BOSTON — Aerosmith’s drummer is suing his bandmates because they won’t let him play as the band is set to perform and be honored at Grammy events this week.

Joey Kramer argues in a lawsuit filed in Massachusetts that the band is in breach of contract because it required him to re-audition for his job after an injury last year.

He wants a judge to order that he be allowed to join the Boston-launched band as it receives the 2020 MusiCares Person of the Year award on Friday and performs at the Grammy Awards show Sunday.
