Appice Brothers Drum Wars Clinic

There’s an upcoming drum clinic featuring former Ozzy band drummer Carmine Appice, and former Black Sabbath drummer Vinny Appice.  Thought some might be interested in it, so I’m passing along the details from a press release that made its way to me the other day.  Check it out:

    Both are great drummers , but my vote is for Vinnie .

    Both are awesome drummers. I first heard of Carmine through an Vanilla Fudge album my mom had called Rock and Roll. He’s a great hard rocking drummer. Of course I know Vinny from Sabbath and Dio and other projects. He’s a great drummer who doesn’t get the credit he deserves. When it comes to following Bill Ward that’s a hard act and many fans will never be satisfied with anyone but Bill. But I think Vinny did a good job.
