SXSW Interview: Carmine Appice
Thursday, March 17
12:30PM - 1:30PM
Austin Convention Center
531 E 4th St
Carmine Appice graduated from the streets of Brooklyn to become a globally renowned drummer who pioneered new techniques in hard rock and heavy metal drumming in bands such as Vanilla Fudge, Cactus and King Kobra. He recorded not only with his own groups and supergroups but also the likes of Rod Stewart, Pink Floyd, Ozzy Osbourne and Ted Nugent, and along the way he helped John Bonham secure his first heavyweight drum kit, happened into a house-sharing situation with Prince, earned unexpected megastardom in Japan and got married five times. Appice’s new memoir, Stick It!: My Life of Sex, Drums, and Rock ’N’ Roll (Chicago Review Press; May 1, 2016), written with Ian Gittins, with a foreword by Rod Stewart, is both intimately revelatory and sweeping in its account of rock’s notable eras from the 1960s to today.
