Sex; Drums; Rock 'n' Roll! by : Kenny Aronoff
Foreword by Neil Peart.
Talent; energy; dedication; discipline; passion; innovation; education; drive; mind; body; spirit; vision; honor; truth; and drums make the man: Kenny Aronoff. Voted by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the greatest drummers of all time; Aronoff is arguably the most sought-after recording and touring beat master ever. 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.
But none of this would have been possible without his fierce work ethic and unique approach to drumming – an integration of all parts of his being; along with meticulous attention to note-for-note detail; feel; and what the song needs. Both a leader and a team player in the mission to realize a greater good – an unforgettable recording; a riveting show – Aronoff brings it every time. Through any setbacks – heartaches; failures; injuries; or plain fatigue from the rigors of the biz – Aronoff has stayed the arduous and wild rock 'n' roll course. His tale of what is possible with unrelenting dedication to one's bliss is an inspiration to all.
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: Melissa Etheridge; John Fogerty; Bon Jovi; Stevie Nicks; Smashing Pumpkins; the BoDeans; Paul Westerberg; Celine Dion; Iggy Pop; Elton John; Bob Dy
