PAUL STANLEY, PHIL COLLEN To Teach Punters How To Rock On 'Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp'August 2, 2011
"Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp" is back and bigger than ever with an all-star lineup of legendary music icons that are sure to get metal and rock enthusiasts pumped up. Tune in to VH1 Classic on Saturday, August 20 at 10 p.m. ET/PT for the show's Season Two premiere.
VH1 Classic and executive producer Mark Burnett are bringing back a new group of 'average Joes' for their once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to put their music skills to the ultimate test and find out if they have what it takes to be a true rock star on "Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp". Hosted by "American Idol" sweetheart and Vanguard recording artist Kimberly Caldwell, the show will feature 15 musicians from a variety of backgrounds and cities as they go through the unforgettable transformation of having to put it all on the line and find out if they have what it takes to make it in the cutthroat world of rock 'n' roll. Broken into three groups of five, each group of campers will create a band and be assigned a rock star camp counselor (Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum and Mark Hudson) who will give them pointers and guidance, transforming the 9-to-5'ers into center stage front men and women. For one week each group will have the opportunity to rehearse and learn the ropes from other special-guest rock gods who drop by including Paul Stanley of KISS, Phil Collen of DEF LEPPARD, Marky Ramone of the RAMONES and more. At the end of the week, each group should have the music know-how, fresh looks and rock-star swagger to give an unforgettable performance to a group of legitimate rock stars who are acting as judges.
Will they pass the test and be flocked with adoring fans or booed off the stage? The stakes are high as the band voted best by the fans will win the opportunity musicians can only dream about a once-in-a-lifetime performance with legendary rock star Sammy Hagar.
Catch the complete first season at FantasyCamp.VH1.com. New episodes will launch online every Monday morning following the show's on-air premiere.
"Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp" is executive-produced by Mark Burnett, David Fishof and Lee Metzger for Mark Burnett Productions and by Lee Rolontz and Keshia Williams for VH1.
