Default 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 …’
