    Drum Legend Carmine Appice Speaks on What Van Halen Took From His Band, Including on Iconic 'Eruption

    From Ultimate Guitar:

    Carmine: We did the Cactus comeback, and I remember I was talking to Eddie Van Halen about doing Vanilla Fudge in 2001.

    And Eddie said, 'F- the Fudge, bring Cactus back!'

    "They loved Cactus. Van Halen's 1984 hit 'Hot for Teacher' was - if you put 'Hot for Teacher' on and put our song 'Parchman Farm,' you'll hear the same kind of groove.



    "If you put our song called 'Let Me Swim,' the beginning of that, and you put 'Eruption,' it's the same.



    Also I'm the One...

    Beauty is life when life unveils
    her holy face.

    But you are life and you
    are the veil.

    Beauty is eternity gazing at itself
    in a mirror.

    But you are eternity
    and you are the mirror.

    -Kahil Gibran

    Can't believe I've wasted all my life listening to Van Halen, when I should have been listening to Cactus.

    Yeah. Really no debate.

    VH ripped off the beginning of Eruption and the main kernel of Iím The One directly from Cactus.

    Doesnít change anything for me when it comes to those tunes, though.

    Carmines been rather vocal lately. I'm a VF fan I always liked them more than pop rockers like the Beatles. Carmine has also said in the past he taught John Bonham most of his triplet grooves if memory serves me right. Who really cares at this point? Jeff Porcaro ripped off Bonham, Bernard Purdie and Bo Diddley. So what

    Iím glad Ed and Al likes cool shit growing up. They had a killer ear for good, somewhat underground rock and blues. They were snobs when they were kids, I love it. Everyone smart takes the best shit they have heard and applies it to their area. It doesnít make it any less creative, it makes them intelligent.
