Episode 438: Vinny Appice

In Episode 438 of the Iron City Rocks we are joined once again by Vinny Appice. Vinny talks to us a special version of “Monsters & Heroes” released on the 10th anniversary of Vinny’s long-time band mate and friend, Ronnie James Dio. The track originally appeared on the 2017 album Sinister by Appice (featuring Vinny and brother Carmine Appice). Vinny talks about how Paul Shortino came up with the lyrics as a tribute to Ronnie, putting the video together, working with his brother Carmine, how playing varies with two drummers, and new material from Last In Line.
