Lenny Castro (born September 19, 1956) is an American freelancing percussionist in the studio recording industry in the Los Angeles area. Because he is a freelancer, Castro is called on by many artists and bands to record. He claims to enjoy this freedom, saying that the members of Toto did him a favor by not asking him to join permanently; “I didn’t get handcuffed or chained down”. The artists and bands that Castro has worked with include Adele, Simply Red, the Rolling Stones, Sir Elton John, Al Jarreau, George Benson, Regina Belle, Eric Clapton, Boz Scaggs, Toto, Alien Ant Farm, Steely Dan, Christopher Cross, The Mars Volta, Dolly Parton, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, David Sanborn, Avenged Sevenfold, Little Feat, Tom Petty, Susanna Hoffs, Boney James, The (International) Noise Conspiracy, Peter White, Joe Sample, Kenny Loggins, Young Knives, Rickie Lee Jones, Caifanes, Dan Fogelberg, The Crusaders, The Bee Gees, Barbra Streisand, Karizma, Quincy Jones, John Mayer, Randy Newman, Dave Koz, Olivia Newton-John, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Eric Burdon, Oasis, Wayne Shorter, Pat Benatar, Dwight Yoakam, Maroon 5, Lisa Marie Presley, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Mick Hucknall, Booker T.
