SEX, DRUMS, ROCK'N'ROLL
The Hardest Hitting Man in Show Business
Sex, Drums, Rock ‘n’ Roll! details Aronoff’s youth in the Berkshires and the Midwest, from his early inspirations to his serious classical and jazz study, which gave him the foundation to be able to play – anything. The failure of a first rock band in his early twenties had a silver lining: it freed him up for an audition that would change his life – John Mellencamp. His work with Mellencamp catapulted Aronoff to the top of the charts with such hits as ”Hurt So Good”, ”Little Pink Houses”, and ”Jack and Diane” and paved the way for session and recording work with droves of remarkable artists.
“Our success was a matter of a million things, but of course Kenny’s dedication to work – which I don’t think anyone could ever slight in any fashion – was a big factor. There’s no question that Kenny can tough it out , and everybody that knows Kenny would have to admire him for that.”John Mellencamp
“Kenny is such a force, he’s such a physical force – that’s the thing you have to start with – he is a ball of fucking energy whose bringing it. He reminds me of some of our great Pass Rushers like Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis!”Jim Irsay, Owner of the Indianapolis Colts
“I think he is, without a doubt, one of the greats. As far as I’m concerned, he’s the greatest in the world, and I’m lucky enough to have him in my band. I know Kenny has his own idols that he looks up to, and so do I, and he’s right there as far as his ability and his personality – as far as how he plays and presents the music that he’s doing – he’s at the very top of the mountain.”John Fogerty
“Absolutely one of the best doing it. I think that highly of him, without a second thought. He is and will remain one of my favorites.”Jon Bon Jovi
