5 Great Kenny Aronoff Performances!

Happy Birthday, Kenny Aronoff!

One of the busiest drummers in our industry – Kenny’s always got something going on! Many musicians would roll their eyes as such a fact. Surely he must let so many down being so busy? Thing is, Kenny will quite literally walk to the ends of the earth to maintain his commitments. If Kenny says he’ll be there, he’ll be there.

This mindset and attitude have landed him some extremely high-profile gigs/sessions over the years, with artists ranging from The Smashing Pumpkins, Lynard Skynard and Santana, to Rod Stewart, Ricky Martin and Celine Dion

We check out 5 incredible Kenny Aronoff performances!

Smashing Pumpkins – Perfect live on David Letterman

Kenny absolutely SMASHING IT (excuse the pun) on David Letterman Live with the song Perfect. I don’t know anyone who can play the drums THAT hard without losing their sunglasses.

If you’ve ever wondered how Kenny Aronoff achieves his snare sound. You basically need two things:

  1. An Evans Heavyweight Batter Head on your snare
  2. BE Kenny Aronoff

Versatile is one word that comes to mind when thinking of Kenny Aronoff, and this performance perhaps proves just that.

Back before he played Evans drum heads, Kenny was the only drummer in the world to not only USE the Remo Tattoo Skyn heads…but look like a BADASS while using them!

Let’s not get it twisted, Kenny might be known for laying down the grooves that pay the bills…but man can he tear it up when he needs to!

We’ve been lucky enough to have Kenny Aronoff in clinic a number of years back, and he delivered one of the most dynamic and incredible performances we’ve ever seen!

What is your favourite album that Kennys played on?
