AEROSMITH drummer Joey Kramer has been named as one of the new inductees into the Bronx Walk Of Fame, according to Launch.Although AEROSMITH are known as a Boston band, Kramer was born and raised in the Bronx, one of the five boroughs that make up New York City, while frontman Steven Tyler comes from Yonkers, just north of the Bronx. Kramer and the rest of this year's honorees — including hip-hop artist DJ Red Alert, sportscaster Michael Kay, former middleweight boxing champion Jake LaMotta, and others — will be officially inducted into the Bronx Walk Of Fame on June 22. Kramer released this statement: "I've received my share of honors, but this one hits home because it's about home. Rumor has it that as a drummer I keep good time. The fact is that as a person I keep great company. Besides my brothers in AEROSMITH, it's unbelievably cool to join the likes of [Secretary Of State] Colin Powell, ['2001: A Space Odyssey' director] Stanley Kubrick, [the TV voice of the Yankees] Michael Kay, [talk-show host] Regis Philbin, and [former NBA star] Nate 'Tiny' Archibald on the Bronx Walk Of Fame."
