Video of AEROSMITH frontman Steven Tyler talking about his upcoming stint as the headliner of the Hollywood session of Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp — the phenomenon that's been pairing music fans with rock stars since 1997 — can be viewed at AEROSMITH's official fan club AeroForceOne.
Whether campers are accomplished musicians or have only ever played air guitar, each band will learn from Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp's rock star counselors (including Grammy Award-winning producer Mark Hudson) how to rock out to some of the biggest hits of all time — songs like "Livin' On The Edge", "Walk This Way", "Dream On", "Dude (Looks Like a Lady)", "Love in an Elevator", "Janie's Got a Gun", "Cryin'" and "Jaded".
The five-day session, which runs April 29 through May 3 in Hollywood, California, gives music lovers — regardless of their musical ability — a once-in-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.
This session's all-star roster of musicians also 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 (producer/songwriter)
Alan White (YES)
Elliot Easton (THE CARS)
Carmine Appice (VANILLA FUDGE)
Kip Winger (WINGER) (head counselor)
