King Kobra is a glam metal group founded by drummer Carmine Appice after his tenure with Ozzy Osbourne in 1984. The band during the time of their first two albums included four relatively unknown musicians: vocalist Mark Free, guitarist David Michael-Philips, guitarist Mick Sweda, and bassist Johnny Rod. After two albums on Capitol records (''Ready to Strike'' - November 9, 1985 and ''Thrill of a Lifetime'' - 1986), Appice decided to dissolve the band and join guitarist John Sykes on his Blue Murder project in 1989. In 2010 a new King Kobra emerged with, of course, Carmine Appice, Paul Shortino taking over vocal duties, Michael Sweda on guitar, and David Henzerling on guitar.
