A bit of rock-n-roll history
by Dr. John Hart, Professor of Communication

As drummer for Vanilla Fudge, Carmine Appice set the grooves for the groundbreaking band’s 1967 psychedelic debut. The Fudge had no precedent. The band was totally unique. No rock group, up until that point, had ever so lugubriously s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d out well-known pop tunes like the Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby” and “Ticket To Ride,” or, most famously, The Supremes’ Motown classic “You Keep Me Hangin’ On.” With Mark Stein’s Grand Guignol keyboard theatrics, Tim Bogert’s amazing and trippy bass runs, and guitarist Vince Martell’s era-happy soloing, Appice boomed like no other drummer in rock history. Their debut album still stands today as a hard rock classic.

Chaplain's Corner

One of the great life lessons taught me as a young person was to always put your best foot forward no matter what you were doing. I didn’t always follow that advice, but anyone in my classes know that is a mantra I use to inspire us to offer our best to the world in everything we do. The rewards are tremendous, especially as we offer our best in the “little” things of life. [More]
