Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp Announce Third String
(Submitted News) Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp is bringing on three new counselors to work with previously announced special guest artists Steven Tyler (Aerosmith), Duff McKagan (Guns N' Roses, Velvet Revolver) and Todd Rundgren at its next session: Foo Fighters and The Wallflowers keyboardist Rami Jaffee, original Chicago drummer Danny Seraphine and Platinum femme rockers Vixen's bassist Share Ross (formerly Share Pedersen). The session will run April 29th through May 3rd in Hollywood, CA. A host of other artists are also scheduled to participate, including Grammy award-winning producer Mark Hudson, Steve Lukather (Toto), Bruce Kulick (KISS), Alan White (Yes), Elliot Easton (The Cars) and many other music legends.
"I've not done anything like this before. I'm expecting just a whole lot of fun," Steven Tyler recently told billboard.com. "I think they'll find it very interesting when I tell them that it's not really necessarily about practicing and hitting all your notes. I think it's all about finding a passion, a way of singing something in a way that nobody has ever done it before."
The session kicks off with a gala opening night bash at the Gibson Guitar Showroom in Beverly Hills on April 29th. Campers will be divided into separate bands, each guided by a rock star counselor, and spend the days writing and rehearsing. Nights are filled with jam sessions and master classes. Camp culminates with each band recording its own original song at the historic Capitol Studios in Hollywood and performing at the Whisky A Go Go. The best song will be played by famed DJ Mancow on his nationally syndicated radio show.
Celebrity chef Guy Fieri, the "bad boy" of Food Network, will prepare a special barbeque for the campers and emcee the closing night concert, which will also feature a charity auction of exclusive autographed memorabilia from Tyler and the other participating rock stars. The auction will benefit The MusiCares Foundation, which provides assistance to music people in need.
