Aerosmith made an appearance at the Grammys last night (26 January) for a performance of Living on the Edge, before they brought out Run-D.M.C. to revisit their 1986 collaboration with Walk This Way. The band also paid tribute to basketball star Kobe Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash on the day of the ceremony.

Notably absent from the performance was drummer Joey Kramer, who recently attempted to sue the band for disallowing his appearance at the Grammys. However, courts decided, as Kramer had not played with the band since 2019 due to injury, it was reasonable that his bandmates did not ask him not to take part.

Aerosmith had been awarded the MusiCares Person Of The Year award, joining Fleetwood Mac, David Crosby, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and many more recipients since the award’s inception in 1991.

Watch a clip from the performance below:


Aerosmith have also been confirmed to appear at Glastonbury 2020, however won’t be taking up a headline slot, playing on the Saturday – the same day that Paul McCartney is due to headline.
