Kenny Hyslop (born 14 February 1951) is a Scottish drummer who played with different projects and bands who were varied in different styles, such as glam rock, 1970s teenybop, soft rock, punk, New Wave, New Romantic, blues and modern electronica.
He joined the band Salvation with Midge Ure, which later became Slik and later PVC2. He also went on to play with The Skids, although in 1981 he joined Simple Minds. His time with this band was brief, although he contributed by recording "Promised You A Miracle" and appeared in the videos of "Sweat In Bullet" and "Love Song", from the Sons And Fascination album (which he did not appear on, but helped to promote when he replaced former drummer Brian McGee). Following his departure from Simple Minds, Hyslop formed Set the Tone with bass player Bobby Paterson.
Following the demise of Set the Tone, Hyslop formed the One O'Clock Gang which released an album on Arista Records without significant commercial success. He went on to be credited on a number of singles and albums, including some by Midge Ure. However, after becoming disillusioned with the music industry, Hyslop became an alternative DJ until leaving the UK for Canada with the blues band, Big George and The Business. After returning to the UK, Hyslop started teaching drumming at Carlton Studios in Glasgow as well as producing new music published through Myspace.
