SEX, DRUMS, ROCK 'N' ROLL!
The Hardest Hitting Man in Show Business
In his autobiography, Sex, Drums, Rock ’n’ Roll! Kenny Aronoff talks about his childhood growing up in both the Berkshires and Mid-West. At an early age, music inspired him. He studied classical, jazz and every style in between—creating a foundation that evolved him into the versatile drummer he is today, with the talent to play anything. While trying to make it in the music industry in his early 20’s, fate stepped in with the audition that would change his life—it was for John Mellencamp. His work with Mellencamp catapulted Aronoff to the top of the charts with hits like “Hurts so Good,” “Little Pink Houses,” and “Jack and Diane” paving the way for session and recording work for many 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 who 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 who’s 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
