Just a couple of days before the Swedish Midsommar, we talked with the drummer who recorded Brian Setzer’s “The Knife Feels Like Justice”, the one and only Kenny Aronoff. This man has been sitting on the drum throne behind John Fogerty for the last two decades. He first became famous by playing with John Mellencamp but after that, he has toured and recorded extensively with literally a countless number of artists in many different styles. The albums in which Kenny has participated up to date amount the unbelievable figure of 300 million copies sold, over 40 Grammy nominatios and I am pretty sure that there is no home without an album in which Kenny has not participated. His ethics, hard work and dedication had made Kenny Aronoff one of the most -if not the most- solicited and recorded drummers in history. We talked about his background, Brian Setzer, drums and a few more things in this, I hope very nice, interview.
Hello Kenny. First of all, I would like to thank you for taking your time for this interview. It is a real pleasure.
Oh, no problem. You are welcome.
