Carmine Appice first made his name in the late Sixties with the psychedelic band Vanilla Fudge. After five albums he and bassist Tim Bogert left to form Cactus. The pair then teamed up with Jeff Beck for a power trio called Beck, Bogert and Appice. The drummer joined Rod Stewart’s band in 1977 and co-wrote the hits songs “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?” and “Young Turks”. In 1978 he played drums on Paul Stanley’s first solo album. He has been a member of KGB and has recorded with Stanley Clarke, Ted Nugent, and Pink Floyd. Carmine Appice first founded Guitar Zeus in 1995 with the intent to bring together some of the greatest guitarists in the world. Through the 1990s Guitar Zeus released three CDs to worldwide critical acclaim. The new album 'Conquering Heroes' continues in that tradition with guest appearances by a Who’s Who of rock guitarists including Neal Schon, Yngwie Malmsteem, Steve Morse, Ty Tabor, Ted Nugent, Slash, Brian May and many more. Carmine joins us tonight live to talk about 'Conquering Heroes', Guitar Zeus, and his long career, as well as take some listener calls!
