CARMINE APPICE Talks About His Association With DDRUM

Harmony Central recently conducted an interview with legendary drummer Carmine Appice (SLAMM, VANILLA FUDGE, ROD STEWART, OZZY OSBOURNE, TED NUGENT) about his association with ddrum. Watch the chat below.

Fuel Records released Carmine Appice's latest GUITAR ZEUS album, "Conquering Heroes", on August 25, 2009. The double-disc set, which features 24 of the best GUITAR ZEUS songs, showcases the prolific talents of many world-renowned rock guitarists, including Brian May, Ted Nugent, Slash, Zakk Wylde, Richie Sambora, and many more.

Author, clinician, drummer and philanthropist, Carmine Appice first came to prominence as the percussionist with the late 1960s psychedelic band VANILLA FUDGE. He contributed distinctive background harmonies with bassist Tim Bogert, adding to the group's high decibel sonic assault. After five albums, Appice and Bogert left VANILLA FUDGE to form the blues rock quartet CACTUS with vocalist Rusty Day and guitarist Jim McCarty. Eventually, Appice left CACTUS with Bogert to join Jeff Beck in the power trio BECK, BOGERT & APPICE, and then later joined Rod Stewart's backing band in 1977, co-writing hit songs such as "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy?" and "Young Turks". In 1978, Appice played drums on Paul Stanley's first solo album. He was a member of KGB featuring Ray Kennedy, Rick Grech, Mike Bloomfield and Barry Goldberg, and has recorded with Stanley Clarke, Ted Nugent, and PINK FLOYD. He was the drummer for the bands KING KOBRA and BLUE MURDER, and toured with Ozzy Osbourne.
