Paul Stanley, Judas Priest Taking Part in 2016 Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp
Is there anything better than spending a couple days over the summer in sunny California? Throw in the opportunity to jam and learn from KISS frontman Paul Stanley and Judas Priest and the answer is unequivocally a resounding 'yes!' Both will be taking part in the 2016 'Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp' in Hollywood, giving fans a chance to hang out with some of their biggest idols and inspirations.
Paul Stanley will be featured at the June installment of the camp, appearing at the world-famous Whiskey A Go Go on the Sunset Strip alongside Eagles legend Don Felder and Grand Funk Railroad's Mark Farner from June 23 - 26. Judas Priest will be featured at the August edition from Aug. 4 -7 where they will perform with Rob Halford, Richie Faulker, Ian Hill and Scott Travis. The band has taken part in the camp before and their reappearance has been dubbed "Vol. 2: Hell Bent for Hollywood."
Campers are divided into their own bands where they begin rehearsals with camp counselors like bassist Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osbourne, Quiet Riot, Whitesnake), drummer Vinny Appice (Dio, Black Sabbath) and Tracii Guns (L.A. Guns) and a dozen more. They will learn how to play some of rock's biggest songs, receive lessons about stage presence and hear stories from the road as they hone their skills in preparation of the big night. The bands will perform at the Whiskey A Go Go where they will all be joined by the rockers at the camp like Stanley and Judas Priest.
Stanley recently reconnected with his old bandmate Ace Frehley, contributing work on the Spaceman's solo covers album, Origins Vol. 1, singing on the Free cover, "Fire and Water." It marked the first time the duo have recorded together in almost two decades.
