        Aerosmith star injured as car bursts into flames
        By Lauren Beckham Falcone

        Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer thanked a guardian angel for helping him escape death after his Ferrari burst into flames at a Scituate gas station early Wednesday night.

        “Definitely somebody is looking out for me up there, and I’m grateful to him,” he told reporters yesterday. Kramer, 48, who lives in Marshfield, was sitting in his 1998 Ferrari 355 at Scarsilloni’s Sunoco on Route 3A in Scituate about 6 p.m. when the car sudde nly erupted into flames.

        “From the time I pulled up to the pump to the time of the fire was only about 10 seconds,” he said. “I was sitting in my car, I looked down into my wallet to get my credit card, I looked up, and the car was engulfed in flames. My only thought was to get out!” he said.

        The musician leaped out of the blazing sportscar, but not before fire singed his hair, face, arm and legs. A quick-thinking 16-year old gas attendant pulled him away from the burning vehicle. “The only way I could get out was through the flames,” said Kramer, who was treated for second-degree burns at South Shore Hospital [in Weymouth] Wednesday night and later released.

        His left arm, from hand to elbow, is swollen and bandaged as well as his lower right leg and most of his left leg. “My left arm got burned because I put it up to protect my head. I can’t really move those fingers right now. The bandages have to be changed twice a day, other than that all I can do is wait to see how I heal,” he said.

        Aerosmith spokeswomen Luke Burland said the drummer was “doing well and the show will go on,” meaning the injuries won’t hinder the re-start of the band ’s Nine Lives tour, starting in Raleigh, N.C. Aug. 14. “I don’t think there will be any change in plan as far at the tour schedule, if anything it will only be pushed back a week. The doctors will be able to give me a better idea in about a week when the swelling goes down and they can see how well the burns are healing. This band’s been though so much shit, it’s going to take more than this to bring us down,” he said.

        They’re scheduled to play at Great Woods in Mansfield Aug. 20. No foul play is suspected, but the state fire marshal’s office is investigating how gas pooled under the car and what caused it to ignite.

        Roger Andrey, owner of Gaston Andrey Ferrari of Boston, said Ferrari has had trouble with car fuel lines in the past, but it was “premature to make any kind of conclusion about what happened.” “The cars are fabulous,” he said. “They really are very good cars. Thank God he wasn’t hurt too badly.”

        Kramer said, “Yes, I went to church a few days ago. No, I was not smoking in the car; I don’t smoke. I’m definitely going to look into why my car caught fire. You don’t expect a one-hundred-fifty-thousand-dollar car to burst into flames. If they’re at fault, Ferrari will be hearing from me.

        Also I want to get the word out to people that in Massachusetts Full Serve Pumps are not required to have a foam extinguishing system. Only Self Serve Pumps do, and that needs to be changed. I’ll be looking into ways of getting those laws changed.”

        [When asked if he was going to get another Ferrari he said, “Well I’ve had four and they’ve all ended up pretty much like this one. I guess the writing ’s on the wall about that.”

        Kramer isn’t the only injured member of Aerosmith. Singer Steven Tyler recently underwent knee surgery after he whacked his knee with a microphone stand during a concert in Alaska.

        Gasoline leak eyed in car fire that injured Aerosmith's drummer
        By Stephen Kiehl, Globe correspondent

        The investigation into the cause of a car fire that injured Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer in Scituate Wednesday night focused yesterday on a pool of gasoline that witnesses saw underneath the car before the fire: how it got there and how it was ignited. Kramer, 46, suffered second-degree burns on his left arm and minor burns on his legs. He was pulled from his burning 1998 Ferrari by an attendant at Scarsillino's Sunoco on Route 3A.

        Kramer was sitting in the driver's seat when the flames engulfed the car. He was released after treatment at South Shore Hospital in Weymouth. Kramer could not be reached for comment yesterday. The gasoline may have leaked from a ruptured fuel line or a faulty gasoline pump, said fire officials. The tip of the nozzle of the gasoline hose snapped off inside the fuel tank of Kramer's Ferrari. The fumes from the pool of gasoline may have been ignited by the intense, 1,500-degree heat generated by the car's catalytic converters, authorities said.

        Investigators also said yesterday that the car was running while the gasoline tank was being filled, which is illegal and increases the chance of fire. The engine in the Ferrari is in the middle of the car, near the gasoline tank.

        "If the fuel line had lost its integrity and the product leaking our of the fuel line puddled underneath the car and came in contact with hot engine parts, there is the potential of fire," said Scituate Deputy Fire Chief Charles Curran.

        The fire, which produced flames that reached 15 feet, destroyed the car and damaged a gasoline pump. The owner of the station, Gerald Gorman, said the pump was in good condition and that it had serviced "thousands" of cars without incident. Making sure that a motorist shuts off his car engine while fueling is the responsibility of a gasoline station owner.

