At least thats how its worked for former Vanilla Fudge drummer Carmine Appice and rocker Pat Travers, who are currently performing concerts as Travers & Appice T&A for short.
The group which also features bassist T.M. Stevens first performed together in a jam session at a music industry convention last year.
However, it only became permanent after another project with guitarist Rick Derringer called D&A was unable to work because of scheduling conflicts.
Appice is pleased with the results, which include a studio album and the recent concert CD, Live At The House Of Blues.
Although the group rocks, Appice says they arent afraid to dabble in other genres and cites the remake of Rod Stewarts disco hit he co-wrote, Dya Think Im Sexy, as proof.
As he puts it, We agreed to do three of his songs and three of mine and since I wrote that song I told him, That gives me the authority to include it.
