VINNY APPICE Talks LAST IN LINE, Performing With Orchestra (Video)

VINNY APPICE Talks LAST IN LINE, Performing With Orchestra (Video)

California Rock News conducted an interview with legendary drummer Vinny Appice (BLACK SABBATH, DIO, HEAVEN & HELL) on Friday, September 23 at GoDpsMusic in Newbury Park, California. You can now watch the chat below. A couple of excerpts follow (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET).

On LAST IN LINE, the band featuring Appice alongside DEF LEPPARD guitarist and fellow founding DIO member Vivian Campbell, plus singer Andrew Freeman, who has previously fronted HURRICANE and LYNCH MOB:

Vinny: “We love playing together. I love playing with Vivian. Vivian‘s just such a great guitar player. Unfortunately, Jimmy Bain, the original bass player from DIO and a good mate, passed; he died in January on the DEF LEPPARD rock cruise, and it was shocking. So we took some time off. And since then we’ve played, I think, two gigs, and we had Phil Soussan on bass from OZZY [OSBOURNE] and a good friend, and Erik Norlander on keyboards. And Andy Freeman on vocals — a great singer; he’s amazing. It’s a band where… Sometimes you play in bands and you look at the setlist and you go, ‘Shit, we’ve still got eight songs to go?’ This band is, like, ‘Oh, we’ve only got eight more songs. That’s too bad,’ you know? It’s one of those bands. We just love playing together and hanging out together.”

On performing with the Temecula Valley Symphony on June 18 on the steps of the Temecula Civic Center in Temecula, California:

Vinny: “My fiancée, Joey [Wester], put together. We went to see the orchestra, and she said, ‘How would you like to play with them?’ And I said, ‘That would be unbelievable.’ And that was a bucket list item — to play [LED ZEPPELIN‘s] ‘Kashmir’ with an orchestra. I had my monitors blasting with the orchestra. So we did it, and it was Craig Goldy [DIO] on guitar, myself on drums, Rudy Sarzo [OZZY OSBOURNE, QUIET RIOT] on bass and Andy Freeman, who’s in LAST IN LINE, on vocals. And we did songs like ‘Love Reign O’er Me’ [by] THE WHO, ‘No More Tears’ [by] OZZY [OSBOURNE], with the orchestra part in it, ‘Nights In White Satin’ [by the MOODY BLUES], something I normally wouldn’t play. And just songs like that. [There were] 1,500 people [there]; the place was packed. It was outside. Beautiful night. So that was a definite highlight of my career — something like that; I never did that before, and it was awesome. We’ll try to put another one together, ’cause it was killer. And everybody loved it. There were more people after that show going, ‘Oh, man. That was so great.'”

LAST IN LINE — the band featuring DEF LEPPARD guitarist Vivian Campbell alongside fellow founding DIO member Vinny Appice, plus singer Andrew Freeman, who has previously fronted HURRICANE and LYNCH MOB — will embark on its first-ever European tour this fall.

The band’s debut album, “Heavy Crown”, was released on February 19 via Frontiers Music Srl. The CD was recorded at a Santa Clarita, California studio with producer Jeff Pilson, a veteran bassist who has played with DIO, FOREIGNER, DOKKEN and T&N, among others.

GENE SIMMONS On Living In America: There Is 'No Place Like This On Earth'

GENE SIMMONS On Living In America: There Is 'No Place Like This On Earth'

Radio host Arroe Collins recently conducted an interview with KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons for the “Unplugged & Totally Uncut” podcast. You can now listen to the chat using the Spreaker widget below. A couple of excerpts follow (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET).

On his many philanthropic endeavors:

Gene: “We are the luckiest bastards who ever walked the face of the planet, ’cause we get to live in America. Those of us, especially, who are here legally, and I’m a legal immigrant, because there is a difference. I went, I stood in line and waited for my turn and entered the country legally.

“This country gives more than any other country on the face of the planet. Think about it: there are anywhere from twelve to twenty [million] illegal immigrants in America. That’s more than most of the populations of the countries on the planet. Did you know that? There are more people here, because this is the land of opportunity. I don’t remember the last boatload of people who dropped to their knees on a shore and said, ‘Thank you, God, we finally made it to the shores of France.’ That’s never gonna happen. Here you’re in America, and over here you can be anybody. Yes, it’s a racist country, there are people with decidedly racist points of views, and yet we have an African-American president — two terms. Yes, its’ a sexist country, but Hillary [Clinton] is running for president. And you can have a man I’ve known for a while, Donald Trump, who can freely speak his mind whether people like it or not. [There’s] no place like this on earth.”

On whether he would be willing to share his knowledge as a businessman to get this country moving forward again:

Gene: “Sure, but I’m not a political person. You know, if you’re my friend and your breath stinks, the least I could as your friend is to tell you your breath stinks and you’ve overweight. That’s not a criticism; you’re trying to help. If I can’t tell my friend his breath stinks and he’s too fat, which is dangerous to his health, why call yourself a friend?

