So, I got this email from Zak the other day. During the whole 'on-tour' gig starting back in June, they said that there was an informal 'battle of the bands' and the winning band would get an all expenses paid trip to the Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp in London, which, let's be honest...would blow … Continue reading RRFC: London????
OK. This is going to be the last post about Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp for a little while (because frankly, the more I talk about it, the more I miss the actual experience of playing on those stages...or hell, any stage for that matter. And at this point in my life, I'm not quite … Continue reading RRFC:Hollywood Ending vs. Reality TV
So, one thing that this whole Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp contest/experience has done for me is renew my interest in music. Not that I ever really went away from it, but it just seemed like it was sidelined for a while.In addition to the amazing trip (of which I've written much, and will probably … Continue reading RRFC: Contest Spoils
OK. I've saturated the blog with RRFC stuff to last for days. I think it's gonna be a few days (at least) before I post any more about the camp, but I did want to leave you with what I thought was a pretty cool pic.
I am not a huge 'gimme your autograph' kind of guy. But even I recognized the potential for coolness to be had at the Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp. I took an old sketchbook from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum and that became my Autograph Book. I wanted to have a page … Continue reading RRFC: Miscellaneous Signage
It hardly seems real. But it is. We drove through the night from San Francisco to LA and pulled up to the Grafton sometime in the wee hours of the morning. In what can only be described by mere mortals as a 'whirlwind of amazingness' we unloaded. I had to get a shot with Rob, … Continue reading RRFC: Los Angeles (Aug. 26th)
So...we played the Fillmore. The LEGENDARY Fillmore. What could possibly top that?? If you had asked me that right after the show, I would have not had an answer for you. Because in my mind, nothing could top that. We stayed through Kings X set-which I have to say, I really am starting to dig. … Continue reading RRFC: San Francisco-The Aftershock
Alright, now on with the Camp. This was my 3rd Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp. I couldn't believe it. I had to pinch myself-really (serving two purposes-making sure I wasn't just dreaming, and making sure the NyQuil had worn off). I was also just a TAD nervous. I'd checked the list and I was the … Continue reading RRFC: San Francisco (Aug. 25th)
Vegas was quite amazing, to be honest. And the turnout at the Hard Rock was even better than the crowd at the Marquee (which kind of surprised me since we didn't have the headliners that we had in Phoenix). So, Sunday was our travel day. I don't know how late the rest of the VIPs … Continue reading RRFC: San Francisco -The Trip (Aug. 24th)
After getting through the Phoenix show, we all piled on the VIP Bus. Courtney (the tour go-to lady from Rockcamp), Nathalie (a doctor from Canada), Bill (a surgeon from Canada), Nathan (a concrete contractor from Palm Springs), and me. And I was tired, boys, lemme tell you. The emotional roller-coaster, the adrenaline, the flu...all combined … Continue reading RRFC: Las Vegas (Aug. 23rd)
