One of the first drum books I ever bought was "Realistic Rock" by Carmine Appice. So when Carmine was booked for a lesson at Drumeo I was unbelievably excited and nervous. The lesson went great and I know you'll enjoy it!
Carmine Appice became known worldwide for his astonishing live performances as the drummer for Vanilla Fudge, in addition to becoming a highly sought-after session drummer playing with countless artists including Rod Stewart, Ozzy Osborne, Ted Nugent, and Pink Floyd.
As an educator, Carmine was the first to legitimize rock drumming with his landmark book, "The Realistic Rock Drum Method", selling more than 400,000 copies. In appreciation for his universal appeal, he was forever immortalized via his induction in cement to Hollywood's Rock Walk of Fame.
