Line-up: Vinny Appice (Drums), Carmine Appice (Drums) + full band from Europe TBA
Vinny and Carmine break out the heavy artillery in this entertaining no-holds barred battle to the finish, Carmine and Vinny……..Vinny and Carmine !
Don´t know which one comes first, which one had the moustache first, or which one has the best legs ! However, they are both great artists in their own genre, Carmine´s track record includes Ozzy Osbourne, Jeff Beck, Rod Stewart, Cactus, to name a few, not bad ! Vinny has driven John Lennon, Black Sabbath, DIO, Heaven & Hell – not bad !
From the initial downbeat of this sibling confrontation, this spectacle culminates in the final battle of Drum Wars. The ultimate battle both playing with great power, imagination and musically spirited.
So now, Drum Wars, the tour which Carmine & Vinny demonstrate their sensational playing abilities. It is comedy that leave Laurel & Hardy very secure !
It is entertainmentin that it is great fun. Sincere, open and honest.
Both drummers play great solos and great ensemble work in their own inimitable style. Their years of experience are reflected in their ability to respond musically to each other. I personally am honored to have them both as friends amd musical colleagues.
May the music battle continue ! – Vic Firth.
