Drummer Carmine Appice is known as ‘one of the most accomplished showmen in rock’ according to numerous sources. He came into the public eye in the lte sixties when he joined the band Vanilla Fudge. After moving around various bands he then went on to drum for Rod Stewart in 1977, helping to co-write ‘Do You Think I’m Sexy’ and ‘Young Turks’. He has worked with artists such as Pink Floyd and Ozzy Osbourne and has most recently reformed Vanilla Fudge with his long standing friend Tim Bogert. On May 23rd, 1981, the then Mayor of LA named that day ‘Carmine Appice day’.
In 2005, Carmine became one of Little Kids Rock's honorary board members, going on to deliver instruments to the children and perform at their charity events.
He has also performed at charity concerts in aid of Childhood Cancer.
