WORLD-CLASS BASS PLAYER
KENNY AARONSON IS THE GUEST
ON THE RAY SHASHO SHOW
Our Very Special Guest today is legendary bass player … Kenny Aaronson.
Kenny Aaronson was born, bread and buttered in Brooklyn, New York. He started playing drums at the age of eleven, following in his older brother's footsteps. Kenny switched to electric bass at the age 14 after becoming enamored by the low end of the bass on Motown records that he would hear on the jukeboxes in local pizza joints. To this day, he is still a huge James Jamerson fanatic. As a teenager, he played bass for Brooklyn based hard rock band Dust, which included Marc Bell (a.k.a. Marky Ramone), and released two albums in 1971 and '72 on the Kama Sutra label. In 1973, Aaronson joined the New York band Stories, who's single,"Brother Louie", reached #1 on the Billboard, Cashbox and Record World charts.
Kenny Aaronson went on to become a recognized world-class rock and roll bassist with his extensive touring and recording with a variety of artists including Bob Dylan, Billy Idol, Joan Jett, Billy Squier, Foghat, Sammy Hagar, Neil Schon, Kenny Aaronson, Michael Shrieve, Brian Setzer, Mick Taylor, Dave Edmunds, Robert Gordon, Graham Parker, Hall and Oates, Edgar Winter, Leslie West Band, Rick Derringer and many more.
In 1988 Kenny was named Bassist of the year by Rolling Stone Magazine. Aaronson was also bassist in the house band for the MTV Guitar Greats Show where along with Dave Edmunds, Chuck Leavell and Michael Shrieve, he had the opportunity to back up artists as diverse as Steve Cropper, Brian Setzer, Lita Ford, Tony Iommi and Dave Gilmore. A few of Kenny's most memorable moments in his career were auditioning for the Rolling Stones, recording with George Harrison and opening for Led Zeppelin.
Kenny Aaronson supports singer song writer John Eddie. In the summer of 2011 he toured with the New York Dolls supporting Motley Crue and Poison in the US along with solo Dolls dates in Australia. In the fall, they toured the U.K. supporting Alice Cooper. Kenny has recently supported Corky Laing, Robert Gordon and Philadelphia's "In The Pocket".
Most recently Kenny is a member of the legendaryYardbirds and Radio Exile who recently released their debut CD and official video entitled “Soulfire.”
