Aerosmith drummer sues to rejoin band for Grammy honors

Aerosmith is also set to perform a “career-spanning medley" at the Grammy Awards show Sunday night.

BOSTON (AP) — Aerosmith’s drummer, Joey Kramer, is suing his bandmates because they won’t let him play as the band is set to perform and be honored at Grammy events this week.

Kramer, a founding member of the band launched in Boston, said in a lawsuit filed this month in Massachusetts Superior Court that he has been kept out of the band after he hurt his ankle last year and missed shows, including part of the band’s lucrative residency at a Las Vegas casino.

The 69-year-old Magnolia, Texas, resident says his bandmates required him to earn his job back by performing a series of solo rehearsals to prove he could play “at an appropriate level,” according to his lawsuit.

Kramer says the band is in breach of contract, arguing the requirement is an “an artificial, made-up and undefined standard” that no other member of the band has been asked to do.

He notes in his lawsuit that singer Steven Tyler, guitarists Joe Perry and Bradley Whitford, and bassist Tom Hamilton have all been recently sidelined with injuries and illnesses and weren’t asked to re-audition for their jobs.

Kramer wants a Massachusetts judge to order he be allowed to participate in two upcoming music industry events.

Aerosmith is slated to receive the 2020 MusiCares Person of the Year award on Friday at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Alice Cooper, Foo Fighters, Jonas Brothers, John Legend and John Mayer are among the artists slated to perform as the band is recognized for its philanthropic work by the Recording Academy, which awards the Grammys.

Aerosmith is also set to perform a “career-spanning medley” at the Grammy Awards show Sunday night at the Staples Center, where the band is expected to be joined onstage by hip hop’s Run-DMC, with which it has had collaborated.

“This is not about money,” Kramer said in a statement ahead of a court hearing on the suit in Plymouth, Massachusetts, on Wednesday. “I am being deprived of the opportunity to be recognized along with my peers, for our collective, lifetime contributions to the music industry.”

Aerosmith’s lawyer and manager didn’t respond to emails seeking comment Wednesday,

But the band, in a public statement Tuesday, said it has invited Kramer to join it as it is honored at the Grammy events, saying there just not enough time to rehearse together.

“Joey Kramer is our brother; his well-being is of paramount importance to us. However he has not been emotionally and physically able to perform with the band, by his own admission, for the last 6 months,” the statement reads.

“We have missed him and have encouraged him to rejoin us to play many times but apparently he has not felt ready to do so,” the statement continues. “Joey has now waited until the last moment to accept our invitation, when we unfortunately have no time for necessary rehearsals during Grammys week.”

In his lawsuit, Kramer says his fellow band members deemed his “try out” wasn’t “technically correct” and lacked “energy,” an assessment he strongly disputes.

“Nothing could be further from the truth,” he said in his statement. “I did everything they asked.”

Kramer also says it’s “devastating” that he is being prevented from being honored on the music industry’s biggest stage.

“The greatest magic and success of Aerosmith happens when all the band’s founding members are together in the house,” he said in the statement. “To be removed from my rightful place on stage to celebrate our success — a success that acknowledges my own life’s work, is just plain wrong.”


A terminally ill rescue dog became a police K-9 for a day

His owner, Kristi Kesler, worked with Mikey's Chance canine rescue to come up with bucket list for the dog she lovingly calls "Eddie Spaghetti."

A terminally ill rescue dog became a police K-9 for a day

(CNN) — Police in Pasco, Washington, turned a rescue pup with an inoperable tumor into a dashing police K-9.

The dog, Eddie, was abandoned and spent almost a month wandering in Benton City before he was rescued, CNN affiliate KEPR reported.

Diagnosed with an inoperable tumor causing him to go blind in one eye, Eddie only has six to 12 months to live. Thanks to a foster home and police, Eddie’s last months will certainly be memorable.

