Very few drummers have impacted Rock and Heavy Metal music in the way Carmine Appice has. Carmine is a rare case of a drummer that has transcended genres, and generations, and in the process, has influenced droves of musicians who came after him.
Having been mostly responsible for the initial reunion of legendary Hard Rock band Cactus, it’s only fitting that he would eventually join the band as their bassist, harpist, and occasional harmonica player as well.
Carmine Appice is one of the greatest drummers ever to pick up a pair of sticks. His hard-hitting, powerful style, coupled with his incredible showmanship, has led him down a path that has seen him become a member of multiple legendary Rock bands.
