Post Carmine did EVERYTHING FIRST!!!
Ok kiddies, this is the OFFICIAL Carmine Appice is an ASS-WAD thread.... :roll:



antiMusic: VANILLA FUDGE was the prototype for heavy bands, with your drumming setting the course for a generation to come. What was your mindset when starting this band in terms of how you approach the rhythm to these songs?

Carmine: Well, in those days, it was different from today. There were no p.a. systems, and my style evolved from necessity because I had to flip the sticks backwards. I had to bang on the drums hard which eventually led me to get bigger drums. It's like anything: bigger amp, bigger louder sound. Bigger drums, louder sound. So I ended up getting oversized drums, which ended up becoming a fad. And then I ended up getting John Bonham the drum set that he wanted which was the same as my drum set. It became the LED ZEPPELIN drum set. So indirectly I was involved in creating that LED ZEPPELIN drum set which indirectly helped get the LED ZEPPELIN drum sound. Then I look at even SPINAL TAP, they have the drummer on a riser with two Chinese cymbals and a gong. Those are the two things that I brought. One of the things that I brought was the gong. The other thing was the two Chinas on the boom stand. And the other thing was just the big drum set, the big oversized drum set which became sort of the epitome of what the rock drummer was and with all the twirls and everything, it's probably a combination of me and Keith Moon on that one. So I did it out of necessity. And then looking back, and people going "wow, you created a whole new genre of rock playing that's still going on today." And I go, "Yeah, I guess you're right, but I didn't sit down and go, hmmm, I need to create a new genre of rock playing. Let me see how I can do that." You know? And that's usually how things happen. When LED ZEPPELIN first opened for VANILLA FUDGE, John Bonham and Robert Plant were brand new kids. They were green. Nobody knew how big this group was going to be. And that's the way things happen. THE BEATLES when they got together, they never thought they were going to change the world. They just wanted to play music and have fun, you know. But they ended up changing the world.”
