Drumsticks and Stones; Peter Grant Speaks to Drummer Kenney Jones


Byline: Peter Grant

HE'S been with three of the biggest bands in the world - The Small Faces, The Faces and The Who. Now his own band are becoming famous.

Kenney Jones, drummer with The Who, will play his first gig on British soil since the release of his new band's album in Liverpool and he is raring to go.
