    Carmine has played with MANY different artists and bands besides Vanilla Fudge.

    Cactus, Blue Murder, Ted Nugent, Paul Stanley, Beck Bogart and Appice, Marty Friedman, King Kobra... and others I'm not able to remember offhand.

    ^^^ Well yes, but Vanilla Fudge is the band given next to his name in the poll, so naturally that is what members will base their vote off of. :bonk:

    Not really, ILJP....I associate him with Beck & Bogart more than I do Vanilla Fudge......probably because I totally enjoyed

    Ahh, well let me rephrase myself then: some members will base their vote off of that. (???)

    It won't matter in this round anyway, he's up against Peter Criss. I think Carmine is a better drummer than Criss, but Criss was the first drummer in Kiss and I have to give him some props for the one round he'll be a part of, I"m sure he'll get crushed and Carmine will be off to Rd2 without a problem.

    Yeah quite a bit of these drummers played with many different acts. I would have listed them all if I could ;) I like Cactus an awful lot as well.

    BTW: for anyone who thinks that Peter Criss can't drum... check out the drums in this live version of 100,000 years:



    Starting at about the 2:40 mark and going forward and getting better as it goes.

    I still don't think Criss is a great drummer...he played his part decent in KISS, similar to Phil Rudd in AC/DC, but Peter gets blown away by anyone on the list with the exception of Rick Allen
