Kenny Aronoff is one of the world’s most influential and in-demand drummers in rock and roll history. And now, he is quickly becoming one of the most in-demand speakers in the country as an influential expert in Leadership, Teamwork, collaboration, communication, creativity, staying relevant, following your bliss, and having passion. Rolling Stone Magazine named Kenny one of the “100 Greatest Drummers of All Time”, which is just one of many career accolades. The list of artists he’s worked with on tour and/or in the studio is a definitive who’s who of the music industry’s top talent... it includes Elton John, Bob Dylan, John Mellencamp (Kenny played on ALL of Mellencamp’s hits, albums, and tours!), The Smashing Pumpkins, Celine Dion, Avril Levine, John Fogerty, Tom Petty, Melissa Ethridge, Willie Nelson, and MANY more!)
Kenny has played on records that have sold in total over 300 Million copies and 1300 of those records have ended up as Gold, Platinum, or Diamond RIAA Certified Records. 60 of those recordings are Grammy Award winners or nominated, and over a dozen of the songs were #1 Hit Singles.
Kenny’s enormous resume and success as of the most in-demand musicians in history is a direct testament to his mastery as a team player, a leader, and a master communicator who also has an incredibly strong work ethic. These qualities have earned him a lasting career for several decades with more recording studio and live performance appearances than perhaps any other working drummer (or musician) in history. Kenny is a rock star in every sense of the word! …And he is busier than ever today in the studio and on tours. And of course, his keynote speech includes rock concert moments with him playing his drums!
