The SABIAN family extends our heartfelt condolences to the family of artist Louie Appel, who passed suddenly in his sleep earlier this week. Born in Long Island, New York, when Pizza was only 25 cents a slice, Louis went on to build one of the most versatile drumming resumes in the New York area. Perhaps 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. Louie had a larger-than-life personality, and an even bigger heart. He will be missed. Rest in Peace.
