Aspiring rock stars attending this year's Los Angeles Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp will not only have their chance to perform alongside members of KISS, Van Halen, Poison, Motorhead, Traffic, and Winger but also be part of a new VH1 Classic reality series.
Set for February 23-28 at a variety of locations throughout the Los Angeles music community, the acclaimed musical adventure takes attendees through grueling and joyful days like those of their favorite musicians. Each day a new thrilling challenge exists for the "rock campers" from the audition process, to forming bands, writing and recording music, and finally culminating in a "battle of the bands" concert at a legendary Los Angeles venue.
The participants are led through day-long sessions by some of the best in the music business. Already onboard to mentor the rock campers: Bret Michaels (Poison guitar tab), Ace Frehley (KISS), Michael Anthony (Van Halen/Chickenfoot), Mark Farner (formerly of Grand Funk Railroad), Lita Ford (The Runaways), Lemmy Kilmister (Motorhead), Dave Mason (Traffic), Kip Winger (Winger guitar tab), Bruce Kulick (KISS guitar tab), Gary Hoey (solo artist), Teddy Andreadis (Guns N' Roses guitar tab), Mark Hudson (producer, songwriter - Aerosmith guitar tab), Spike Edney (Queen guitar tab), Sandy Gennaro (Joan Jett/Pat Travers Band), Jeff Foskett (Beach Boys), Rami Jaffee (Foo Fighters guitar tab), Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot/Ozzy Osbourne guitar tab) and Richie Kotzen (solo artist).
All the while, Mark Burnett Productions will be on hand filming a four-episode, one-hour series that will air this July on VH1 Classic. The new, hour-long, weekly docu-series will feature 15 musicians from a variety of backgrounds and cities as they go through the transformative process of becoming "rock stars."
"Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp has been changing the lives of non-professional music lovers for years," says Camp founder David Fishof, "and the rock and roll legends who mentor them also wind up inspired by the interactions."
