KENNY ARONOFF To Replace Chad Smith on Chickenfoot Tour

Kenny Aronoff

Drummer Chad Smith, of Chickenfoot, has hand picked Kenny Aronoff to replace him for Chickenfoot’s tour to support the release of their new album Chickenfoot III which will be released on September 26th.  Looks as though money’s tight around the Smith household so he’s going to go to his “day job” and make some cash.  Aronoff has worked with the likes of Smashing Pumpkins, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Cinderella, Stryper, Tony Iommi and The Rolling Stones.  Sounds like this dude, Chad, is perfectly qualified to handle the job.  Is it just me or does Chad Smith look an awful lot like Will Farrell

Frontman Sammy Hagar is digging the pick and he had this to say:

“Chad picked him because he said Kenny’s just like him. He beats his drum set to death. He doesn’t play them. He beats them to death. At the end of every show you have to buy a new drum set for these guys. We need that power. We tried [Kenny]. He’s fucking great. He’s really solid, and he’s got fire.”

Smith welcomed Aronoff into the band via a video released on You Tube saying:

“I got bills to pay! I gotta go and do my day job, but only for a little bit…I’ll be back In the meantime, a great buddy of mine, Kenny Aronoff, is gonna come play the drums. He’s gonna tear it up, he’s awesome, and he’s gonna have a great time. So make sure you go and see the ‘foot!”
