Drummer Carmine Appice from the group Rated X

Rated X because they are the ex-members of some of the biggest name in Classic Rock History. From the iHeart Radio Studio I'm Unplugged and Totally Uncut with legendary drummer Carmine Appice RATED X was formed at the suggestion of, and under the guidance of Frontiers’ President Serafino Perugino, and consists of singer Joe Lynn Turner, the former lead vocalist for both Rainbow and Deep Purple and a solo artist in his own right; drum legend Carmine Appice, (Vanilla Fudge, Cactus, Ozzy Osbourne, Rod Stewart, Blue Murder, King Kobra and others); Appice’s former Blue Murder band-mate and bassist, Tony Franklin (best known for his work with The Firm, Jimmy Page, Paul Rodgers, David Gilmour, Kate Bush, and Whitesnake); and long-time Turner collaborator and former member of Ace Frehley’s band, guitarist Karl Cochran. Frontiers in-house producer, Alessandro del Vecchio, not only handled studio production but added keyboards on several tracks. Pat Regan (Mr. Big, Deep Purple, Gotthard, Kiss, Doro) mixed the album. “Frontiers wanted me to do an album with prominent players who were well known rockers,” says vocalist Joe Lynn Turner. “Carmine was up at the offices one day and phoned me and we spoke about the possibility...and after much hard work and trauma we are! I say that because we went through a lot of changes...guitar players and craziness doing this CD, but that's a story in itself.”
