Kenny Aronoff, drummer to the stars, was in the house band as the Grammys' MusiCares saluted Bob Dylan this month. He has drummed for John Mellencamp, John Fogerty, Smashing Pumpkins, the BoDeans and other artists. Aronoff admires another kind of artist, pop surrealist painter Mark Ryden.
"The quality and detail in his work is amzing. The contrast he shows with the pretty doll-like girls with animals, bugs, meat, blood and things that are the opposite of innocence and cuteness is interesting. He ties them together and makes it real somehow."
