Legendary rock drummer Carmine Appice (Ozzy Osbourne, Rod Stewart, Vanilla Fudge, Jeff Beck, Guitar Zeus, King Kobra – to name a few) has enjoyed an amazing 30 year career as a rock star, music educator, and rock pioneer. He is widely considered to be one of the most accomplished showmen in rock and is the recipient of numerous awards including dozens of gold and platinum selling records. Carmine co-wrote such monster selling hits as “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy” and “Young Turks”. He has broken new ground in very aspect of his career as a performer, as a teacher, and as a writer, and he continues to inspire drummers and listeners throughout the world with his originality and his unwavering dedication to the art of drumming.

 

Vinny Appice has anchored the rhythm and power live and in the studio for the music of Dio, Black Sabbath, Heaven and Hell, WWIII, Axis, Rick Derringer, John Lennon, and more. He has recorded and co-written songs on over 25 albums and CDs including many multi-platinum records. Touring the world for over 2 decades resulted in selling millions of records! Vinny’s drumming can also be heard on numerous movie soundtracks including “Wayne’s World 2″, “Heavy Metal”, “Iron Eagle” and “Bedazzled”. Vinny, the author of drum instruction book “Rock Steady” and DVD “Hard Rock Drumming Techniques” has performed incredible powerhouse drum clinics around the globe. Numerous books have been written about Black Sabbath and Dio with the authors always mentioned Vinny’s unique powerful drumming style!

 

Vinny and Carmine break out the heavy artillery in this entertaining no-holds barred battle to the finish. Carmine and Vinny…Vinny and Carmine! Don’t know which one comes first, which one had the mustache first, or which one has the best legs! However, they are both great artists in their own genre. Carmine’s track record includes Vanilla Fudge, Cactus, B.B.A. (Beck, Bogart and Appice), and Rod Stewart, to name a few. Not bad! Vinny has driven John Lennon, Black Sabbath, Dio and Heaven & Hell. Not bad! From the initial downbeat of this sibling confrontation, this spectacle culminates in the final battle of Drum Wars. The Ultimate Battle both playing with great power, imagination and musically spirited. So now, Drum Wars – The Tour where Carmine and Vinny demonstrate their sensational playing abilities. It is comedy in that they leave Laurel and Hardy very secure! It is entertainment in that it is great fun. Sincere, open and honest. Both drummers play great solos and great ensemble work in their own inimitable style. Their years of experience are reflected in their ability to respond musically to each other. I personally am honored to have them both as friends and musical colleagues. May the musical battle continue! – Vic Firth
