Legendary drummer Carmine Appice joins us this week to talk all-things Blue Murder in a special Albums Unleashed episode. This chat contains much more than talk on the first album. Carmine gives us the story of how he joined the band, the making of the album, stories of the video shoots, appearing on Weird Al’s tv show, touring the album and much, much more! There are some great behind the scenes stories in this episode. From debauchery to drama to recording techniques, you’ll get the full Blue Murder story.
The Blue Murder debut album has achieved a massive cult following over the years, with its legend growing over time. In this discussion, Carmine shares his thoughts on the legacy of the band, what led to the band’s fortunes taking a bad turn, and why it didn’t last longer. Carmine also shares an amazing story of how the members of Blue Murder almost became part of Thin Lizzy as well as how a reunion got within months of happening before things went south in 2012.
There are many other great stories from Carmine’s career in this episode including his connection to John Bonham and how their professional lives intertwined in the early days.