“Politicians have a mandate to themselves. What they’re trying to do is to get re-elected. So it seems to me the better off you are, the more money you make, the more of a businessman or a businesswoman you are, the less you need the amount of money that the government pays you as a salary. So I’d be willing to serve for a dollar a year, but don’t you fucking dare — pardon me for the French — try to tell me what to say. I’m gonna tell it the way it is, and politicians don’t.”

KISS kicked off the “Freedom To Rock” tour on July 4 with in Tucson, Arizona. The trek is hitting 40 cities through the summer — many of them places that the band has either never played or hasn’t played in years.

Watch BLACK SABBATH's Entire Performance At OZZFEST MEETS KNOTFEST

Watch BLACK SABBATH's Entire Performance At OZZFEST MEETS KNOTFEST

Fan-filmed video footage of BLACK SABBATH‘s September 24 performance at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest at San Manuel Amphitheater and Festival Grounds in San Bernardino, California can be seen below.

This is the second, and final, leg of the band’s “The End” farewell tour. They played across the country earlier this year.

SABBATH‘s setlist for the Ozzfest Meets Knotfest concert was as follows:

01. Black Sabbath
02. Fairies Wear Boots
03. After Forever
04. Into The Void
05. Snowblind
06. War Pigs
07. Behind The Wall Of Sleep
08. N.I.B.
09. Hand Of Doom
10. Rat Salad
11. Iron Man
12. Dirty Women
13. Children of the Grave

Encore:

14. Paranoid

BLACK SABBATH has announced that it will play its last show ever in the U.S. on November 12 at AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas. The gig will take place nearly five years to the day that the legendary act announced their reunion.

The group has also added two more headlining shows to its North American trek, on November 8 at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma and November 10 at Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

These dates come at the end of the band’s North American tour, which kicked off on August 17 in Wantagh, New York.

SABBATH will make their final visits to Mexico and South America at the end of the year as they wind down their farewell tour.

SABBATH will bring its storied career to a close in the band’s native England, with seven shows booked there in January and February. The last two, on February 2 and February 4, will take place in SABBATH‘s hometown of Birmingham and will likely be their final shows.

The original lineup of SABBATH came together in 1969 with Ozzy Osbourne on vocals, Tony Iommi on guitar, Butler on bass and Bill Ward on drums. That lineup recorded and toured through 1978, and periodically reformed through the ’90s and 2000s for live work.

They regrouped again in late 2011 for a new album and tour, although Ward dropped out after just a few months. The remaining trio issued the “13” album in 2013 and backed it with a successful world tour — despite Iommi being treated for lymphoma since 2012.

Watch METALLICA's Entire Performance At GLOBAL CITIZEN Festival

Watch METALLICA's Entire Performance At GLOBAL CITIZEN Festival

METALLICA played an abbreviated set Saturday (September 24) at the Global Citizen festival in New York City. The free event on the Great Lawn in Central Park aired live on MSNBC.

The band’s setlist was as follows:

01. For Whom The Bell Tolls
02. Master Of Puppets
03. One
04. Nothing Else Matters
05. Enter Sandman

Check out video footage below.

The multi-hour concert, in its fifth year, encourages people to get involved and tackle global issues pertaining to health, education, hunger and the environment.

“I love my sons. I want them to ‘inherit the Earth,'” METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich said of the band’s participation in the event. “We keep waiting for future generations to solve the problems… I want lawmakers and laws to impose change. Nothing else will keep this world safe for my sons.”

Regarding METALLICA‘s philanthropic work, Ulrich said: “We do as much as we can… The hardest thing about these types of things is just finding the right balances between how vocal you are about it, because sometimes when you’re really vocal about it, there could be a fear of … just tooting our own horn.”

Asked why METALLICA wanted to perform at Global Citizen, Ulrich told the New York Post: “The festival has been on our radar for a few years. I was watching [Stephen] Colbert last year and Hugh Evans [co-founder of Global Poverty Project] came out. I was super-impressed at how passionate and personable he is. Not to rank do-gooders, but sometimes you wonder if there’s an ulterior motive. But he has an earnestness that is very infectious. And there’s a politically neutral tone to what he does.”

METALLICA‘s tenth studio album, “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct”, is scheduled for a November 18 release via Blackened Recordings. The long-awaited follow-up to 2008’s “Death Magnetic” consists of two discs, containing a dozen songs and nearly 80 minutes of music.

“Hardwired…To Self-Destruct” was produced by Greg Fidelman with frontman James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich. The band recorded the disc at its own studio.

METALLICA will next appear at Neil Young‘s Bridge School Benefit in Mountain View, California on October 22 and October 23.

Setlist from tonight! #metallica #metatglobalcitizen #gcfestival
