LAS VEGAS – The Parnelli Awards Board of Advisors announced that Grammy nominated drummer extraordinaire Kenny Aronoff will be the host for the 18th Annual Parnelli Awards. The ceremony will take place at the Hilton Anaheim on Friday, Jan. 25, 2019 as part of NAMM Live.
Aronoff is one of the most in-demand musicians working today. He has recorded and toured with artists as diverse from Celine Dion to Cinderella. Just a few others include The Rolling Stones, The Smashing Pumpkins, Sting, Lady Gaga, John Fogerty, Garth Brooks, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Chickenfoot and The Buddy Rich Band.
He joined John Mellencamp’s band in 1980, recorded 10 albums with him and toured with him over a 17-year period. He’s considered one of the most influential drummers, listed as “100 Greatest Drummers of All Time” by Rolling Stone Magazine and #1 Pop/Rock Drummer and #1 Studio Drummer by Modern Drummer.
But Aronoff is comfortable being out from the drumkit, too. He’s a sought-after motivational speaker, and in 2016 published his memoir, Sex, Drums, Rock ‘n’ Roll! The Hardest Hitting Man in Show Business.
