Drum Heroes Carmine & Vinny Appice Go Head-To-Head On The New Release Drum Wars Live! Los Angeles, CA – Drumming demi-gods Carmine & Vinny Appice have both had extraordinary careers behind the drum kit, beginning with Carmine’s tenure in such legendary classic rock bands as Vanilla Fudge and Cactus as well as supporting stints with Rod Stewart and Ozzy Osbourne. Meanwhile, younger brother Vinny made his name as a metal drummer for monster acts such as Dio, Black Sabbath and Heaven & Hell. Recently, these two virtuosos have been wowing audiences with their own rock show called “Drum Wars,” featuring not only the hits of their associated bands but also a thrilling series of solos that pit them against each other like the Gene Krupa/Buddy Rich drum battles of yore. Fortunately for us mere mortals, this unique concert experience was recorded in June of this year at the Iridium in New York and is now available on CD courtesy of Deadline Music and Rocker Records.
Along with Carmine and Vinny, the Drum Wars Live CD features Jim Crean, Ethan Brosh and James Caputo!  For those unsure of their ability to withstand the aural assault that the Appice brothers bring, a free downloadable track from the album has been made available on the Rocker Records website.  “When me and Vinny play together we push each other to our limits. Either while drum battling or playing great songs from our history on this CD, while backed up with a great band behind us!” – Carmine Appice

“A CD of great music and drums that punch with power and energy.” – Vinny Appice

    First Dio wasn’t fired from Black Sabbath as far as I know; he chose to leave because of iesuss going on between him and Iommi/Butler.Second I don’t really think that it’s a fair comparison between Iommi and Campbell They play the instrument so differently, that they really aren’t much alike, even if they both play metal. In my opinion, Grijalva, Iommi, and Goldy (and Robertson) all played better stuff than Campbell (I think that Dio only got better after Campbell, call me weird or whatever), but they all have their own signature styles and are all excellent in their own rights.Third Why dis Goldy? He’s good!Fourth From what I can see, just by watching old interviews and stuff, Campbell seems quite a hypocrite But obviously I don’t know exactly what happened, so I can’t say for sure.RIP RJD!
