Sex, drugs and rock and roll are recounted with brutal honesty as former The Who drummer Kenney Jones takes the stage for an intimate interview.

Stepney-born Jones recounts the highs and lows of the Swinging Sixties and 50 years of the Small Faces at audio and music show Festival of Sound.

The 69-year-old is expected to spend the hour-long session with his former record producer, Chris Kemsey, chatting about heady days, losing friends and the artists he admires today.

It’s a real privilege and a personal delight of mine to have Kenney Jones at Festival of Sound this year,” said organiser Vernon Hamblin.

“To say he is a legend is an understatement. “I’m sure his fans and our music-loving visitors to the event will not want to miss his session. We’re in for a real treat.”

The event takes place in hotel Novotel, Hammersmith, between 3.30pm and 4.30pm on Friday, September 28.
