Why no mention of Vanilla Fudge with beak through inventive drumming by Carmine Appice ?

I agree — Carmine has always been amazing. Since the cover story was the 200 Greatest Moments In Drumming, which moment involving Carmine would you have chosen for the story?

Just as Ginger Baker was to the spirit and the direction of Cream, Carmine was to Vanilla Fudge. I would say “You Keep Me Hanging on” is my pick to show how drums could paint the music in vivid colors! and make you feel it.

As a second thought, the revolution in drumming/rock drumming, IMO, came (post beach boys) was inspired by Ginger Baker, Mitch Mitchell and included Carmine. What do you think?
