AEROSMITH Bassist Forced To Sit Out Shows

AEROSMITH bassist Tom Hamilton will be sitting out some dates of the "Guitar Hero: Aerosmith Presents Aerosmith" tour dates with special guests ZZ TOP as he recuperates from non-invasive surgery. Filling in for Tom will be David Hull, a longtime friend of the band who played in the JOE PERRY PROJECT and who sat in for Tom on various shows in 2006. When Steven Tyler, Joe Perry and Joey Kramer return to the road on July 15 at Lakewood Amphitheatre in Atlanta, Georgia, they’ll be welcoming back Brad Whitford, who has recovered from a recent surgery after having sat out the opening dates of the tour.

Kramer told "The Danny Bonaduce Show", which airs on the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania radio station 94 WYSP, that AEROSMITH singer Steven Tyler ripped a leg muscle on June 29 in Connecticut, causing the band to cancel a string of concerts.

Tyler had surgery on both feet last year, telling The Pulse of Radio that 30-plus years of performing live had caught up with him. "The way I dance around onstage, it's taken its toll," he said. "They've got to take the nerves out and, you know, it hurts like hell. You know, I've just about destroyed my feet. But I never feel it when I'm onstage, I'll tell you that much."
