Long Island Music Legends, Vanilla Fudge, on Tom Needham’s The Sounds of Film

Thursday, December 28, 2017
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Legendary members of the rock group Vanilla Fudge, Carmine Appice and Vinny Martell, will be Tom Needham’s exclusive guests for the final ‘Sounds of Film’ of 2017 on Thursday at 6 PM on WUSB. They will be talking about Vanilla Fudge’s influential music career and their new DVD/CD, ‘Live At Sweden Rock – The 50th Anniversary.’

Originally formed in 1967, Long Island’s Vanilla Fudge members Carmine Appice, Mark Stein, Vinny Martell and Tim Bogart became famous for playing re-vamped rock versions of popular soul hits. They became one of the most successful psychedelic rock groups to emerge out of the 1960’s with sold out world tours, hit singles and albums, and a reputation for cutting-edge musicianship. At one point, they toured with Jimi Hendrix, and Led Zepplin was their opening act. Their hit single “You Keep Me Hanging On” landed them on ‘The Ed Sullivan Show,’ ‘The Dick Cavett Show’ and ‘The Merv Griffin Show.’ On October 15, 2006, they were inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame along with Billy Joel, Joan Jett and Twisted Sister.
