Wife of Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer dead at 55

Linda Kramer, the wife of Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer, passed away last month at the age of 55.

The Boston Globe reports the Kramer family has now issued a statement on her June 22 passing while not providing any further details about a cause of death.

The media outlet notes that Joey – a founding member of Aerosmith – announced in March that he was taking a temporary leave of absence from the band to “focus his full attention on his family during these uncertain times,” according to news at the time.

The family said Linda “was the love of Joey’s life” and the couple was “inseparable.” Joey once described meeting his future wife as “the biggest rush you ever had in your life.”

According to an obituary via The Boston Herald, Linda worked in the high-tech industry most recently as a contract administrator for Hewitt Packard.

There are no services planned at this time, with services to be held by the family at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the St. Jude's Children's Research Center in Memphis, TN and/or K-9 Angels Rescue in Houston, TX.

Linda passed away the day after Joey’s 72nd birthday.

Aerosmith are scheduled to return to live action with a September 4 show in Bangor, ME and a homecoming event at Boston’s Fenway Park on September 8 before the band resumes a Las Vegas residency. See also:
