Cactus - The American Led Zeppelin

They were called "The American Led Zeppelin" back in 1970. Tall words, indeed, but CACTUS - Carmine Appice, Tim Bogert, Jim McCarty and the late Rusty Day (who died in 1982) - came out only months after their Brit counterparts, only to flame out brightly after four albums, Cactus, One Way… Or Another, 'Ot 'n' Sweaty and Restrictions, before 1973 even started. Now, four decades later, the band that made such an impression with their loud blues-edged hard rock madness, the band that influenced the likes of Van Halen, Joe Bonamassa, David Coverdale and Kid Rock, the band that foreshadowed heavy music itself, are back.

This time Carmine, along with ex-Savoy Brown lead singer Jimmy Kunes, harmonica player Randy Pratt, guitarist Paul Warren and bassist Jimmy Caputo, are creating that lusty, macho soul. Kunes' leather-lunged pipes atop this hot'n'nasty blues-metal machine create quality, head-first rock'n'roll. Temple of the Blues and Tightrope are the band's newest studio albums; compelling steps into the future upon a bridge firmly built in the past.
