Purple fantasy camp

Flyer for the Purple RnR Fanrasy Camp,  March 2-5, 2017

Ian Paice, Steve Morse and Glenn Hughes will take part in the Purple themed Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp that will take place in Hollywood, California, on March 2-5, 2017.

The idea behind Rock and Roll Fantasy Camps is to “give the public the experience of living the life of a Rock Star, with Rock Stars, for a few days, and gain their knowledge along the way”.

This camp will include jams and master classes with the three stars, along with ‘camp councelors’ that list Vinny Appice and Joel Hekstra in their ranks, among other equally accomplished musicians. The camp concludes with the grand finale of Glenn Hughes performing at the Whisky A Go Go.

Living the life of a rock star doesn’t come cheap, and packages vary from $799 for a groupie (access to meet and greets, master classes, and a ticket to Whisky A Go Go) to $7749 for a headline/recording one (private jam with Paicey, Steve and Glenn, performing live with Glenn at the Whisky A Go Go, 8 hour studio session with a yet unnamed ‘famed producer’, plus the kitchen sink). And that does not include accommodation.

The packages are now on sale with early bird discounts before November 1. Tickets to the Whisky a Go Go show might probably be also available separately at some point in the future.

Any further questions can be resolved by either visiting www.rockcamp.com or contacting Monica Michaels at (888) 762-2263 ext. 7 or monica@rockcamp.com.

    Great idea to make some expierience with some great musicians …
    But – awfully expensive – for some poor talented musicians mostly not possible …

    “If I was a rich man”……..

    Either way, a jam with Paicey, Hughes and Morse? Now there is a Power Trio. Hope there is some footage of that after the fact.

    Wow. I have a cousin with cancer that I would love to give him a gift to go see and hear his idols one more time!

    Ted @ 14: If you can do it, do it for your cousin. You never know how long you have with cancer. I just lost my wife to cancer. She was diagnosed in May, died right in front of me here in September after bringing her home to do just that. I would like to treat myself to this camp just because right now, I find my interests (like music) hard to even get excited about. Hardest thing I have experienced in my life. Now I know how Jon Lord’s wife and Wendy Dio feel… Sorry to bring anyone down here.

    Yes Scott and Ted…

    Lost my dad the same way. My best friend. Diagnosed in October of 1991, died in December in my house where I was taking care of him. To this day, the worst day of my life. I am a huge Gary Moore fan and soon afterwards in 1992 he released his second Blues album “After Hours”. Great album by the way… I came across the song “Nothing’s the Same”. Hard to listen to without breaking down still to this day…..


    Just thought I would share this with you. See if it has the same effect on you…
