The film — the trailer for which dropped on Tuesday (Dec. 29) — charts the twenty-five-year history of Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp, the annual interactive music event launched by founder David Fishof in the ’90s.
Set to premiere Jan. 21, 2012 after making the festival rounds earlier in 2019, Rock Camp features appearances by everyone from Cooper and Judas Priest to Joe Perry and Nancy Wilson, while following four campers living out their rock star fantasies. “You would have a 15-year-old kid playing drums and a dentist on guitar. If this band were a real band, it would be the weirdest band ever, but cool!” Cooper explains of the camp’s unique value.
The nearly two-minute trailer also features archival footage of everyone from Steven Tyler and Brian Wilson to Sebastian Bach and Slash, all of whom have come face to face with campers over the years thanks to the camp’s unique format of pairing starstruck participants with rock and roll royalty.
“I can’t think of a more fun thing to do,” Cooper deadpans as the clip draws to a close. “I mean, it’s better than stamp collecting…”
