“If ‘sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll’ is what you want, it’s what you’ll get in these photo-laden pages. Kramer’s style is honest, straightforward and pulls no punches.”
— Publishers Weekly

Cash meets The Heroin Diaries in Hit Hard: Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer’s moving and inspiring story of fighting personal demons, as well as a wildly glamorous, crazy, drug-addled, behind-the-drum-set look at one of the greatest bands in rock n’ roll history. From never-before-told Aerosmith war stories across their entire 40 year career to Joey’s own struggles with addiction and depression, Hit Hard is only the second authorized biography of the band—following the New York Times bestseller Walk This Way—and the first autobiography from any Aerosmith band member.

Joey Kramer does touch on his relationship with the other "bad boys from Boston," but once you flip through the first few pages, you realize instantly that this is an honestly brutal book that gives you a firsthand account of Joey's personal journey, from childhood to the present time.
