After a few seconds of talking with Kenny Aronoff, you understand why he is so celebrated as one of the great living drummers in popular music over the last four decades. His passion, enthusiasm, compassion and life force are infectious. He has played on world tours and on thousands of recordings for an impressive list of artists, including The Rolling Stones, John Mellencamp, B.B. King, Bob Dylan, Alanis Morrissette, Brian Wilson, Vince Gill, Johnny Cash, Smashing Pumpkins, The BoDeans, Bon Jovi, Avril Lavigne, plus thousands more. More than 300 millions records have been sold featuring Kenny’s work.
When he is not behind his drums, Kenny can often be found doing his other favorite gig— motivational speaker— turning his life experience into words of wisdom to help others.To forge a stellar career in the demanding and warp-speed changing world of popular music requires more than great talent. There are good reasons why so many that have achieved that level of success and stardom often become the architects of their own self-destruction.
Kenny is living testimony to the unlimited possibilities we can all create when we combine talent, hard work and passion with a 24/7 mindfulness approach to living.
