Meat Loaf, Ace Frehley to lead rock fantasy camp
By Gary Graff
DETROIT (Billboard) - Meat Loaf, Yes singer Jon Anderson and former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley will be the headline "counselors" at this year's Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp, which will take place November 17-22 in Hollywood. A shorter and less expensive session will also be held November 12-15.
"Meat Loaf has been to baseball fantasy camps before," RRFC founder David Fishof tells Billboard.com, "so I wrote a letter to his manager to invite him to ours. He's a fun guy. You have to have a certain kind of personality, and Meat Loaf is that personality. He's a character."
The spring RRFC, headlined by Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler, sold out all 85 spots, according to Fishof. A variety of camp packages are available from $7,999 to $12,498. RRFC has also set its spring dates, February 10-15 or 12-15 in Hollywood and March 25-31 at Abbey Road Studios in London, England.
