Rock Veterans Sign On For Fantasy Camp
Former and present members of Guns N' Roses, Velvet Revolver, Yes, Kiss, the Stray Cats, Grand Funk Railroad and Alice Cooper's and Paul McCartney's bands will take part in next year's Hollywood edition of Rock'n'Roll Fantasy Camp, which will take place April 29-May 3.
This year's camp "counselor" lineup includes Duff McKagan (ex-Guns N' Roses, Velvet Revolver), Mark Farner (ex-Grand Funk Railroad) Bruce Kulick (ex-Kiss), Slim Jim Phantom (Stray Cats), Alan White (Yes), Rusty Anderson (McCartney), Teddy Andreadis (ex-GNR and Alice Cooper) and songwriter/producer Mark Hudson, who's worked with Ringo Starr, Aerosmith and Ozzy Osbourne.
Camp organizer David Fishof promises some "special guests," while celebrity chef Guy Fieri will prepare the opening night meal.
As in previous years, the campers will organize into bands and record an original song at Capitol Studios with Eddie Kramer, as well as play as part of a concert at the Whisky A Go Go. This year's camp will also feature a companion package offering music lessons, dinners and access to the camp activities for plus-ones.
Registration has opened at RockCamp.com, with a $500 discount for those signing up before Dec. 22.
