As drummer for Vanilla Fudge, Carmine Appice set the grooves for the groundbreaking band‘s 1967 psychedelic debut. Post-Fudge, Bogert and Appice formed Cactus (seen as an influence on King‘s X and Van Halen). Post-Cactus, the rhythm section found Grammy-winning Guitar Hero Jeff Beck to form the first supergroup: Beck, Bogert & Appice (BBA). One of the premier showmen in rock, Appice became known worldwide for his astonishing live performances, in addition to becoming a highly sought-after session drummer, recording with countless artists throughout his career. In ‘76, he joined the Rod Stewart Band, touring, recording and writing two of Stewart‘s biggest hits, “Do Ya Think I‘m Sexy” and “Young Turks”. He would go on to form King Kobra, tour with Ozzy Osbourne and Blue Murder with John Sykes (Whitesnake) and Tony Franklin (The Firm).

Carmine states, “I consider Guitar Zeus one of the best projects, if not the BEST project I’ve done both as far as songs, with some of the best production and playing of my career. I love the new tunes.  I hope you enjoy this 25th year celebration of some of the greatest rock guitarist ever put together. KEEP ROCKIN”.  Cars guitarist Elliot Easton continues, “I’m so happy that Carmine has gathered all of his Guitar Zeus recordings together for this great box set. Carmine has always been my ‘big brudda’ homie from Brooklyn, and is of course a legend. It’s always an honor when Carmine calls me to play on a session or a gig, but most importantly it’s always FUN! Enjoy this set of rocking music and killer guitar. I hope you have as much fun listening as we all had making this music.”

Carmine has just released a brand new lyric video for the track “Mystified” featuring Tommy Thayer of KISS.  Tommy had this to say about it, “It’s an absolute honor to play alongside Hall of Fame drummer Carmine Appice on Guitar Zeus.  Carmine’s influence in the world of drumming is historic and unsurpassed.  What a thrill for me to be a part of this project” Carmine continues, “I love this song!!! Loved Tony’s bass. Tommy’s solo. Kelly’s rhythm, vocals, lyrics, really cool. I’m so glad we are getting this song out!!!”
