Be A Pupil At Fantasy School Of Rock

Music fans are to get the chance to play with members of The Rolling Stones, Cream and Procul Harum at this year's Rock‘N’Roll Fantasy Camp in May.

The event, at Abbey Road Studios in London, promises ‘campers’ the chance to learn from legendary musicians including former Rolling Stone Bill Wyman, Cream’s Jack Bruce, Procul Harum's Gary Brooker and Spencer Davis.

The camp will prepare the music campers to perform their own special gig at the birthplace of The Beatles, The Cavern Club in Liverpool on May 28.

Roger Daltrey of The Who, a previous camp counsellor, said he feels "quite passionate about anything that encourages people in music. It’s great seeing people with such enthusiasm having fun.”

A forthcoming New York based event from August 31 to September 3rd promises KISS singer Paul Stanley, Ted Nugent and Scott Ian of Anthrax and Mountain.
