Tony to appear at Rock'n'Roll Fantasy Camp: one-in-a-lifetime-experience for hardcore fans

 

It's been announced a while ago, an amazing experience, that a talented kid, a teenager starting to play an instrument or even an adult rock and roll hardcore fan, can have once in a life, is by joining the Hollywood's Rock'n'Roll Fantasy Camp, where his most surreal dreams will become true. Our Tony Iommi is to headline this fantastic event in February of next year. Our TonyIommiFanTastic team got in touch with Valerie from the Camp, a very nice and charming person, who gently shared with us some useful information. 

LEGENDARY GUITARIST TONY IOMMI, STEVE VAI, ALLMAN BROS. GUITARIST WARREN HAYNES AND OZZY GUITARIST ZAKK WYLDE TO JOIN FORCES AT ROCK ‘N’ ROLL FANTASY CAMP IN LOS ANGELES, FEB. 11-14 2016.

Four of the greatest guitarists come together in Los Angeles to headline one of the most amazing Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp’s ever assembled on Presidents Day/Grammy weekend, Feb. 11-14, 2016.  Campers will have the opportunity to meet and jam with guitarists Tony Iommi, Steve Vai, Warren Haynes, and Zakk Wylde at this once-in-a-lifetime event.  In addition, the weekend will culminate with campers and their bands performing at the Whisky A Go Go on the Sunset Strip.

“I’ve really enjoyed working with the students at Coventry University and the ‘Guitar Star’ contestants so I’m looking forward to meeting some more enthusiastic players at the Fantasy Camp,” said Iommi.

Tony Iommi is a founding member and lead guitar player of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy winning hard rock band, Black Sabbath.  He is synonymous with his innovative, de-tuned, dark riffs that are considered the blueprint for hundreds of bands that followed.  
Also appearing will be Warren Haynes, who is best known for his work as longtime guitarist with the Allman Brothers Band and founding member of the jam band Gov’t Mule, as well as touring with Phil Lesh and The Dead.  Haynes will be joined by Zakk Wylde, who is best known known as the guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne, and founder of the band Black Label Society. He was also the lead guitarist and vocalist in Pride & Glory, and as a solo artist he released “Book of Shadows.”  

Rounding out the line-up is Grammy Award-winning artist, Steve Vai. He has sold over 15 million albums and has recorded and toured with Frank Zappa, Public Image Ltd., Alcatrazz, David Lee Roth, Whitesnake, and as a solo artist.

Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp is a non-competitive atmosphere designed for all levels of musicians and music enthusiasts. Participants are placed in bands with like-minded people and skill level to make for an off-the-charts experience.  The bands will rehearse under the guidance of a rock star counselor including Vinny Appice (Dio), Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot), Tracii Guns (L.A. Guns), Vic Johnson (Sammy Hagar), Bjorn Englen (Yngwie Malmsteen)  and Kane Roberts (Alice Cooper).

ABOUT ROCK ‘N’ ROLL FANTASY CAMP: For our campers, this is a life changing experience. Some of the campers play well and even gave up careers as musicians to become CEOs and lawyers. Some campers can’t play at all. What they all have in common is passion for rock music. At Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp they all get to pursue their passion – and meet, and play with the artists who became the soundtrack of their lives

He feels fortunate to have seen their talent first hand. David's desire to share this experience with you, gave him the inspiration to produce the one-of- a-kind, Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp.
