Carmine Appice feels Vinnie Vincent creates havoc wherever he goes & would never work with him again
Cactus, Vanilla Fudge and King Kobra drummer Carmine Appice was recently interviewed by Andrew Daly for Vinyl Writer Music.
Appice was supposed to be part of the band along with bassist Tony Franklin backing up former KISS guitarist Vinnie Vincent during his “comeback” shows in Nashville, Tennessee, USA on February 8 and 9, 2019. Former Vinnie Vincent Invasion lead vocalist Robert Fleischman was supposed to make a special guest appearance at each show but he decided to pull out and was replaced by Hair Nation singer Jim Crean before Vincent pulled the plug on the two shows.
In terms of if he would ever work with Vincent again, Appice indicated (with slight edits): “Sorry to say, it will never happen. Vinnie is a fantastic talent but not a good person to be in a project with. He creates havoc wherever he goes. I have tapes… finished mixes of great songs, but he made sure that I could never release them by hiring an attorney to send me a letter. Meanwhile, he had done nothing but create trouble. We were going to do one gig with him, myself and Tony Franklin…. it was a nightmare. The promoter got screwed out of tons of money. So, as far as Vinnie Vincent is concerned, I’d say no…”
