Drum legend Carmine Appice has been sharing his gifts of ferocious playing and tasty songwriting with the world for decades. From his days with Vanilla Fudge in the sixties, when they had, among others, Led Zeppelin as openers, to his time with BBA -- Beck, Bogert and Appice -- through to tours and albums with Rod Stewart, Ted Nugent, Cactus, Ozzy Osbourne, Michael Schenker and many others. Recently he released the VBA album -- Vargas, Bogert and Appice, and HPR's Dave Lawrence caught up with his old friend for an update.
