Check out Kenny's work on Stryper's new album due out this July, Murder By Pride. You can download the song Murder By Pride and Peace of Mind(Boston cover w/Tom Sholtz on guitar) on i-Tunes or go to Stryper's myspace page and listen to it on their music player. Kenny shows off his amazing versatility in laying down some killer tracks. It's no wonder Kenny is as sought-after as he is. I'm a die-hard Stryper/Robert Sweet fan, but Kenny kicked some serious rear-end on these tunes. Incredible work Kenny! (pic below is Kenny with Michael Sweet of Stryper)

Re: Kenny Aronoff
Kenny is just too good. He's sickening. He makes it all look too easy.

Very nice guy though. I've had the pleasure of meeting him at least three times.

Re: Kenny Aronoff
Yeah, Kenny is awesome!
Just curious, why didn't Michael's brother Robert Sweet
play on those tunes?

Also - Which drummer will be playing out on tour?
I will be seeing them in Sept.

Re: Kenny Aronoff
Kenny must be one of the most widely respected rock drummers...or indeed, any drummers in the world. He has played with a massive amount of artists, and has proven his ability live and in the studio.

But I am going to be controversial and mention one thing I DON'T like about him.

Kenny writes a monthly 'drum diary' page for England's Rhythm magazine. And the way he writes is just odd (at least in the ones I have read). He doesn't really talk about days 'at the office' or interesting experiences all that much, like the other guys do. He just lists all the gigs and sessions he's done since the last column, lists all the gigs and sessions coming up, and then casually complains about having no time off. And something about the whole approach to me is a little...strange. It seems very conceited to me. I suppose he is in a position to be that way, and I also suppose it could be a bit of jealousy on my part.. But it strikes me as a little odd. If you're so busy, Mr Aronoff, and so wanting a break, start taking some. The chances of you running out of work are slim indeed. Why say yes to everybody and then moan about too much work?

Anyway, there's no denying his ability behind the kit. For that I give him full marks.

Re: Kenny Aronoff
Some cool little interviews with Kenny, discussing Chickenfoot and his past work with Mellencamp, Forgerty and such



And while he's told the storyof Jack and Dianne before it's still intense:

This was a ballad; you couldn’t possibly do a drum solo. I literally composed that thing, piece by piece, on the spot. I was fighting for my job, because I saw two people get fired on that record. And now, I had to come up with something that was musical. I remember at one point, walking back to my drums, going: ‘Dude, you’ve got 25 beats to save your job. … now you’ve got 15 … now you’ve got 10 …’

Re: Kenny Aronoff
I saw kenny in a clinic in the late 80's. All I knew off him was the Cougar/Mellencamp stuff and to be honest, I wasn't expecting much. I don't think anyone else was either because he came out, didn't say a word and proceeded to play a jazz solo that literally dropped almost every jaw there, mine included. He did explain the Jack & Diane "solo", hoe he was fired from the earlier record and managed to keep his job and his whole concept of just "Laying it down".

As already mentioned, there is a reason he has played on so many records....
