We Hate the Evil Empire!

October 16, 2009

Not talking about Russia, North Korea or even the U.S. under George W. Big music labels – if you hate them, really hate them, you have to visit Indie Update’s label bashing pages. Here’s a quick quote:

You have probably all heard it before. In order to make it as a musician, you have to be in New York or LA, you have to sign a record deal, and you have to submit to a specific style of music with your clothes half off.

As an Indie Artist, you probably already know that this is not even close to true! In fact, research says exactly the opposite.

Good for a laugh and some enlightenment.


Drummer Carmine Appice to Appear on Nights with Alice Cooper October 20th — woo!

Los Angeles, CA – Legendary drummer and philanthropist Carmine Appice was recently interviewed by Alice Cooper for the Nights with Alice Cooper radio show to support the recent Carmine Appice Guitar Zeus CD release Conquering Heroes. The interview is scheduled to run on Alice’s show on Tuesday, October 20th as part of the annual Halloween celebration broadcasts.

“It was great talking with Alice for the interview for Guitar Zeus”, affirms Appice. “We go back to the 60’s when Alice opened up for Vanilla Fudge. Alice told me he loves projects like my Guitar Zeus because it is different than just a band and he loves to play them. He said he is gonna rock with Guitar Zeus on his show. He also asked me to get involved with his charity foundation to help inner city kids. I said I would love to.”

Fuel Records released the Guitar Zeus project by legendary drummer Carmine Appice, featuring a compilation of 24 of the best Guitar Zeus songs. Conquering Heroes hit the streets on August 25th. The double-disc set showcases the prolific talents of many world renowned rock guitarists including Brian May, Ted Nugent, Slash, Zakk Wylde, Richie Sambora, and many more.