His owner, Kristi Kesler, worked with Mikey’s Chance canine rescue to come up with bucket list for the dog she lovingly calls “Eddie Spaghetti.”

“I thought maybe he might get his picture taken with an officer in a car, I thought maybe if he were lucky, he might go for a car ride, but I never dreamed it would be this big for him,” Kesler told KEPR.

Eddie got a custom-made uniform with real police patches and was sworn in as a police K-9 before spending the day on patrol, promising to “apprehend bad guys, search out narcotics and put people in jail.”

“We believe in helping people and that also means helping animals in our community, so we have all come together as a family and are all fighting alongside Eddie,” Detective Julie Lee told KEPR.

Officer Lee and others took Eddie to several locations around town. His first official call was to a local auto body shop for “service to pick up property,” where he received a gift basket with treats, food, and toys to take home. They even donated to his veterinarian bills.

One stop, of course, was a local doughnut shop, because Eddie wouldn’t be a real police officer without some coffee and doughnuts.

“He is just such a lover. You would never suspect that he was abused or neglected,” Detective Lee said.

Eddie’s bucket list doesn’t stop there.

Some community members offered to check other items off his list, such as pictures with Santa and a pool filled with stuffed animals, CNN affiliate KAPP reported. Kesler still hopes he can ride in a motorcycle side car and be the star of a kissing booth at an adoption event.

“These people who’ve really stepped up and said we want to make a difference in this dog’s life — it’s meant the world to know that people still do care,” Kesler told KAPP. “Having them and being able to be a part of their lives and make a difference like in Eddie, to bring this joy to him no matter how short of time it is that’s what we hold onto.”

Officer Lee told KAPP that she wants Eddie’s story to shed light on the fact that dumping animals is not the answer.

“Don’t send them to a death sentence in the middle of nowhere,” she said. “They deserve a chance at a happy life. If you can’t provide it anymore, let somebody else try to do that for them.”

CNN reached out to Mikey’s Chance but has not yet heard back.


Butler unveils new live mascot

The next Butler University live mascot has been revealed. Butler Blue IV, an American Kennel Club-Registered English Bulldog puppy, will be handled by Evan Krauss, who is succeeding Michael Kaltenmark.

INDIANAPOLIS (Inside INdiana Business) – The next Butler University live mascot has been revealed. Butler Blue IV, an American Kennel Club-registered English Bulldog puppy, will be handled by Evan Krauss, who is succeeding Michael Kaltenmark.

Kaltenmark currently owns Butler Blue III “aka Trip.” Trip is set to retire at the end of the 2019-2020 academic year due to his old age and time on the job. Kaltenmark says Trip is still in great health, however it’s time for him and Trip to take a step back.

Krauss previously worked with the Butler Blue Crew, filming video of Trip or assisting at events. He was also a part of Kaltenmark and Trip’s team where he oversaw day-to-day operations of the Butler Blue live mascot program. 

“I have been married for 16 years, and I’ve been the mascot handler for 16 years,” said Kaltenmark. “My boys are getting older, and they have schedules that compete with the mascot’s schedule. It just made sense to get out of my own way and hand this on to someone who is extremely prepared and ready for this, and that is Evan.”

Kaltenmark plans to stay involved in the live mascot program in a support role.

Butler Blue IV was born in October and officials say he will be ready to step into his mascot role full-time when Trip retires in May.

Butler Blue IV will officially be introduced to the community at his first basketball game January 24.


DC attorney general sues Trump’s inaugural committee for ‘abusing nonprofit’ funds

The lawsuit seeks to recover the amount improperly paid to the Trump hotel, and to direct those funds to suitable nonprofit purposes.

(CNN) — The attorney general for Washington, DC, filed a lawsuit on Wednesday alleging President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee abused nonprofit funds by overpaying for event space at the President’s Washington hotel for events around his 2017 inauguration.

