Carmine Appice

Inducted October 26, 2017

Brooklyn’s favorite son, Carmine Appice took the drummer out of the shadows and pushed him headfirst into the spotlight. Known for his legendary live performances, Appice was at the rhythmic foundation for a score of influential classic rock bands including Vanilla Fudge, Beck, Bogert & Appice, and Cactus. He revolutionized the way a rock drummer played and brought his knowledge to fans all over the world beginning with his now iconic how-to book Realistic Rock. He would later go onto play with Rod Stewart, Ozzy, Ted Nugent and form his own King Cobra and Blue Murder bands.
