The star-studded event will also include comedic performances by Jay Leno and Robin Williams. Courtney "was great [at rehearsal Friday] — killed Iggy's 'Search And Destroy'!" CAMP FREDDY guitarist Billy Morrison (DOHENY, ex-THE CULT) writes in an online posting. "And Scott Weiland is also making his CAMP FREDDY debut with us [Saturday] — and it was so much fun running through the songs with him [Friday]."
