Kenny Aronoff Talks Drumming…….

This was the kind of show where you can get exhausted just by listening to Kenny. Thanks for this super interview with the Hardest Hitting Man in Show Business. Your questions are very good and lead to some interesting insights by Kenny. He is not only the most disciplined, shrewd, and organized artist in rock n roll, he honors the music and is a super person.
I’m now following your podcast; all the best!
