Before Kenny Aaronson became famous for his gigs
with A-listers like Hall & Oates, Bob Dylan, the New
York Dolls, and Rick Derringer, he was a Brooklyn
teenager in Dust, whose two recently reissued early-’70s albums capture his
distorted, fierce approach. You can clearly hear him channeling elements of
John Entwistle, Jack Bruce, Tim Bogert, and Paul Samwell-Smith, and his
pick-driven solo on “Suicide” and the scorcher “Loose Goose” should establish
Aaronson’s rightful place alongside such heavyweights.
