The Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp will take an alternative turn this summer.
Hot off a pre-Rock and Roll Hall of Fame edition with Kiss' Gene Simmons and Tommy Thayer, the Las Vegas-based camp will bring in Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell, Stone Temple Pilots six-stringer Dean DeLeo and Jane's Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins for a session that runs July 31-Aug. 3 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, wrapping up with a live performance by campers and counselors at the House of Blues inside the facility.
Regular counselors Peter Klett from Candlebox and Rudy Sarso (Quiet Riot, Blizzard of Ozz, Whitesnake, etc.) will also be there, and additional counselors are expected to be named at a later date.
The camp's "curriculum" will focus on an alt-rock repertoire, founder and CEO David Fishof tells Billboard, running through songs by Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Smashing Pumpkins as well as the counselors' own bands.
