MC5’s Rock Star Wayne (Korombos) Kramer Glad He’s Alive

February 26, 2022

Almost 60 years after the Detroit rock group MC5 appeared on the scene, guitarist Wayne Kramer – his family name from Corfu is Korombos – is happy it’s been nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

But he’s happier to be alive, after struggling with drugs and spending two years in a Federal prison in the 1970’s after being caught selling cocaine to undercover agents.

He told Hit Channel: “I’m very very glad that I’m still around. I’ve lived and have been involved in so many things, so I’m blessing all the time that I’m still alive .. I couldn’t believe that I’m not dead.”

MC5 and DKT played in Greece in 2005 although he’d been there twice before performing solo and said, “I still remember the first time I visited Acropolis and then the theater of Dionysus and I feel really struck then. In that particular place, the ancient theatre of Dionysus, I realized that I’m doing the same thing: that I’m performing and amuse people, as all the great Ancient Greek writers did … as a Greek myself, I think that I’m keeping this tradition.”
