Billboard Magazine
is premiering “Mothers Space,” the new music video from Carmine Appice’s GUITAR ZEUS album. Carmine loved working with current Sons of Apollo/ former Guns N’Roses’ guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal. Carmine praises Bumblefoot for his mastery of the fretless guitar, and how easy he is to work with, “He is one of the nicest people I know. Talented singer player writer. Love to create good music. Always helpful to others, and he gets the job done quick. And does it great. “

Bumblefoot has mutual respect: “Carmine and Tony (Franklin, bassist) are such a killer team. They take the song from trippy vibes to solid, heavy grooves. Love playing this song!”

“Mothers Space” can be viewed here:

The video features visual affects such as distortion and cuts between a recording studio and our polluted planet. It asks the question, “What are we doing to our planet? What does it take to communicate with what’s we’re doing to our planet?”

In addition to smoke stacks and trash in our water, the video includes lyrics to make sure the message comes through. “We’re counting on you,
Don’t look away,” and “Are we too late?”

Album available now on CD, vinyl, download and across all streaming platforms here:
