Sex! Drums! Rock 'n' Roll! The Hardest Hitting Man in Show Business

by Kenny Aronoff

Voted Drummer of the Year by Rolling Stone magazine, living legend Kenny Aronoff first became a recognizable personality behind the drum kit playing for 17 years for John Mellencamp on hits including the #1 single “Jack and Diane,” “Hurts So Good,” “Pink Houses (Ain't That America),” and “Small Town,” among many others, and he's been keeping the beat to the sound track of a rock and roll generation ever since!

MTV made Kenny a household name in the 1980s, and throughout the 1990s and 2000s he has exploded into one of the most in-demand session drummers in the business, responsible for such #1 hits as Jon Bon Jovi's “Blaze of Glory,” Meatloaf's “I'd Do Anything for Love,” “That Thing You Do” from the motion-picture sound track, “Heaven Is a Place on Earth” by Belinda Carlisle, Michelle Branch hits including “Everywhere,” “Are You Happy Now?,” and “Breathe,” and Melissa Etheridge's “I Wanna Come Over,” among many more.

Aronoff's been the beat-keeper for mythic Creedence Clearwater Revival front man John Fogerty for the past 20 years, the house drummer for the Kennedy Center Honors for Willie Nelson, Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Lady Gaga, and others, at the White House, and fulfilled his lifelong dream of playing with the Beatles onstage on the CBS TV special The Night That Changed America backing up Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

Now, in Sex, Drums, Rock 'n' Roll!, Kenny Aronoff gives music fans everywhere a long-awaited glimpse into his life in music.
