Guitar World Premieres THIS TIME AROUND, the new Carmine Appice “Guitar Zeus” music video, featuring dUg Pinnick, and Yngwie Malmsteen

Carmine, dUg, and Yngwie belong to an elite group of rock stars that the public recognizes on a first name basis, even though all 3 use their full names!  And Guitar World is premiering Carmine & bandmate Kelly Keeling’s new song THIS TIME AROUND, which features performances by Yngwie Malmsteen and dUg Pinnick at this link: https://www.guitarworld.com/news/hear-this-time-around-a-new-track-from-carmine-appices-guitar-zeus.
THIS TIME AROUND is a triumphant song about someone having no choice but to confront a situation instead of letting it go. In going against the odds, the lyrics show why someone fights for what means the most to that person. The track came out great with the Rhythm section of Carmine rocking the drums, Kelly on rhythm guitar, and Tony Franklin playing fretless bass.  

THIS TIME AROUND appears on Carmine’s “Guitar Zeus” album, which is “A guitar enthusiast’s dream come true!”  It’s the only and most comprehensive guitar legend compilation album ever recorded, and includes: Brian May, Slash, Neil Schon, Bruce Kulick, Paul Gilbert, Dweezil Zappa, Leslie West, Steve Morse, Ty Tabor (Kings X), Richie Sambora… There are five brand new songs with Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, Pat Travers, John Norum, and top Japanese guitarists RaiZi and Char. 

Yes! “Guitar Zeus” is now available on vinyl!

Other projects in Carmine’s world: recording new albums— DRUM WARS with brother Vinny Appice, and Cactus, who are planning shows everywhere. Carmine praises Clutch’s cover of Cactus’ “Evil (Is Going On).” 
One thing he is not doing, is playing with Vinnie Vincent this June. Nor did he play with him in February. Carmine states: “To set the record straight, Vinnie canceled the shows.”
Album available now on CD, vinyl, download and across all streaming platforms here: http://smarturl.it/GuitarZeus.


Phoebe Legere's Perfect Song for Mother's Day

"Mama" is a thoughtful song about the wisdom Mama taught this reflective songwriter.

Phoebe is on the road.  Tonight she plays Abilene in Rochester.  Here is a link to her interview w/ WHAM-Rochester TV’s Norma Holland.  They talk how her Acadian and Native American ancestors created Cajun (or Acadian music) in America, plus how families got together to make music in the kitchen… which she still does with her friends.
