a young announcement can. The only way active find out about -- billionaire I have an idea -- flat and how is the only -- I could find out about you guys was to buy the album and look at the at that at the liner notes right and to. I couldn't go on the Internet I could you know maybe I could try to read something in my. -- I I can relate so don't think that because Bieber is all about the image and cholera or Miley you have exactly the idea and that's exactly my point it's all about social media at -- he's a product of social media yeah not because of the quality of renewed it right. Has nothing to do exactly that reason is secondary yeah so eventually ten years from now nobody's gonna remember without Justin Bieber was there you go except for Justin Bieber. Possible -- prostitute. -- and then and then in the process you know he's he's patient and places that he shouldn't be persistent and -- in the wrong things by the wrong people. Yeah it. -- upon. I'd like to see you kick his ass but frankly I'm uncomfortable. And I have to. All right Joey -- I guess this is that this is Jim hello Jim. Majority. Without. They're very very. I close dialogue but there were an individual with a big lie indirect at the coffee you know old -- find it. -- -- -- You love the -- out. News loves the hoping you I got. I -- the core idea and I think it was the only you'll be in the public that. Ethiopia Ethiopian. Drinking man that's my favorite Ethiopia Ethiopia favorite yeah. Yeah those great those great book that I want it it'll give it a couple of Portland today that I think that all parents should take their kids. -- -- -- Currency our kids particularly but -- -- data -- cigarettes -- -- -- has openly but -- also told them -- -- that the different music I would until. In the music you listen to music I was into you'll never get sick of and they don't get sick of the music my kids say they had to promote that else that's on that of course all need to look toward the attic. That's lonely yeah absolutely. I see that you guys never get sick of this music out -- now. Now why I think it's I mean it you're talking about plastics now you look at rock and roll and rock and country music is huge. More of rockets struggled a little bit it do you think that's because. Labels are not interested in and and in the in the lock John right or they're just -- could rock bands right now. You don't. Tell me rock band that's out there. Like Kings of Leon. Become what does that really rock and roll. Yeah I think -- right I mean. There are bands out there that I like yeah I mean I love the Foo Fighters now and I love no doubt. And I look I love Green Day -- you know but it's just it's just not saying yeah you know why is that. Why is that because everything moves on you know it's progression it's it's it's you know it's moving on it's becoming. What it needs to be. Who knows maybe we'll come back around and and rock and roll get you know really popular here. Like the band that I mentioned you before when I heard that on the radio my ears perk up because it's like. It's what tweets -- done yes and it and and and I hear it I go wow what's that what's good usually -- radios just like come on in the background you know because it's all the same. You do it will be a monkey that monkey I don't eat cookie and candy do you may prevent -- you can catch it that's a recognizable name appreciate. -- You can't be dropping acid bombs the public's airwaves I mean -- -- People are gonna be banning trans fat that you swearing gallery.
