30 Years Ago: Golden Earring Releases ‘N.E.W.S.’

When veteran Dutch rockers Golden Earring unveiled their seventeenth studio album, ’N.E.W.S,’ in March 1984, they were still feeling the love shown for their latest Top 10 single, ‘Twilight Zone,’ released just two years prior.

Drummer Kenny Aronoff On Playing With Paul McCartney And Ringo Starr: ‘It Was Incredible!’

As we head towards the midpoint of only the second month of 2014, it’s already been a busy year for Kenny Aronoff. The legendary drummer is probably best known for his career-defining work behind the kit for John Mellencamp in the ‘80s and ‘90s, which was followed by a similarly lengthy stint as the drummer for another famous John -- former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman John Fogerty-- a highly successful relationship that remains intact to this day.