DC Attorney General Karl Racine filed the suit against President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee, the Trump Organization and the Trump International Hotel in Washington in DC Superior Court. He accused the inaugural committee of coordinating with the Trump family to “grossly overpay” for event space at the Trump International Hotel.

“The inaugural committee made exorbitant and unlawful payments to the Trump hotel to rent event space for inaugural activity,” Racine said.

Nonprofits are legally required to ensure that their funds are used for their stated public purpose, not private interest, he added.

Racine alleged the inaugural committee was aware that it was paying far above market rates and “never considered less expensive alternatives.” The attorney general said the group also paid for space on days when it did not hold events.

The committee is accused of improperly using non-profit funds to throw a private party for the Trump family costing several hundred thousand dollars.

The lawsuit seeks to recover the amount improperly paid to the Trump hotel, and to direct those funds to suitable nonprofit purposes.


The $1500 Motorola Razr will hit stores in North America on February 6

This Razr is the second reboot of the brand. In 2011, it launched the Droid Razr but it failed to take off.

(CNN) — The highly anticipated Razr reboot has a new release date in North America: February 6.

Preorders for the $1500 foldable Razr smartphone will begin on January 26. It will be available on Motorola’s website and through Verizon, which is the exclusive provider.

The Razr’s reboot was announced last November and immediately garnered excitement despite its lackluster features, including a small battery and plastic screen, all for twice the cost of an iPhone 11. If that $1,500 price tag gives you sticker shock, Verizon is offering a payment plan of $62.49 a month for 24 months, according to a release. That’s … still more than twice the monthly cost of an iPhone 11.

The power of nostalgia and the unique look has overpowered potential customers’ ability to restrain themselves: Motorola last month delayed the initial launch date, scheduled for January 9, because of higher-than-expected demand and limited supply of the iconic phone.

The new Razr turned heads when it launched in 2004 and became the bestselling phone of all time in the United States before the iPhone stole that title several years later.

The phone’s delay follows a similar pattern in foldable smartphone launches, which have been pushed back by other manufacturers. Smartphone makers need something to shake up the market, so many have set their sights on foldable phones. But taking a folding screen from concept to a working device has proven to be a monumental engineering challenge.

Samsung famously had a high-profile flub with its nearly $2,000 Galaxy Fold. Several reporters given early access to the device discovered defective hinges and that their screens broke after removing the Fold’s protective film. Samsung responded by delaying the April launch of the device, which went on sale in September 2019.

This Razr is the second reboot of the brand. In 2011, it launched the Droid Razr but it failed to take off.

Motorola said that launch dates for other countries will be announced later.


Federal proposal would allow airlines to block emotional support animals from flying

(CNN) — A federal proposal unveiled Wednesday would free airlines from special requirements to accommodate passengers’ emotional support animals, a designation the industry believes some passengers are abusing to bring untrained pets onboard aircraft.

The Transportation Department proposal would “allow airlines to recognize emotional support animals as pets rather than service animals.”

Airlines are not required to transport passengers’ pets, and those that do typically charge fees and limit the number and size of pets that may travel.

The department cited a number of reasons for the change, including the unusual status emotional support animals enjoy in air travel.

“Animals on aircraft may pose a risk to the safety, health, and well-being of passengers and crew and may disturb the safe and efficient operation of the aircraft,” the proposal says. “Airlines have reported increases in the number of behavior-related service animal incidents on aircraft, including urinating, defecating, and biting.”

The proposal would also allow only dogs to fly as service animals, a department official told reporters on a briefing call.

“Passengers have attempted to fly with many different unusual species of animals, such as a peacock, ducks, turkeys, pigs, iguanas, and various other types of animals as emotional support or service animals,” the proposal says, which has caused confusion among passengers and burdened airline employees.

For service animals, the proposal would explicitly prohibit airlines from discriminating by breed. In 2018. Delta attempted to ban pit bulls from traveling as service or emotional support animals, citing biting incidents.
