Biography

Born in Long Island, New York, when pizza was only 25 cents a slice, Louis Appel went on to build one of the most versatile drumming resumes in the New York area. Best known for his work with Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, Louie also worked with Tom Verlaine, Peter Frampton and Bruce Springsteen, to name but a few. Well known for his ability to put bands and musicians together in a matter of hours, networking was definitely another of his natural attributes. His vast musical experience, coupled with his pride and loyalty to superior equipment, resulted in endorsements from SABIAN, GMS Drums, Vater Drumsticks, DW Pedals and Hardware, Evans Drumheads, and Rhythm Tech Percussion.

Louie had a larger-than-life personality, and an even bigger heart. He will be missed. Rest in Peace.
