Famous Capitol Studios And Playing A Dream Gig At The Whiskey A Go Go On The
Sunset Strip

Celebrity Chef Guy Fieri Cooks For His Fellow Campers At Opening Night Bash*
The legendary *Todd Rundgren* will be a guest star at the upcoming session
of *Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp*, the phenomenon that's been pairing music
fans with rock stars since 1997. The multi-faceted artist, now known as
TR-i, has garnered acclaim not only as a musician but also as a songwriter,
record producer, video pioneer, computer software developer and interactive

The five-day session, which runs April 29th through May 3rd in Hollywood,
CA, gives music lovers - regardless of their musical ability - a
once-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, where *Todd Rundgren* will join them on stage.

This session's stellar group of camp counselors 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, Alan White (Yes), Elliot Easton (The Cars), Carmine Appice
(Vanilla Fudge) and Earl Slick (David Bowie's band)*. Additional rock stars
and special guests will be announced soon. Campers can also purchase a
"spouse package" if they'd like to bring along a friend or family member.

Chef Guy Fieri, the "bad boy of Food Network," is one of several celebrity
campers that have signed on for the April session. He has graciously offered
to cook up a special meal for participants at the opening night gala
kick-off party.
