Todd Rundgren Signs Up For Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp
The five-day session, which runs April 29th through May 3rd in Hollywood, CA, gives music lovers - regardless of their musical ability - a once-a-lifetime opportunity to live like a rock star and jam with their idols. Participants form separate bands, each of which receives intensive coaching from a different rock star in preparation for the two big events that cap off this unforgettable experience. Each band records an original song with renowned engineer/producer Eddie Kramer (Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix) at the historic Capitol Studios. Located near Hollywood and Vine, the famed studios have hosted recording sessions for everyone from Frank Sinatra and the Beach Boys to Green Day and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Then the bands will rock all night, performing at the world-famous Whisky A Go Go on the Sunset Strip, where Todd Rundgren will join them on stage.
This session's stellar group of camp counselors includes Duff McKagan (Guns N' Roses, Velvet Revolver), Steve Lukather (Toto), Bruce Kulick (KISS), Mark Farner (formerly of Grand Funk Railroad), Slim Jim Phantom (Stray Cats), Mark Hudson, Alan White (Yes), Elliot Easton (The Cars), Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge) and Earl Slick (David Bowie's band). Additional rock stars and special guests will be announced soon. Campers can also purchase a "spouse package" if they'd like to bring along a friend or family member.
Chef Guy Fieri, the "bad boy of Food Network," is one of several celebrity campers that have signed on for the April session. He has graciously offered to cook up a special meal for participants at the opening night gala kick-off party.
