Comments from Carmine Appice

What: Signed Carmine Appice Drumstick and autograph

Carmine Appice: Musician, songwriter – absolute drumming legend. In a world where the word legend is overused, the thunderous Carmine is indeed the real deal. I am not going to give you a rock lesson on him as I could not do him enough justice – so go to his website and learn. He did a drumming clinic in Sydney around 1988 and the Rockbrat was lucky enough to secure an autograph and one of his signed sticks – from a sweaty Carmine – straight after the clinic. I can remember (as he drummed with some faceless musicians accompanying him) that his sound was hard and heavy – honed from years of experience, but also combined  tremendous amount of talent.  Top shelf and the the real deal. He’s on the Hollywood Rock walk of fame, Modern Drummer named him Best Rock drummer and also gave him a lifetime achievement award, as did Sabian Cymbals. The list of accolades goes on and on my friends.  Carmine also had his photograph taken with the Rockbrat that day too, but alas the film was not loaded correctly ! Alas, another Rockbrat Regret. However, as the years roll by and I listen to some of Carmine’s amazing work with bands like Cactus and Vanilla Fudge, I really do appreciate owning one of his drumsticks. Direct from the Rockbrat Treasure Chest for you to enjoy…
