Aerosmith star defends Guitar Hero
The franchise has recently attracted criticism from top electric guitar players such as Jimmy Page and Jack White.
However, Kramer said the game is simply a new means of exposing the rock genre to younger people.
"If that's what you got to do to get kids to understand what a band like Aerosmith's all about, then that's just one more way to find out about it," he commented.
Despite this assertion, Kramer conceded that Guitar Hero is not the "ideal" way for younger people to find out about classic rock.
He added that bands may warm to the idea of allowing their songs to be used on the game when they are offered "boatloads" of money.
Led Zeppelin have so far been extremely reluctant to license their music in this way, although a number of their tracks have been heard in movies such as School of Rock, Almost Famous and Small Soldiers.