        Gorman said he did not know whether the Ferrari's engine was running when it was being fueled. Investigators said they have not decided whether to press the issue.

        An Aerosmith spokeswoman said Kramer is resting at his home in Marshfield Hills with his wife. An Aerosmith tour will go forward as scheduled later this summer, including an Aug. 20 show at Great Woods.

      The REAL time is on Friday night, July 17th, 1998 at 2:30 A.M. Eastern US time.

      The reason lists "The Midnight Special" on 1:00 A.M. is because VH-1 now shows 4 episodes of "The Midnight Special" beginning at 1:00 A.M. and lasting until 3:00. They are all half hour shows and Aerosmith's is the forth

  • "The Midnight Special"
      "The Midnight Special" episode with Aerosmith is going to be broadcast on VH-1 on Friday, July 17th 1998 @ 2:30 P.M.

      This is the episode where Aerosmith performs "Train Kept A Rollin' !" And the one where the boyz are really drunk! As Tom Hamilton wrote in "Walk This Way: The Autobiography Of Aerosmith" on pages 220-221:

      "At the end of June [1974], we flew to Los Angeles to tape "The Midnight Special", an early rock concert show broadcast on NBC at 1 A.M. on Friday nights. We got up before dawn so we could be as loaded on Jack Daniel's to play "Train [Kept A Rollin']" at the 10 A.M. taping as we were for a regular 9 P.M. show. I never drank during the day and we really sucked. (Little Richard was the host, Wolfman Jack was the announcer, and we were on with Kool and the Gang, Golden Earring, and David Clayton-Thomas. The show was broadcast on August 16th, 1974.)"

      So I guess this is the first showing of their performance in 24 years!!! Here's the set list for this half-hour show VH-1 has listed on their web site:

      1} Little Richard "The Midnight Special"
      2} Little Richard "Ooh Poo Pah Doo"
      3} Aerosmith - "Train Kept a Rollin"

  • 50 North American Dates Announced (LONG)
      NEW YORK, July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- After a three month break from the road, America's premier rock band, Aerosmith, will return to the United States on August 14 for a seventeen week run of dates that will include 26 outdoor summer concerts, followed by a further seven weeks of indoor shows. Taking in 50 cities across 22 of the country's Mid-West, Eastern and Southern states, together with three stops in Canada, this latest leg of the 'Nine Lives' World Tour will include all of the 18 shows that were postponed when singer Steven Tyler injured his knee at the end of April.

      Kicking off at the Walnut Creek Amphitheater in Raleigh, NC and finishing up some four months later in Louisville, KY, the band's already-year-long tour (which was launched last May in support of their multi-platinum album 'Nine Lives', - Columbia Records), has been hailed by critics across the country as their best ever.

      Following hot on the heels of the release of their hit single 'I Don't Want To Miss A Thing' (from the upcoming blockbuster Touchstone Pictures, movie release 'Armageddon' - July 1), the 50 new dates will take the band's audience figures for the 'Nine Lives' world tour to well over 2.5 million, at 169 shows across three continents. Highlights of this spectacular run include headline slots at a series of prestigious festivals in Europe, two capacity New Year's Eve shows in their home-town of Boston, a special anniversary concert celebrating 20 years of sold-out shows at New York's Madison Square Garden and a record-breaking stadium tour of Japan, which marked the first time that an international act has ever been able to complete a sold out dome tour of the country.

      On stage for more than two hours each night, the five original band members (Steven Tyler - vocals, Joe Perry - guitars, Tom Hamilton - bass, Brad Whitford - guitars, Joey Kramer - drums) are performing better than ever before, playing songs that span their rich and controversial career.

      What the papers are saying:

      "With a band like Aerosmith everybody is able to enjoy the show... it is an experience that empowers the soul." (Moscow Pullman Daily News; Idaho)

      "After twenty years, Band's got 'What It Takes'. Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Brad Whitford, Tom Hamilton and Joey Kramer show up to play - and by the time their two-hour show came to a close, they had pretty much blown the roof off the joint." (Muskegon Chronicle; MI)

      "I have been to several different rock concerts, but nothing had prepared me for the adrenaline-pumping rock and roll bomb blast that I witnessed in Charleston Friday night... The roar of the crowd and the excitement raged on for over two hours as Aerosmith rocked the city." (Webster Echo; Webster Springs, WV)

      "Led by the forever young Steven Tyler, the crowd was treated to more than two hours of Aerosmith, complete with over-the-top staging, high drama and high jinks." (Kalamzaoo Gazette; MI)

      "Perry's rifts were as smooth and well-rehearsed as if crunching from the album, yet his years of experience made it look as easy as walking a dog." (Daily Cardinal, Madison, WI)
