Drummer Joey Kramer’s son joined Aerosmith onstage in Washington on Saturday night to replace his ailing dad.

The band was forced to scrap a show in Concord, California last week when Kramer fell ill and it was feared Saturday’s show at The Gorge would also be axed, amid reports suggesting the drummer was suffering heart-related issues.

He assured fans he was feeling fine, and the band announced Saturday’s show would not be canceled.

But it was Kramer’s son Jesse who took over his dad’s drum seat when the band hit the stage.

It wasn’t the first time Jesse has sat in for his father – he has often added percussion at Aerosmith shows in the past decade.

The band has yet to comment on Kramer’s illness, but a publicist insists he “has no history of a heart condition.”

Meanwhile the drummer says, “I’m feeling better than ever… I’ll be back sitting in the best seat in the house, hitting it harder than ever for our amazing fans.”

Aerosmith are next scheduled to hit the stage on their ongoing Let Rock Rule tour in Colorado on Tuesday night. It is not known which Kramer will join them.
