About the Book

Sex, Drums, Rock ’n’ Roll!, with a foreword by Rush drummer Neil Peart, and researched and developed with Jake Brown, takes readers on Aronoff’s amazing journey from the small New England town where he watched the Beatles perform on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964 to performing alongside Paul and Ringo on a television special 50 years later. Along the way it chronicles an uncommon career in which the excesses of the rock ’n’ roll life are always tempered by his core personal and professional values.

About the Author

KENNY ARONOFF is one of the most famous and hardest working rock ‘n’ roll drummers performing today. After four decades behind the kit playing with John Fogerty, John Mellencamp, Joe Cocker, Bob Dylan, Jon Bon Jovi, and many others, as house drummer for the Kennedy Center Honors, and alongside Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr on the Beatles CBS special The Night That Changed America, Aronoff is listed among Rolling Stone magazine’s “100 Greatest Drummers of All Time” and remains one of the most in-demand live and session drummers in the music business working today. 

About How I Got Here

How I Got Here is a podcast hosted by two recently graduated college roommates, Tim Barnicle and Harry Hill, wondering how to make it in the world. Sitting down with several legends of their fields, such as Tom Brokaw and Larry King, Tim and Harry ask a simple question: how did you get to where you are in your career? Tracing the route from childhood to the present day, the interviews reveal unbelievable stories and incredible insights into paths that rarely follow expectations.
