Kenny Aronoff

Talk: Sex, Drums, Rock 'n' Roll

Voted by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the greatest drummer of all time, Kenny Aronoff is arguably the most sought-after recording and touring beat-master ever. His resume speaks for itself: he has recorded on over 300 million albums sold and on 1300 Gold, Platinum, and Diamond records, including 60 Grammy-nominated songs and albums. Ignited by the Beatles’ appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, Aronoff’s passion for drumming fervently grew and carried him from the kit in his childhood living room in the Berkshires to Bernstein at Tanglewood to Mellencamp, Etheridge, Fogerty, Smashing Pumpkins, the Rolling Stones, the Beatles – his heroes – and beyond. Kenny Aronoff's story is one of unrelenting dedication.
